CA Technologies announced new cloud management and governance capabilities developed on Amazon Web Services within CA’s Automation Suite for Clouds. With the new capabilities, CA says, organizations can streamline and govern the provisioning of AWS services, allowing them to rapidly move workloads to the cloud.
“While enterprises are moving computing resources to third-party cloud service providers to give them increased flexibility, scalability and responsiveness in meeting rapidly changing business demands, CIOs have been slower to consider cloud environments for their business-critical applications because of perceived concerns about the ability to manage or govern those resources,” Roger Pilc, general manager of Industries, Solutions & Alliances at CA Technologies, said in a statement.
With the new offerings developed on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure web services platform, “we’re helping to remove some of those barriers, giving enterprises the management, monitoring and governance capabilities they are accustomed to using in their on-premise systems and cloud environments,” Pilc said.
New features of CA Automation Suite for Clouds Powered by Amazon Web Services include pre-designed workflows and approvals for automated self-service delivery of infrastructure and application services within the AWS Cloud; configurable processes to allow finance, compliance and configuration management for customers to establish approval and audit trails; application performance management to provide higher quality user experience with business services; and data management for recovery and availability of data.
