CA Technologies Named Value Leader in Private Cloud Platforms by Leading Analyst Firm

Company Awarded ‘Most Innovative Architecture’ for its Ability to Flexibly Provision Business Services


WEBWIRE – Tuesday, March 26, 2013

ISLANDIA, N.Y. – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that it was named a Value Leader by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) in the EMA Radar™ for Private Cloud Platforms (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS): Q1 2013*. The company was recognized for offering comprehensive, application-aware private cloud platforms, CA Automation Suite for Clouds and CA AppLogic®, as well as integrated cloud capacity planning and management capabilities via CA Capacity Management.

This Radar report analyzes the marketplace for private cloud technologies from a customer perspective. EMA reviewed and empirically compared 13 private cloud vendors with a sizeable number of production deployments. Each vendor was ranked in terms of “Solution Impact” which focused on features, architecture and integration, as well as “Resource Efficiency” which included time, effort and cost.

“CA Automation Suite for Clouds convincingly ties together CA Technologies core strengths – server, network and storage automation, service management, and capacity planning – into a flexible and extensible private cloud platform,” said Torsten Volk, senior analyst, EMA. “Large CA Technologies customers confirmed the company’s status as a Value Leader, as the solution offers the flexibility and extensibility required for even the largest and most complex cloud deployments.”

CA Automation Suite for Clouds offers the software tools necessary to deploy entire business services via CA Server Automation, CA AppLogic, and multiple public clouds, including Amazon EC2 and Windows Azure.

CA AppLogic constitutes CA Technologies cloud platform, which is able to rapidly create, deploy and decommission complex business services. Unlike all other cloud solutions in this field, CA AppLogic entirely abstracts application environments from the underlying hardware, making these applications fully portable and disposable.

Due to the ability of CA Technologies solutions to flexibly provision business services to standard servers (CA Server Automation), the CA AppLogic Cloud Grid or the public cloud, EMA awarded the company “Most Innovative Architecture”.

“EMA’s recognition of our cloud platforms is testament to their ability to help customers gain competitive advantage by rapidly delivering services in response to changing business needs,” said John Michelsen, Chief Technology Officer, CA Technologies. “We are pleased that ‘flexibility’, ‘ease of deployment’, and ‘overall breadth of functionality’ were the key reasons mentioned by customers for selecting CA Automation Suite for Clouds and CA AppLogic.”
