01 AUGUST 2008 – MVP Systems Software, Inc., a leading provider of automation, application, and task scheduling software, has announced a strategic partnership with automation and virtualization provider Salem Automation, Inc. (SAI). The agreement calls for MVP Systems to support JAMS users who use SAI’s virtualization software.

John Vottero, VP Product Development at MVP, States that “MVP already supports JAMS users who run SAI’s CHARON virtualization software. This partnership simply formalizes an existing relationship between our two companies. For users who are looking to extend the lifecycle of their VAX or Alpha Servers, SAI is the logical choice.”

MVP Systems offers JAMS (Job Access & Management System), a leading batch job processing and task scheduling solution for Windows, OpenVMS, UNIX, Linux, and NonStop systems. With file and job dependency support and resource-based and event-driven scheduling, JAMS is used by hundreds of organizations to automate millions of jobs each day. JAMS for OpenVMS can be run on VAX, Alpha, and Itanium Servers. For the OpenVMS version of JAMS, please visit the link below. www.mvpsi.com/DownloadCentral.aspx

Chuck Graham, Salem’s Vice President Sales and Marketing, states that “MVP has been a leader in the OpenVMS world since the early 1980’s. We are delighted to add them to the long list of vendors that support our technology.” Salem Automation offers the CHARON virtualization software to move the operating systems and applications from a DEC PDP, VAX or Alpha system to a new Windows server or workstation computer. The CHARON software allows you to move your entire VMS or RSX operating system and applications over to the new CHARON environment without a single modification! Application source code is not required, but if you have it, your IT staff can continue to modify and support your applications on the CHARON virtualization as you do now. Users will not even know you have moved to the CHARON virtual system, except their VMS and applications will run considerably faster on CHARON software!
