CA launches BrightStor SAN solution

Computer Associates International Inc. (CA) released its latest Brightstor storage area network (SAN) solution Tuesday, an offering the Islandia, N.Y. company said is designed to tackle multi-vendor SAN environments.

The enterprise solution, dubbed Brightstor SAN Manager, can be integrated with other CA products – including BrightStor Storage Resource Manager and BrightStor Portal – and uses a single point of control GUI to monitor, manage and troubleshoot heterogeneous SAN environments, CA said.

The solution will support competing storage vendor devices including Brocade, IBM, Hewlett-Packard and EMC, the company said, adding that it incorporates policy-based automation to lessen enterprise storage failures.

BrightStor SAN Manager also can be integrated with Unicenter infrastructure management solutions, CA said – IT departments can link BrightStor SAN Manager to Unicenter Service Level Management, thereby incorporating their SANs into end-to-end infrastructure service level agreements.
