    Dear Community,

    We are excited to share with you the great news that we have finished CA Disk Backup and Archive Version 14.0 and we are moving to the validation stage.

    Version 14.0 provides new capability for managing zFS single file for backup, archive, restore, move and copy.  It also contains PDSE version 2 native support for all functions and fully supports DFSMS Release space, releasing unused space on all volumes for more efficient storage usage. 

    Your participation offers you the ability to validate the new capabilities and provide your feedback directly to the development team.  As a participant in the validation program, you will communicate directly with the product development team to investigate and address any reported problems and to provide your thoughts on the new capability. 

    Do you want to be a part of the early testing and have a direct influence on the future shape and development of this release? This is exactly the right time and place to be!
