CA Technologies announced a definitive agreement to buy Hyperformix, a provider of capacity management software for dynamic physical, virtual, and cloud IT infrastructures.

Capacity management enables users to discover how physical, virtual, hardware, software, storage, and network resources are being used, and to determine what resources will be needed in the future. The technology also helps optimize the deployment of those resources to meet business objectives.

Specifically, the combination of CA Technologies and Hyperformix is expected to help organizations:

• Overcome challenges such as VM Sprawl (uncontrolled VM deployments) and VM Stall (the inability to move beyond initial virtualization of 20-30 percent of servers).

• Ensure application performance and service level agreements.

• Deliver cost, agility and availability benefits to the business through faster and more reliable data center consolidations, virtualization rollouts, platform refreshes and application migrations.

The transaction is expected to close within CA Technologies third fiscal quarter, which ends December 31, 2010. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Hyperformix operations and employees will become part of the Virtualization and Automation business at CA Technologies. CA Technologies intends to expand its integrations with Hyperformix solutions to include the CA Virtual, CA Service Automation, CA Service Assurance and CA Cloud portfolios.
