The VMS operating system is a proprietary operating system manufactured by the company Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC), who were purchased by Compaq - who in turn were puchased by Hewlett Packard. VMS used to run exclusively on VAX processors, but newer machines of DEC can also run VMS on ALPHA processors (also called AXP processors). The latter can also run the OSF/1 flavour of UNIX. VMS is called OpenVMS today. You can learn more about VMS here.
