Bus-Tech, Inc. Completes Testing Under The IBM System Storage Proven(TM) Program

Bus-Tech, Inc., a leading provider of Virtual Tape solutions for attachment to IBM mainframes, today announces that the Mainframe Data Library (MDL), Mainframe Appliance for Storage (MAS) and zDASD products have successfully completed interoperability testing with IBM’s System Storage N series, DS4000, DS3000 and SAN Volume Controller (SVC) products and has been confirmed as IBM System Storage Proven. The IBM System Storage Proven program builds on IBM’s already extensive interoperability efforts to develop and deliver products and solutions that work together with third party products.

"Comprehensive testing for IBM System Storage Proven, along with IBM Server Proven with System z, provides customers with assurance of smooth integration with IBM System Storage Disk products as well as integration into the IBM mainframe environment," stated Bus-Tech President, Al Brandt.

Bus-Tech’s MDL, MAS and zDASD products provide flexible, cost-effective storage solutions for the mainframe that use cost-effective Open Systems disk storage. Bus-Tech’s Virtual Tape solutions enable SME and large enterprise customers to reduce costs, complexity and risks, and improve response times by eliminating tape robotics and media from their mainframe tape environments.

The IBM System Storage Proven program supports the ability of independent hardware and software vendors to build high-quality solutions with the latest technology on leading storage platforms as well as reduce solution design time when multiple, tested building blocks have already been pre-tested.
