What is CA 1 Tape Management ?

CA 1 Tape Management (CA 1) is designed to simplify and unify the management and protection of z/OS tape data sets and volumes. It automates day-to-day z/OS tape management tasks to save your organization time and money. It enables a higher level of integrity for tape data while providing comprehensive protection against the inadvertent destruction of tape files. CA 1 helps you maintain data integrity, providing tools to continually check your data and prevent overwriting. To give you greater control, a Web-based Graphical Management Interface streams detailed tape volume information and provides a common platform for more efficient management practices.
