 VSI OpenVMS Roadmap
 Herr Camiel Vanderhoeven, VMS Software Incorporated

This latest 2017-2019 product roadmap includes, among other things, the production release of VSI OpenVMS for Alpha and more details about the port of OpenVMS to x86-64.

Future Releases
In addition to launching the latest 8.4-2L1 Hudson Release and the previous Maynard and Bolton releases on HPE Itanium Poulson-based servers, our R&D department is already working on the next generation of platforms for OpenVMS. OpenVMS will be ported to the industry standard x86-64 platform, allowing OpenVMS to, for the first time, share a common hardware standard with the rest of the enterprise market.

 

 Introduction to the Intel x86 architecture
 Herr Camiel Vanderhoeven, VMS Software Incorporated

In this session, one of the engineers working on the x86 port will go through some of the features of the Intel x86 architecture, comparing it to the VAX, Alpha, and Itanium architectures along the way. This session will give you an appreciation of the differences and similarities between the different architectures OpenVMS will run on.

 

 Interesting Feature of the Intel x86 Architecture
 Herr Camiel Vanderhoeven, VMS Software Incorporated

The x86 architecture offers many features. One of the things we've done early on in the x86 porting project is learn about these many features to figure out where we may make use of these features in OpenVMS. This session will explore some of the more interesting ones.

This session will give you an appreciation of some of the complexities that need to be considered in the x86 porting project.

 

 State of the VSI OpenVMS x86 Port
 Herr Camiel Vanderhoeven, VMS Software Incorporated

This update provides a high level view of our current efforts to port OpenVMS to the Intel x86 hardware platform. The report highlights topics including: Compilers, Objects & Images, Early Boot Path, Virtual Machines, Dump Kernel, Paravirtualization, and Condition Handling.

 

 Porting Java 8 to OpenVMS
 Herr Camiel Vanderhoeven, VMS Software Incorporated

HPE and VSI have ported Java version 8 to OpenVMS. In this session one of the engineers who worked on this port will share how this was done, and what new Java features are now available on OpenVMS.

 

 Perl for VMS System Manager
 Herr Carl Friedberg, Comet & Company

I will discuss how VMS System Managers can install and use Perl, a premier Open Source scripting language, very popular on *n*x platforms as well as Windows. MRTG, a network monitoring tool, is written in Perl (with some C language glue). This course is very introductory, so if you already know Perl, you can skip this session. With luck you will come away with the tools you need to use perl productively on your own systems.

 

 Real world experience with VSI 8.4-2L1 and migration from Alphas
 Herr Gerrit Woertman, VMSConsultancy

New life for OpenVMS on Alpha?

Last year VSI made available an Evaluation Kit for OpenVMS 8.4-2 on Alpha. Based on the positive reactions they have now made a formal version. So all improvements developed for Itanium, where possible, implemented on Alpha. This version is an upgrade-only version from 7.3-2, 8.3, or 8.4. In this session you will hear/see experiences from the last couple of months with this Alpha-version. And hear about restrictions, and possibilities.

 

 Real World Itanium Migration the real truth
  Herr Carl Friedberg, Comet & Company

How do you migrate a running cluster with hundreds of thousands of lines of Basic code, Datrieve scripts, and FMS forms? Carefully, and with flexibility, it is possible. Carl will give a humorous and fun presentation about the real world of migration, and how to survive and still have time left for a Bier when it is done.

 

Assessing the Health and Performance of your OpenVMS Cluster Interconnect
 Herr Camiel Vanderhoeven, VMS Software Incorporated

In this session, one of the engineers working on the x86 port will go through some of the features of the Intel x86 architecture, comparing it to the VAX, Alpha, and Itanium architectures along the way. This session will give you an appreciation of the differences and similarities between the different architectures OpenVMS will run on.

 

 Oracle Rdb and Oracle Database on OpenVMS Product Update
 Herr Kevin Duffy, Oracle

This talk covers Oracle?s plans for Rdb and the Oracle Database on OpenVMS; product strategy; release history over the last year; currentdevelopment activity; current project priorities, major featurehighlights; product roadmaps and plans for future development over thenext 1 to 2 years. The purpose  is to provide the listener with anoverview of the plans and direction for both Oracle Rdb and the OracleDatabase on OpenVMS.

 

  Oracle Rdb Connectivity Management - What's New in V7.3.2
 Herr Kevin Duffy, Oracle and Herr Jim Murray, Oracle

Oracle Rdb Connectivity Manager (ORCM) is a graphical user interfacethat provides a server management utility from any platform where Java is available, to manage SQL/Service and JDBC servers running on OpenVMSserver systems. This is a hands on session that demonstrates the latestcapabilities with Version 7.3.2. New features include:  

          - New RMU Menu category
          - RMU Statistics
          - Find Schema Differences
          - External Tool Enhancements

 

OpenVMS and Thin-Provisioned Storage (Planned for the next event 2018)
Herr Keith Parris, HPE

Modern storage controllers implement Thin Provisioning, only allocating space for storage when it is actually written to, rather than pre-allocating space beforehand in preparation for future growth. This lowers the cost of storage, since storage need only be purchased at the rate it is actually used. OpenVMS has recently been enhanced with support for Thin Provisioning, being given the capability of notifying the storage controller when files are deleted, so the controller can free up the associated storage space. This session describes the new functionality and how it is enabled and used.

 

 VSI OpenVMS training (overview and discussion)
 Herr Gerrit Woertman, VMSConsultancy

VSI took over training for OpenVMS from Hewlett Packard. Training partners are Bruden (USA) and BGSoftware (EMEA). In this session you will hear about possible OpenVMS-courses. And at the end there are some questions about training-format for thefuture.

 

 Internet of Things (IoT) with Raspberry Pi - MQTT - OpenVMS
  Herr Gerrit Woertman, VMSConsultancy

Internet of Things (IoT) is a hype. Each computer company has plans with IoT.

In this session we will use a Raspberry Pi. Yep, the same computer that can simulate VAX/VMS with SIMH. The same small Raspberry Pi is a fun toy to showcase IoT. In a hands-on demo a Raspberry Pi will send temperature sensor-data to an Itanium RX2660 running VSI OpenVMS 8.4-2L1 as MQTT broker host. And a smartphone with the IoT MQTT Dashboard app will subscribe tot his IoT-data.            

Why use OpenVMS as MQTT broker? Just because of stability and security.

Detecting and Resolving Performance Bottlenecks Using Locking Data (Planned for the next event 2018
Herr Keith Parris, HPE

This session describes how you can detect potential I/O performance bottlenecks using data OpenVMS is already keeping behind-the-scenes on locking activity rates and on lock queues. It also includes real-world examples of how these techniques have been used to resolve a variety of problems in OpenVMS Clusters.

 

How to Identify and Solve Common OpenVMS Performance and Availability Issues (Planned for the next event 2018​)
Herr Keith Parris, HPE

This session describes factors adversely affecting high availability in OpenVMS and OpenVMS cluster environments, and performance problems frequently encountered by OpenVMS customers, and the tools and techniques used to detect and resolve them.
