CA set to buy Cloud build solutions provider 3Tera
Cloud computing solutions specialist 3Tera is to be acquired by CA for an as-yet undisclosed amount.
3Tera’s AppLogic product enables enterprises and service providers to provision, deploy, and scale, public and private cloud computing environments.
The deal with privately-owned 3Tera is the latest bag in CA’s Cloud acquisitions quest that includes Cassatt, NetQoS and Oblicore—CA continues to aggressively expand its portfolio of solutions to manage cloud computing as part of an integrated information technology management program.
“CIOs can use Cloud computing to build and manage a new type of IT ‘supply chain’ across today’s virtualized internal and external technology infrastructure,” says executive vice president of CA’s cloud products & solutions business line Chris O’Malley. “By streamlining Cloud-based deployment of composite applications, 3Tera adds new capabilities alongside CA’s existing virtual and physical infrastructure management functionality—including that provided by CA Spectrum Automation Manager, and the CA Service Assurance line of products.”
CA intends to integrate AppLogic with these and other technologies to provide customers with a broad set of tools for delivering, managing, and optimising Cloud computing as part of overall enterprise IT environment, O’Malley says. CA also plans to extend support of 3Tera, which operates on the Xen virtualisation platform, to include both VMware ESX and Microsoft Hyper-V.
