Enterprise customers rely on CA Technologies solutions—including CA Automation Suite for Clouds, CA Application Performance Management, CA Nimsoft Cloud Monitor and CA ARCserve®—to manage, monitor and protect applications and services running on AWS.
At the AWS re: Invent customer and partner conference in Las Vegas, CA Technologies unveiled robust solutions developed on AWS within CA Automation Suite for Clouds. With this new integration, customers can streamline and govern the provisioning of AWS services, allowing them to rapidly move workloads to the cloud. This enables customers to realize even faster time to value for cloud deployments and greater agility as their resource needs change.
“While enterprises are moving computing resources to third-party cloud service providers to give them increased flexibility, scalability and responsiveness in meeting rapidly changing business demands; CIOs have been slower to consider cloud environments for their business-critical applications because of perceived concerns about the ability to manage or govern those resources,” said Roger Pilc, general manager, Industries, Solutions & Alliances, CA Technologies. “With our offerings developed on AWS, we’re helping to remove some of those barriers, giving enterprises the management, monitoring and governance capabilities they are accustomed to using in their on-premise systems and cloud environments.”
“As we work closely with our enterprise customers, we understand that they are looking for a wide range of options to manage and govern their applications, services and resources on AWS,” said Terry Wise, Head of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services. “Many enterprise customers already use CA Technologies solutions on premise, and by enabling these customers to extend these capabilities to AWS, enterprises are able to deploy critical workloads in the cloud while maintaining similar operational and governance frameworks that they do on premise.”
Additional features of CA Automation Suite for Clouds Powered by Amazon Web Services include:
• Enterprise Lifecycle Management of AWS Services
o Pre-designed workflows and approvals for automated self-service delivery of infrastructure and application services within the AWS Cloud
• Governance and Administration
o Configurable processes to allow finance, compliance and configuration management for customers to establish approval and audit trails
• Holistic Portfolio Support
o Application performance management to deliver quality of experience for critical business services
o Data management for recovery and availability of data
“CA Technologies has a strong set of enterprise-level capabilities that we can use to take advantage of the AWS Cloud when our customers need to quickly deploy important work loads,” said Darren House, technologist, GTSI Corp. “The self-service capability will reduce the burden for our customers, allowing them to focus on strategic initiatives and on driving innovation, while maintaining governance processes for compliance and audits.
