CA has announced four new solutions, and a comprehensive initiative to help service providers (SPs) rapidly design and deliver new, high-margin cloud service offerings.

The company released CA AppLogic 3.0 that is generally available.

The CA AppLogic 3.0 turnkey cloud platform, offers an application-centric approach to deliver infrastructure, tools, applications and virtual data centers in the cloud. SPs can use the CA AppLogic platform to add new revenue-driving services—independent of hypervisor technology.

CA AppLogic software supports multiple hypervisors in the same grid, including VMware, ESX and Xen. This enables SPs to address more customers and architectures, and allows enterprises to protect their investments in VMware. The company has added new features such as Global Fabric Controller that adds detection and inventory functions to simplify installation; Open Virtualization Format (OVF): enables SPs to import workloads from VMware or Xen with a standards-based interchange format to deliver new services and leverage existing investments; Role-based Access Controls and International language support (available in English, French, German, Spanish and Chinese).

Besides the company also released a new set of automation, assurance and service management solutions for service providers. For instance, the CA Automation Suite for Clouds 1.0 supports heterogeneous infrastructure including Cisco UCS, VCE Vblock infrastructure platforms, NetApp, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, IBM LPARs and more. It offers an online catalog of applications, and integrated, cloud-enabling capabilities include a self-service portal, on-demand provisioning, resource and workload management, service metering and billing, and role-based security.

The CA NetQoS Unified Communications Monitor 3.2 supports medianet-enabled Cisco devices, which helps organizations to address and manage the ‘consumerization of IT’ and the rapidly growing use of video in the enterprise.

Based on the further development of the CA Oblicore Guarantee, the CA Business Service Insight 8.0 helps SPs to manage their SLAs.

CA also unveiled its CA Cloud Market Accelerator Program for SPs, offering them partners tools and resources for co-marketing, sales enablement and collaboration.

“We’re committed to helping service providers unlock the full potential of cloud-based solutions for their customers,” said Anna Gong, Vice President, Cloud, Virtualization and Service Automation, Asia Pacific, CA Technologies. “While other cloud computing approaches require building costly ‘cloud stacks’ with multiple products, layers and prohibitive pricing models, our unique approach frees service providers from vendor lock-in, and helps them improve margins, simplify the delivery of new services and provide a broad set of choices to help target specific markets with differentiated cloud services. We’re continuing to expand our ecosystem of cloud partners and solutions—which is a big benefit for SPs and enterprises alike.”
