CA enhances optical management software

Computer Associates last month released the 2.0 version of its File Jockey software for accessing and managing optical jukeboxes. Supported technologies include magneto-optical (MO), phase-change and write once read many (WORM) optical devices, and Intel or Alpha-based servers running Windows NT 4.0. The software makes jukeboxes appear to administrators as a single drive. File Jockey is part of CA`s ARCserve family of storage management software packages.

File Jockey also supports media replication, allowing users to make sector-by-sector mirrored copies from source media to target media. Advantage: protection against media and/or drive failures.

Pricing for File Jockey 2.0 starts at $3,995. Upgrades are available for $995.
