CA Technologies and Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, are extending their strategic relationship in the US to offer customers greater flexibility and choice for their enterprise-class cloud computing strategies.

As a Premier Service Provider partner, Logicalis offers a range of CA Technologies products to its end customers, including Nimsoft to deliver monitoring-as-a-service to its managed services customers. With the extension of this partnership, Logicalis’ customers can now select CA Automation Suite for Clouds from Logicalis’ cloud aggregation toolbox.

“Business services are the lifeblood of the enterprise, and fast delivery of quality services translates into increased productivity and competitiveness,” said Roger Pilc, GM of Industries, Solutions and Alliances at CA Technologies. “Logicalis has a strong history of working with its customers to respond to changing business demands. By offering automated cloud service delivery with CA Automation Suite for Clouds, customers become even more agile, sourcing and deploying new services quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively.”

As enterprises come to rely on a wide variety of cloud services provided by many different vendors and running on different environments, management of those resources can become a challenge. Cloud automation helps IT professionals address this problem directly by aggregating management of all kinds of cloud services—regardless of where the cloud resides, how it was built or which vendor provided the underlying software or hardware. With this approach, IT can shift its focus from maintenance to innovation, becoming the valued broker of cloud services driving business productivity gains.

“At Logicalis, we take a consultative approach to creating cloud solutions, tailoring those solutions to each individual customer’s specific business and IT strategy. That often means managing a heterogeneous cloud environment with a host of third-party services, something that, without the right automation tools, can be a significant challenge,” said Mike Martin, VP of Cloud Solutions for Logicalis.

“At Logicalis, we’re both a customer and a provider of CA Automation Suite for Clouds. We rely on CA Technologies solutions in our own managed services and hosted cloud offerings that extend to hundreds of customers nationwide. And for clients that need to manage their own private or hybrid cloud solutions, CA Automation Suite for Clouds offers a solid choice for managing both physical and virtual resources. We are proud to have extended our relationship with CA Technologies to be able to offer our clients access to this important toolset.”

Organizations can help protect existing technology investments and avoid vendor lock-in with the open, modular and scalable fabric-based architecture of CA Automation Suite for Clouds that supports legacy environments, converged infrastructure, virtual fabrics and multiple hypervisors. CA Automation Suite for Clouds can also help customer to accelerate time-to-market for new services and reduce the cost and complexity of delivering hybrid clouds with its pre-integrated and extensible framework and automated provisioning capabilities.
