Evolving OpenVMS Environments: An Exercise In Continuous Computing

The ongoing need to operate ever more efficiently with fewer assets and lower risk would seem to complicate hardware and software upgrades. In fact, the opposite is true. This session will show how OpenVMS features and coming features including OpenVMS on HPVM, can be used to achieve higher levels of uninterrupted availability while still decreasing expenses and risk.


Robert Gezelter has worked with OpenVMS since the initial release of VAX/VMS for the VAX-11/780. His work with OpenVMS clusters similarly dates from the announcement of VAXclusters.

He has over 31 years of experience consulting on Information Technology matters and is a Contributing Editor of the recently published Computer Security Handbook, 5th Edition, released in January.

Mr. Gezelter has also spoken and published extensively on operating systems, networks, performance, security, tools, and similar areas. Since 1985, he has spoken worldwide for organizations including ACM, Connect (previously Encompass/DECUS), ISSA, ISACA, and IEEE. He was appointed to the IEEE Computer Society's Distinguished Visitors Program for a three-year term in 2004. Mr. Gezelter holds BA and MS degrees in Computer Science from New York University.

He was also a Contributing Editor to the Computer Security Handbook, 4th Edition (2002), the 3rd Edition (1995), and contributed to the Handbook of Information Security (2005).

Mr. Gezelter is in private practice, with clients ranging from the Fortune 10 to small businesses, both locally and internationally. He maintains his offices in Flushing, New York. He can be contacted via his firm's www site at http://www.rlgsc.com.
