Question:
What is the difference between
CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager MVS
CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager Client Acc MIPS MVS
CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager Client Access Option MVS
CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager MIPS MVS
 
Answer:
Both CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager MVS and CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager MIPS MVS are actually the same product. The reason they are differentiated like that is back in the 2000's we attempted to provide different pricing schemes for customers which required a different id.

CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager Client Acc MIPS MVS” and “CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager Client Access Option MVS is to allow the Windows Client to be sold in 4 limited instances. If a client needed more they would need more licencing through these. But that is not how we sell it in the US. You can have unlimited Windows Client instances as long as you have the Base Host Component.
