Question: 

Does CA Dynam/T r7.1 for z/VSE support the EMC MDL ( Mainframe Data Library ) ?

 

Answer: 

Yes.

The Mainframe Data Library (MDL) is a family of high-performance virtual tape controllers that use EMC storage platforms to store and retrieve data. 

Each model produces a scalable solution that reduces mainframe tape risks and costs while protecting customers' investments in tape applications.

The MDL 1000 and 2000 attach to zSeries mainframe FICON/ESCON channels and use standard Gigabit Ethernet IP/Fibre Channel to attach to storage arrays.
