HPE to Stop Selling VSI OpenVMS Products

As part of its exiting the OpenVMS market, Hewlett Packard Enterprises (HPE) is ending all sales of new VSI products and support effective June 30, 2019. According to HPE, this decision was made in recognition of the execution capabilities that VSI has achieved to assure long term satisfaction for customers and partners. This along with the fact that sales of HPE older OpenVMS products ended in 2018, confirms that VMS Software, Inc. is the only company where customers can purchase their OpenVMS products to help them modernize their OpenVMS environment.

Since HPE (then HP) announced their plans in 2013 to exit the OpenVMS Operating System by 2020, they have demonstrated a willingness to work with VSI to ensure a smooth transition based on customer requirements and satisfaction. As you can see from the historical information below, both companies have tried to live up to this commitment.
