eCube Systems and VMS Software Corporation building future for OpenVMS Users

eCube aligns its offerings with the product plans of the new VMS Software Inc. and its commitment to the future of VMS on modern chipsets.

Houston, Texas. July 30, 2014

eCube Systems, the leading provider of modern development tools and best practices for Continuous Integration on OpenVMS, announced today that it will align its offerings with those of the VMS Software Inc.(VS), a newly announced technology firm committed to delivering new versions of VMS on modern chipsets.

Today VMS Software, Inc. announced that Hewlett Packard (HP) has named it as the sole developer of future versions of the OpenVMS operating system and its layered product components. Under the agreement, VS will license OpenVMS operating system source code from HP to expand the OpenVMS product roadmap, by adding new hardware platform releases, beginning with a new version of OpenVMS for HP Integrity i4 servers based on Poulson, Intel® Itanium® Processor 9500 Series (rx2800i4, BL8xxi4).

"eCube Systems and its clients are pleased that the future of the OpenVMS operating system has been resolved in such a progressive and dynamic fashion," says Peter John Marquez, EVP at eCube Systems. "Organizations that use OpenVMS to run strategic applications now have long-term options they can build business plans around. We look forward to working with our clients and VMS Software Inc. to deliver powerful, secure and easily maintainable enterprise solutions."

NXTware Remote, eCube's modern Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment, simplifies and systematizes software engineering. It will be certified to work with every release from the VMS Software Corporation. The IDE's suite of tools and best practices for Continuous Integration, which automates much of the development process on VMS, will leverage eCube's close relationship with the VMS Software Inc. to ensure users get the most out of their VMS investment.

"eCube Systems is an integral part of the future of the VMS ecosystem," says Duane Harris, President of VMS Software Inc. "Our relationship with eCube and NXTware Remote will play an enabling role in the modernization of OpenVMS development and user's ability to quickly and efficiently develop and extend valuable enterprise applications."

"VMS Software Inc. is committed to providing user with the most secure, productive and flexible VMS operating systems ever," says Harris. "eCube's best-of-breed software engineering offerings ensure that those qualities extend to the development and deployment process."
