CA Technologies has formed an alliance with the Virtual Computing Environment Co. to develop integrated private cloud offerings.

The alliance will initially focus on developing virtual desktop infrastructure and management tools for the migration of enterprise applications onto Virtual Computing Environment Co’s Vblock cloud infrastructure platform. Virtual Computing Environment (VCE) is a company formed by Cisco and EMC, with investments from VMware and Intel, to develop cloud-based computing models.

“We expect our alliance with VCE to be an important part of our continued focus to help customers use and provide cloud-based services that transform IT for agility, efficiency and business innovation,” Dave Hansen, general manger of enterprise solutions and cloud management for CA, said in a statement.

The companies said they plan to certify a broad portfolio of CA offerings, in such areas as service management, service assurance, service automation, virtualization management, capacity management, and security, for use on the Vblock platform.

The application migration offering is aimed at helping CIOs address the challenge of how to modernize application architectures and migrate to next-generation virtualized and cloud infrastructures. The migration offering will be based on capabilities obtained in CA’s recent acquisition of Hyperformix, a server virtualization capacity management vendor, acquired in September of 2010.

Both the application migration and virtual desktop infrastructure offerings are targeted for availability in June 2011.
