The new application simplifies middleware and application provisioning in dynamic environments
CA Technologies has released its Automation Suite for Data Centers that claims to enable enterprises and service providers to create business services in an automated, repeatable and reliable manner.
With CA Automation Suite for Data Centers, customers can share and provision multi-system business services across different platforms and locations with just a few clicks and can also simplify middleware and application provisioning in dynamic environments.
In addition, customers can also model multi-tiered applications, including their underlying infrastructure and deploy services on VMware vSphere and CA AppLogic grids as a single logical entity.
CA Technologies Enterprise Management general manager Mike Sargent said: "In the fluid world of virtualization and cloud computing, CA Automation Suite for Data Centers’ ability to rapidly provision an entire end-to-end IT service helps IT teams accelerate the time-to-bottom-line-impact of their innovative services."
Raymond James Platforms senior manager Lisa Huston said CA Automation Suite for Data Centers’ ability to deploy multiple components of an application, such as Microsoft SharePoint, the underlying operating system and required IT infrastructure onto one or more systems in a single end user step will save its IT staff from having to implement one-off processes by building custom workflows and scripts.
"This capability linked to the integrated self-service reservation management system, as well as the built-in support for our storage and hypervisor environments, such as VMware and Citrix, will enable our users to reserve and provision the full application stack and resources they need in just a few clicks," Huston said.
