CA Technologies Flexes Its FlexPod Muscles

I'm proud to report that CA Automation Suite for Data Centers is now a validated FlexPodTM management solution.

I’m proud to report that CA Automation Suite for Data Centers is now a validated FlexPodTM management solution. You may be thinking, “so what?” Well, we think it’s kind of a big deal and here’s why.

First, only two other vendors have achieved this level of validation from NetApp and Cisco – the partners behind the FlexPod converged infrastructure offering – and CA Technologies is the first and only major IT management vendor to achieve it.

Second, the market for converged infrastructure solutions is growing by leaps and bounds, and FlexPod is a top choice for many companies. As enterprises turn to cloud computing to accelerate service delivery, increase overall agility and improve efficiencies, converged infrastructure options, such as FlexPod, help them centralize and simplify the management of IT resources, consolidate systems and lower costs. According to today’s announcement, 850 customers use FlexPod, representing more than 400% growth in less than a year.

Lastly, and most importantly, this validation gives our customers peace of mind when using CA Technologies solutions to help provision, orchestrate, automate and manage their FlexPod environment. To achieve this, CA Automation Suite for Data Centers has undergone rigorous testing in both NetApp’s and Cisco’s labs to ensure that it has met extensive integration requirements and delivers comprehensive, unified manageability of the entire FlexPod stack.

    This is a good case study. 2.3 sec’s off a login transaction is big.

    While the analysts were hyping DevOps, I posted the oversight of not including security as part of that discussion as you are highlighting here. Instead of just talking DevOps, it should be DOS (what’s old is new again :-) – DevOpsSec. As a previous AppDev person, it’s the app, who’s using it, why and where rather than the device and having the service available.

    As you rightly point, out Security should be baked into the solution.

    Nice Post and Timely!

      Thank you for your feedback Michele. Agreed – security cannot be overlooked. Appreciate your input!

    I love the idea of BYOID! This makes me choose if I am almost anonymous (with my Hotmail Nicname) or official with identity from an official organisation. My Identity Provider will attach identity with right level of LoA according to the need of the Service provider.

      Thank you for your comment. BYOID has tangible benefits for end users and relying parties but it also has to be weighed in the balance with potential risks and liability concerns. It will be interesting to see how BYOID plays out in the enterprise.
