H-P Opens with Fujitsu SoftekFujitsu Softek today announced that its Softek TDMF Open Systems and Mainframe Edition data replication and migration software will be used to assist Hewlett-Packard Co. customers in migrating their business-critical data -- outage-free -- onto new HP storage systems.
The worldwide licensing agreement calls for Fujitsu Softek to provide software and training to HP's services professionals, in preparation for a global rollout to assist HP customers.
Softek TDMF Mainframe Edition is the de facto standard for software migration and replication in the mainframe space with approximately one half the Global 1000 as customers, officials said. The software ensures that an organization's business-critical applications experience absolutely no interruption when data is being migrated or replicated. It is completely transparent to end-users, operating in any mainframe-compatible environment, regardless of the storage hardware manufacturer.
TDMF Open Systems Edition, launched in June of this year, extends these market-leading capabilities into the Open Systems market, providing enterprise replication and migration support to HP-UX and Solaris environments. This expanded offering allows HP to help its storage customers worldwide with the replication and migration of large amounts of data across storage platforms, all while experiencing little or no system downtime.
Erich Flynn, Fujitsu Softek Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, called the new agreement significant in that it will allow HP to offer customers a highly available, reliable method to migrate or replicate data across a variety of operating systems and storage platforms across the enterprise.
