To Quickly and Confidently Deploy New Mainframe Technology



Apr 01, 2002, 00:00 ET from Computer Associates International, Inc.

    ISLANDIA, N.Y., April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Computer Associates
 International, Inc. (CA) today announced first-day support for IBM z/OS.e, a
 specially priced operating system for IBM's new eServer zSeries 800 hardware,
 designed specifically to handle eBusiness workloads.  At the same time, CA
 announced first-day support for IBM z/OS Version 1 Release 3, the latest
 upgrade of IBM's flagship operating system for eServer zSeries.  The CA
 announcements coincide with IBM's release of the generally available versions
 of z/OS.e and z/OS 1.3, as well as the availability of the new zSeries
 800 "entry-level" servers.
     The immediate availability of CA's industry-leading management solutions
 for IBM's new enterprise platforms will enable customers to quickly and
 confidently move forward with their migration initiatives.
     In addition to z/OS.e and z/OS, CA solutions support the other operating
 systems available for the new IBM zSeries 800 machines: Linux, OS/390, z/VM,
 VM/ESA, and VSE/ESA.
     "CA is strongly committed to the future of the mainframe and its expanding
 role in eBusiness, which is clearly in keeping with IBM's vision as reflected
 in these most recent product introductions," said Nancy Newfield, CA's vice
 president of product marketing, mainframe solutions.  "CA's first-day support
 for z/OS.e, z/OS 1.3, and the z800 servers demonstrates that customers can
 depend on CA for the management technology they need to ensure the cost-
 efficiency, reliability and security of their continually evolving systems
 environments."
     The new IBM eServer z800 is a lower-priced server intended to bring the
 performance and reliability of IBM's zSeries mainframe technology to a broader
 range of potential customers.  The z/OS.e operating system is designed for
 running new eBusiness workloads at a very attractive price.
     IBM is offering a Linux-only version of the z800 to help customers
 consolidate multiple servers on a single machine in order to reduce costs and
 simplify management.  In support of this strategy, CA announced the
 availability of 20 products which support Linux for zSeries mainframe
 environments at LinuxWorld in January - with more solutions slated for release
 in the near future.
     "IBM is continuing to expand the boundaries of mainframe technology to
 meet the performance and budgetary requirements of the expanding eBusiness
 marketplace," said Rich Lechner, vice president, sales and marketing, IBM
 eServer zSeries.  "Through our PartnerWorld for Developers program, we will
 continue to work closely with leading software companies such as Computer
 Associates to ensure the concurrent availability of third-party tools with our
 new operating environments for our mutual customers."
