CA Upgrades Storage Resource Manager

ISLANDIA, N.Y. -- CA (NASDAQ: CA) today announced new versions of its storage resource management software for mainframe and distributed systems that help customers reduce the cost of supporting their complex storage environments and address critical data protection and compliance objectives.

CA SRM r 11.7 provides centralized management of UNIX, Linux®, NetWare®, and Windows®-based storage resources across the enterprise—allowing IT staff to more effectively and efficiently allocate capacity, monitor usage, define and enforce policies, and troubleshoot problems. The new version reduces complexity by easing the management of environments with large numbers of virtual server instances through detailed reports about storage capacity associated with virtual hosts. It also features new management tools that help IT staff better utilize existing physical storage assets through simplified storage virtualization.

CA Vantage SRM r12 SP2 automates major storage management operations, including critical monitoring and analysis tasks and corrective actions across the IBM® z/OS® storage environment. It helps enable continuous job processing by predicting and preventing out-of-storage conditions. New audit functions enable IT staff to quickly pinpoint data sets that are not being backed up in accordance with corporate policies, which helps improve data protection and adherence to internal storage requirements.
