Ciena ONLINE Metro Qualified by IBM

Ciena's Metro Multiservice DWDM Platform has completed interoperability testing and qualification for IBM GDPS eServer zSeries mainframe environments.

IBM's GDPS computing environment provides a set of disaster recovery and continuous availability solutions ideal for large multi-site enterprises. The combination of IBM's GDPS technology with Ciena's metro optical DWDM systems connects local storage and server networks that are separated by distances of up to 300 kilometers for high-availability business continuity and disaster recovery applications.

Ciena's GDPS-certified solution has already been selected by a $60 billion life insurance company to enable the connection of data centers across 100 kilometers of fiber for the transport of GDPS and other data center applications.
