by CXOtoday Staff    Feb 25, 2010

CA is set to acquire privately-held 3Tera, Inc., a cloud computing solution provider. This move follows CA’s recent acquisitions of Cassatt, NetQoS and Oblicore-indicating that CA continues to aggressively expand its portfolio of solutions to manage cloud computing as part of an integrated information technology management program.

3Tera’s AppLogic offers solution for building cloud services and deploying complex enterprise-class applications to public and private clouds using an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI). Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The company enables enterprises and service providers to provision, deploy and scale public and private cloud computing environments while maintaining full control, flexibility and reliability.

3Tera also makes it easy for service providers to offer application stacks on demand by adding applications to the AppLogic catalog, where they can be deployed to a low-cost, shared cloud infrastructure. 3Tera’s customers include more than 80 enterprises and service providers globally, which use the cloud computing technology to provide services to thousands of users.

"CIOs can use cloud computing to build and manage a new type of IT ’supply chain’ across today’s virtualized internal and external technology infrastructure," said Chris O’Malley, executive vice president of CA’s Cloud Products & Solutions Business Line. "3Tera technology is a powerful addition to the total solution CA provides for optimizing these high-value supply chains-from the mainframe to the cloud."
