FUGITSU TO IMPROVE DATA MIGARATION SERVICES FOR HP STORAGE.

Fujitsu Softek, Sunnyvale, Calif., has announced that its Softek TDMF Open Systems and Mainframe Edition data replication and migration software will be used to assist Hewlett-Packard Company 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. 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 hard ware manufacturer.

TDMF Open Systems Edition, launched in June of last 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.

"Fujitsu Softek's mission is to offer products that simplify and optimize storage environments," said Flynn. "TDMF plays an important part in this strategy by providing a cost-effective solution that allows data to move easily and confidently from one hardware platform to another without the traditional business interruptions. Our products help companies such as HP provide services and support to a heterogeneous mix of storage environments."

According to Gill Rickards, general manager of HP Worldwide Storage Support Services, enterprise customers increasingly face the challenge of managing massive amounts of data within multi-vendor storage environments.

"Services play a key role in HP's Federated Storage Area Management strategy by allowing customers to optimize their current storage infrastructure when integrating and migrating data. This expanded offering takes advantage of HP's expertise in designing, integrating, managing and maintaining enterprise storage systems and Fujitsu Softek's expertise in data migration software. Using Softek TDMF software, HP has taken another step forward to offering our customers open networked storage solutions."
