CA Technologies Integrates CA Process Automation and VMware vCloud Director
Technology Integration Helps Customers Enhance Service Delivery and Lower Costs by Automating Processes Across Physical and Virtual Resources
COPENHAGEN (VMworld) and ISLANDIA, N.Y. – October 19, 2011 - CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced a connector for integrating CA Process Automation, a central component of both CA Automation Suite for Data Centers and CA Automation Suite for Clouds, with VMware vCloud® Director™. The new capability enables more efficient service delivery and helps to lower costs by automating and orchestrating IT operational processes, such as change, configuration, and financial management, involving VMware vCloud Director.
Enterprises and service providers can enhance the performance of their VMware private and public clouds by using the connector to automate and orchestrate VMware vCloud Director-based processes with CA Technologies service automation, capacity management and service management solutions such as CA Automation Suite for Clouds, CA Automation Suite for Data Centers, CA Capacity Manager, CA Service Catalog, CA Service Accounting, CA Service Desk Manager and CA CMDB.
“One of the best ways for VMware customers to increase ROI and avoid creating new technology islands is to integrate their VMware infrastructure investment into their IT service management and other processes using CA Process Automation,” said Roger Pilc, general manager, Virtualization and Automation, CA Technologies. “Taking advantage of our many management solutions via the integration of CA Process Automation and vCloud Director enables customers to achieve automated processes across their data centers and cloud infrastructures, and a common, integrated service view, regardless of whether workloads or business services reside on virtual and physical infrastructure. The connector also helps customers gain end-to-end service control, lowering the risk of human error and improving service delivery efficiency.”
The connector further extends the rapidly growing library of content available via CA Catalyst, the integration and application platform that implements the company’s Unified Service Model and enables the delivery of reliable, supportable IT management solutions. It utilizes CA Process Automation as the single interface to design, deploy and administer IT processes, and integrates with the VMware vCloud Director API, an interface for providing and consuming virtual resources in the cloud.
The connector for integrating CA Process Automation and VMware vCloud Director is expected to be available from CA Technologies and its channel partners by the end of the month.
CA Technologies will be demonstrating this and other solutions at VMworld® Europe (booth #93, October 18-20) in Copenhagen, Denmark.
