OpenVMS - hack-proof and crash resistant?

Wednesday, 14 July 2004, 4:39 PM EST

OpenVMS (originally known as VMS) is probably the best designed and most robust general purpose operating system in existence. It is also one of the least-known and appreciated, simply because it works quietly in the background without drama, unlike its noisier and more fussy siblings and offspring.

You will typically find OpenVMS in any environment that is serious about high availability, disaster tolerance, security, performance and scalability, especially when running real-time applications. Users include banks, stock exchanges, healthcare, manufacturing, aerospace, online billing, lotteries, chip manufacturing, oil and gas production, power stations, railways, government and secure public sector applications. In short, anything that really has to work.
