EMA Technology provide OpenVMS support and consultancy services.
We have been helping companies across the world manage their OpenVMS systems since
Many OpenVMS system owners find it difficult to source high quality and cost-effective
OpenVMS support personnel. Many have to resort to expensive contract staff or entrust
their OpenVMS systems to other disciplines on a best-efforts basis.
Many IT Departments cannot justify the cost of a full-time System Manager for their
OpenVMS systems. However, these same systems are often mission-critical, and any
failure can impact the business.
We provide OpenVMS system management and consultancy services on installations ranging
from single VAXes to Alpha/Integrity DTCS multi-site clusters.
If you have virtualised your OpenVMS platform or you are planning to do so, we also
have extensive experience in this area.
We offer a range of OpenVMS Support options:
If your support costs are spiralling out of control consider using our cost-effective
remote support service.
For most support issues a presence on-site is not needed, just a good communications
link into the OpenVMS servers.
One of our first actions when taking on a new OpenVMS Remote Support contract is
to set up proactive monitoring of the systems. This entails setting thresholds and
alarm conditions. We are then emailed through SMTP from OpenVMS to our desktops.
Routine maintenance and housekeeping jobs are also set up to run automatically. We
can then take immediate action to rectify the problem.
Full outsourced OpenVMS software Support:
At the other end of the scale, we can provide a permanent presence on site to support
your OpenVMS systems. In most cases one of our OpenVMS specialists can provide the
same support as a team of in-house support people.
Operating System upgrades and patching:
If day-to-day OpenVMS support is adequately covered by your staff but you are nervous
about impending operating system upgrades or patching we can help.
Over the years we have completed an untold number of upgrades and patches to all
types of OpenVMS systems.
Some of our customers simply use us as 3rd line support for their OpenVMS support
team. If a problem appears intractable they call us.
