CA Announces 'Day One' Support for IBM's z/VM 6.1

Immediate Availability of Best-in-Class Management for Virtualized Mainframe Environments Helps Customers Reap Benefits of New Features

ISLANDIA, N.Y., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CA (Nasdaq: CA) today announced "Day One" support for IBM's z/VM® 6.1 across its industry-leading mainframe systems, security, and storage management product lines -- continuing its record of immediate support for new releases of the VM operating system. This immediate support helps CA customers and business partners reap the full benefits of the new platform's features without delay.

z/VM V6.1 is optimized for consolidating workloads on System z10 servers, allowing IT organizations to build dynamic data center infrastructures that are exceptionally resilient, cost-effective, and capable of being flexibly expanded and contracted as necessary to meet changing business needs. Organizations are increasingly consolidating workloads to the mainframe and relying on z/VM to provide the virtualization and resource-sharing capabilities to optimally exploit the power of Linux on System z®.

"CA is committed to providing the world's IBM mainframe users with the management capabilities they need, when they need them," said Michael Zinda, senior vice president in CA's Mainframe Business Unit. "Enhancing and extending our solutions for z/VM and Linux on System z is an integral part of our Mainframe 2.0 strategy."

CA offers a comprehensive set of z/VM v6.1 solutions that streamline and automate the management and security of this proven virtualization platform. These solutions help customers optimize z/VM and Linux on System z resources, reduce costs, protect critical data, secure systems resources, and align utilization to shifting demand patterns.

A significant factor in CA's ability to consistently provide Day One support for new IBM operating system releases is its employment of advanced development and quality assurance methodologies. By facilitating central management of integration across product lines and global operations, these methodologies enable rapid delivery of high quality management solutions designed to interoperate seamlessly with new releases of IBM's operating systems.
