CA's Virtualization Performance Management Solution Now VMware Ready Optimized
CA, Inc. today announced that CA Advanced Systems Management (CA ASM) is VMware Ready™ Optimized. Enterprise and cloud computing customers can now use CA ASM−a centrally managed, platform-neutral solution−to discover, monitor, track, and optimize physical and virtual system resources in VMware Virtual Datacenter Operating System (VDC-OS) environments.

“CA ASM’s qualification as VMware Ready Optimized is the next step in our ongoing effort with VMware to enable organizations to effectively deploy, optimize and manage physical and virtual environments,” said Roger Pilc, corporate senior vice president and general manager of CA’s Infrastructure Management and Data Center Automation business unit. “Integrating with and complementing the VMware vCenterTM management product portfolio helps customers to reduce costs, mitigate risks, and improve efficiency, service quality and agility.”

Achieving VMware Ready Optimized status means that VMware has validated CA ASM as being architected, tuned or integrated to optimize VMware functionality for mutual customers. As part of the process, CA ASM passed a series of automated and manual compatibility tests.

“Our tests are designed to validate that VMware Ready products offer optimized levels of integration, functionality, and performance, while adhering to VMware’s architectural and supportability requirements,” said Shekar Ayyar, vice president of Infrastructure Alliances, VMware. “Achieving VMware Ready Optimized status helps CA assure enterprise and cloud computing customers that they can use our joint solutions to streamline and automate management processes, increase control, and improve efficiency across heterogeneous IT environments.”
