Computer Associates quickly jumped on the back of IBM’s latest mainframe monster yesterday, pledging software support for the System z9.

The management software vendor claimed it would offer “comprehensive support” across its mainframe software lines for Big Blue’s just released behemoth. This would include the delivery of on-demand services.

The 38 processor z9 will hit the market in September. A 54 processor beast, touting 512GB of memory, will follow in November
