CA Technologies Partners with VCE for Private Cloud Adoption

CA Technologies and VCE, the Virtual Computing Environment Company, have announced a global strategic alliance to deliver integrated private cloud solutions for VCE’s Vblock Infrastructure Platforms that help customers increase agility, reduce risk and lower costs. Initially, the alliance will focus on Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) deployment and management, and migration of Tier 1, integral enterprise applications to the Vblock platform.





“We expect our alliance with VCE to be an important part of our continued focus to help customers use and provide cloud-based services that transform IT for agility, efficiency and business innovation”,  said Dave Hansen, general manager, Enterprise Solutions and Cloud Management, CA Technologies.





“Deploying the Vblock Platform with CA Technologies Vblock Ready solutions integrated with Vblock Unified Infrastructure Manager will help customers accelerate their ability to realize the benefits of an agile converged infrastructure, improving application performance while dramatically improving IT operational efficiency”, said Phil Harris, VP, Platform Engineering and Strategy, VCE.





The application migration capabilities CA Technologies delivers will help address one of the biggest challenges CIOs face today: how to modernize application architectures and platforms, and migrate them to next-generation virtualized and cloud infrastructures. Whether migrating from either distributed physical to virtual systems, or from departmental to converged infrastructures, the CA Technologies solutions, coupled with the Vblock platform, will help deliver repeatable, consistent results and predictable application performance. The planned application migration solution will be based on CA,  Capacity Management  capabilities from Hyperformix, a recent CA Technologies acquisition. Both offerings are targeted for availability in late June 2011.
