Third Party Hosting

Does anyone work for or know of any UK based companies that host VAX/VMS systems? Does the company host client hardware? We have a bespoke mission critical application that runs on some vintage VAX 6000 kit located in one of our data centres. However, the infracture overlords do not want to support any applications that run on the VAX/VMS platform (fools), which is why we are looking for third parties to run it.

Best Regards,

Steve

Re: Third Party Hosting


Hi Steve,

Based on my own web research, I made a list of OpenVMS System Management Service Providers (On-Site, Hosting, Outsourcing or Remote Management) Services Providers a few years ago. The list is organized by country.

Note: This list is not limited to just "Hosting" Services, and also the companies may have changed their spectrum of services since I compiled my list. There may also be new Service Providers that are relatively easy to find in Google that are not on the list. A list of OpenVMS Web Hosting Service Providers would be in a separate list.

Also Note: This list does not represent an endorsement of any of the companies listed by myself or my employer.

Here is the UK portion of that list...

I don't know about the UK, but HP provides hosting and business continuity services in the United States.

EDS UK can also provide hosting and system management services for VAX/VMS systems and can help you move to current VMS.
