CA Technologies and Unisys Corporation have extended their alliance to offer joint solutions that accelerate the path from virtualization to the cloud. The solutions will combine CA Technologies virtualization management, service automation, and service management products with Unisys’ virtualization and cloud advisory, planning, design and implementation services.

The first solution, available today in North America, is designed to help organizations overcome “virtual stall” – the complications that can arise from enterprise virtualization projects. This is a significant challenge for enterprises – both in their existing data centers and as they evolve their infrastructure toward cloud computing.

This joint solution also represents a major step in Unisys’ strategy to help enterprise customers implement cloud computing to extend their data-center capabilities while continuing to leverage existing IT investments.

When virtualizing IT environments on their way to the cloud, organizations often run into challenges after about 30 or 40 percent of deployment has taken place, due to factors such as added complexity, staffing requirements, service level agreement (SLA) management, and departmental politics. This “virtual stall” can significantly delay the realization of key benefits of virtualization such as infrastructure responsiveness and availability and cost reduction.

The joint CA Technologies-Unisys solution blends CA Technologies service catalog, process automation, self-service provisioning, configuration management, and charge back/accounting capabilities, with Unisys’ expert advisory, planning, design and implementation services. This combination of technology and services gives customers a better way to provision, control, secure, and optimize complex multivendor IT environments.

CA Technologies and Unisys plan to expand the range of solutions they offer to help customers create private, hybrid and public clouds by providing unified management of physical and virtual environments, along with automation that spans IT domains and critical IT service management processes.
