New Branding for Products?

    ​We are seeing names for our licensed product now with the addition of MIPS in the name. 

    For example: 

    CA Fast Load for DB2 for Z/OS MIPS. 

    We use to see CA Fast Load for DB2 for MVS.

    What is this?

    In Chorus Software Manager and in the CA Support Portal Product download site.  Under Solutions.

     

    It appears to be related to our going to a licensing agreement for Capacity on Demand with IBM on our processor.  We had to let all of other vendors know and agree to it.  The MIPS designation is for the Capacity on Demand feature.  It does tie back to the same underlying product.

     

    We have had an issue with downloading the latest maintenance with Chorus MSM, but I have been working with Lisle support to debug it.  If you want more info you can check with James Ellis.  He created the issue and can give you more "sausage making" details from your side.

     

    Thanks for following up.
