Sometimes it Pays to Solve Hard Problems: CA Acquires 3Tera

As ReadWriteWeb’s Richard MacManusreported in 2006, 3Tera is a company to watch: “3Tera strikes me as a company to keep an eye on – they’re tackling a complex problem and they have a lot of potential customers out there.”

CA must agree. The companies have entered into a definitive agreement for CA to purchase 3Tera, adding it to CA’s growing list of cloud acquisitions.

Simplifying Deployment

3Tera’s focus is simplifying the deployment of environments. The tools also helps synchronize capabilities between cloud providers and so-called “private clouds” hosted inside a company’s data center.

The company has a GUI based application to help visualize, manage, and deploy solutions in the cloud. This is an important thing to solve, especially if time is of the essence in getting your cloud-based application supported by your IT team, and keeping your choices open after it is deployed.

The Cloud is Mainstream

As self-reported by the 3Tera team in their blog, this acquisition represented cloud computing becoming mainstream in IT. CA sees a need to fill in this piece in their portfolio and IT leaders are asking for tools to deploy and manage cloud infrastructure assets.

“We started 3Tera to radically ease the way IT deploys, maintains and scales – MANAGES – applications. Our AppLogic® cloud computing platform provides the foundation of our partners’ orchestration of cloud services for public and private clouds around the world. Today, we’re taking the next step in moving toward making cloud computing mainstream by joining CA.”

It looks like cloud computing is becoming essential to the enterprise. Is it in yours?
