CA Technologies announced plans to support IBM's new zEnterprise 114 entry-level mainframe with CA management and utilities software.

CA Technologies has announced its support for IBM's new zEnterprise Technology, including the new zEnterprise 114.

By integrating its IT management solutions with zEnterprise, CA Technologies helps customers lower the total cost of ownership in mainframe, distributed and cloud environments, the company said

"CA Technologies and IBM continue to work together to deliver innovations that strengthen the value proposition for customers by helping to improve operational efficiencies," Dayton Semerjian, general manager of mainframe technology at CA, said in a statement. "Our cross-enterprise management capabilities, combined with the performance of the newly announced IBM zEnterprise 114 and the associated hybrid and cloud-computing benefits of The IBM zEnterprise System and the zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX), help them to achieve their IT goals."

CA Technologies will support IBM zEnterprise technology by providing management capabilities for z/OS, Linux on z and cloud applications, and extending the reduction in cost and complexity, and optimizing the performance that the CA VM:Manager Suite for Linux on System z offers in z/VM for Linux environments, the company said.

CA also will leverage IBM's new APIs across CA's portfolio of mainframe and distributed management products to help enable the seamless management of customer workloads across their enterprise. And CA will add management capabilities that complement zBX's integrated IBM Smart Analytic Optimizer, and developing solutions to support IBM Power7 Blades and the IBM DataPower XI50z workload-optimized appliance in this hybrid environment, the company said.

"CA Technologies' ongoing investments in support of the System z mainframe environment demonstrate their continued commitment to this important ecosystem," said Doris Conti, director, IBM System z. "We will continue to work together to support our common goals for our mutual customers."
