CA Southern Africa has announced that 25 of CA Technologies’ software offerings are now certified by VCE to run on Vblock Systems, demonstrating the company’s ongoing commitment to supporting converged infrastructure platforms.
The 13 new certified offerings include several security products, as well as additional unified automation, service assurance and virtualisation products, joining the list of 12 certified offerings announced earlier this year.
CA Technologies Vblock Ready offerings allow customers to accelerate private cloud deployments and time to market for new business services while containing costs. Customers can also reduce risk by opting for fully tested and integrated CA Technologies offerings with official certification from VCE.
“As organisations move to the cloud at a rapid clip, converged infrastructure options, such as VCE’s Vblock Systems, can significantly reduce time to deploy and time to value,” says Andrea Lodolo, chief technology officer at CA Southern Africa.
“Our customers want to deliver a better bottom-line value to their businesses and, to do so, need to manage, monitor, secure and automate their cloud deployments in order to realise the full benefits. We remain committed to making sure our offerings meet VCE’s stringent certification requirements, so that our customers can move from simply maintaining IT to focusing on driving innovation and increased business value.”
“CA Technologies is providing customers with broad and comprehensive support for Vblock Systems,” says Todd Pavone, executive VP, VCE.
“Our extensive work with partners like CA Technologies is resulting in a broad ecosystem of leading capabilities that have been pre-tested and enable fast, reliable deployment of enterprise cloud infrastructures.”
