Fujitsu Siemens Computers is to provide CA’s tape management products for z/OS mainframes.

Through the agreement, Fujitsu mainframe users will be able to run  CA’s CA 1 Tape Management and CA 1 Tape Management Copycat Utility.

The products will enable z/OS users to optimise tape management for data backup with CentricStor, and will provide greater flexibility to adapt their IT environment to company requirements, said Fujitsu.

CentricStor is a virtual tape system that offers integrated “disk-to-disk-to-tape” architecture for all corporate data. Fujitsu has certified the CA solutions for operation with its CentricStor environment.

Fujitsu plans to integrate CentricStor’s event-controlled reporting with CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager to support CentricStor users in storage planning and automation. 

CA 1 Tape Management automates the lifecycle management of z/OS tape data to save time and money while providing comprehensive protection against the inadvertent destruction of tape files saved on CentricStor.

Users can take advantage of the CA 1 Tape Management Copycat Utility to easily migrate their data to a CentricStor environment, while the corresponding metadata remains consistent in the tape management database.

The CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager is a z/OS storage management system with centralised monitoring and policy-based automation. It helps reduce costs and administration by simplifying the management of complex enterprise storage environments.
