Phoenix Software International Announces Support for IBM's Sub‑Capacity Pricing Structure

LOS ANGELES - (October 26, 2001) Phoenix Software International, a major systems software development company, today announced sub-capacity pricing for its (E)JES customers. The latest release of (E)JES (V3R4), a tool for managing z/OS JES3 systems, takes advantage of IBM’s Virtual Server interface for customers running z/OS on a zSeries processor. This new development allows customers to license only the partitions of their zSeries system currently in use, enabling them to increase capacity according to their growth needs.

"Our customers have wanted something like this for a long time," said Edward Jaffe, Manager of Research and Development. "As CPUs get larger, it becomes increasingly difficult for them to incrementally expand their data processing capabilities. (E)JES customers who take advantage of sub-capacity licensing will be able to expand as their needs dictate."

"As a long-time IBM business partner, Phoenix Software International is committed to continuing its efforts to fully leverage the features of zSeries architecture and z/OS, bringing customers the solutions they seek to their growing business challenges." said Fred Hoschett, President.
