Mainframe Storage Moving Into The Cloud

CA Technologies recently announced that it will be partnering with Microsoft to offer a cloud data storage solution for System z mainframes. The new service is the first of what CA said will be a line of cloud software for mainframe environments.

The new service is focused on providing cloud based storage for mainframe environments. The aim of the project is to give businesses more flexibility to meet the dynamic needs of storage capacity. Customers will be able to acquire just the right amount of capacity they need. This will hopefully help them to avoid spending too much for storage that they don’t use or gain additional capacity in incremental levels.

CA is unveiling the new service at the CA World conference in Las Vegas.
