Some of the IntelliMagic products were originally developed many years ago. Since their first incarnation these products have changed very significantly and in the early 2010s the product line has been renamed. Please refer to the table below for the original product names versus the current products:

Original Product  Current Product 
 Disk Magic  IntelliMagic Direction
 RMF Magic  IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS
 Batch Magic  IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS Virtual Tape

IBM still licenses the original products in support of their storage sales process.

For IBM and IBM Business partners, any questions or issues with the Disk Magic, Capacity Magic, RMF Magic or Batch Magic products should be directed to IBM’s MagicToolsHelp e-mail address: magicth@us.ibm.com.

Disk Magic / IntelliMagic Direction

IntelliMagic Direction is the successor of the original Disk Magic software product.

IBM has licensed Disk Magic from IntelliMagic since 1994. It is licensed for use by IBM and IBM business partners to size and sell IBM Disk Storage.

The product version that IBM licenses is still called Disk Magic and is limited to performance modeling for IBM storage systems. The end-user product IntelliMagic Direction supports many other disk storage systems including those from IBM, HP, HDS and EMC.

For IBM and IBM Business Partners that would like to recommend the end-user version to their customers, please contact sales@intellimagic.com.

RMF Magic / IntelliMagic Vision

IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS is the successor of the original RMF Magic software product.

IBM has licensed RMF Magic from IntelliMagic since 2003. It is licensed solely for z/OS replication sizing studies done by IBMers. IBM Business Partners cannot use RMF Magic.

The end-user product IntelliMagic Vision has diverged significantly in terms of functionality and applications from the original RMF Magic that IBM licenses.

For IBMers that would like to recommend IntelliMagic Vision to their customers or business partners, please contact sales@intellimagic.com.

Batch Magic / IntelliMagic Vision

IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS Virtual Tape is the successor of the original Batch Magic software product.

Batch Magic is licensed by IBM for use by IBMers and IBM BPs to size TS7700 configurations for their customers. In 2014 the end-user version of Batch Magic was replaced with IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS Tape, which has a different and larger feature set.

For IBM and IBM BPs wanting to recommend IntelliMagic Vision for z/OS Tape to their customers, please contact sales@intellimagic.com.
