INNOVATION and IntelliMagic collaboration significantly lowers cost and
improves performance of IBM System z mainframe storage.
Little Falls, NJ, and Southlake, TX — August 2, 2010.
INNOVATION Data Processing and IntelliMagic are announcing today, at the 2010 SHARE
Conference in Boston MA, that their FDRPAS and IntelliMagic Balance products are now available
to customers, for a limited time, at a special discount package price.
“Most System z customers can increase the amount of work their existing mainframe
storage hardware systems can safely deliver by as much as 30%, by simply using
IntelliMagic Balance, in conjunction with INNOVATION's FDRPAS and FDRMOVE”, says
Dr. Gilbert Houtekamer, the author of the definitive work on the subject of
storage system efficiency. “Coming from someone, who together with Dr. Pat
Artis wrote the well know classic on ‘MVS I/O Subsystems’, and who has over
20 years of experience in I/O performance analysis, that is a declaration we
believe. It is also one of principle reasons we are collaborating with IntelliMagic
to offer System z mainframe sites who take up the IntelliMagic offer of a Free
assessment of their current storage efficiency and hardware reclamation potential,
a No-Obligation 20 volume Free Trial of FDRPAS and FDRMOVE” says INNOVATION
spokesman and Vice President, Advance Technology, Thomas J. Meehan.
Benefits this collaboration can provide include:
- Deferring expensive hardware purchases by safely extending the life of currently installed storage.
- Eliminating those disk storage hot spots, that can steal performance from your existing hardware.
- Moving volumes and files to new hardware in a layout that can maximize performance and longevity.
- Avoiding performance contention positioning during smaller to larger volume migrations.
- Intelligently implementing multiple storage tiers that reflect workload performance requirements.
- Identifying data that can benefit from Solid State Devices and efficiently moving it there.
“The key to achieving these benefits is knowing how to balance your workloads across the storage
hardware you've already paid for and moving it there with minimal disruption to your ongoing business
processing”, said IntelliMagic US spokesperson Brent Phillips, adding “IntelliMagic knows
how to create balance on mainframe storage better than anyone else. And INNOVATION Data knows how
to move data better than anyone else. Together we can make it surprisingly easy for System z users
to reduce risk and to realize very significant savings on hardware spending by maximizing
the I/O performance of their existing hardware. That's why we are currently working with
INNOVATION to have IntelliMagic Balance seamlessly create the FDRPAS and FDRMOVE
control statements necessary to ‘balance’your storage system.”
Take this opportunity to see for yourself how much IntelliMagic Balance and FDRPAS/FDRMOVE
can save you. Act now and request a No-Obligation, Free System z Disk Storage Performance
Capacity Improvement Package that will include a free detailed assessment of your current

New customers who order and purchase IntelliMagic Balance and INNOVATION Data
Processing FDRPAS/FDRMOVE together, during the remainder of 2010 will receive a package discount on the
individual IntelliMagic and INNOVATION products. Existing IntelliMagic Balance and
