In mid-August, CA acquired 4Base, a Sunnyvale, Calif.-based cloud computing infrastructure and virtualization consulting firm.
CA has said that 4Base will become the pivot point for its Virtualization and Cloud Strategy group, a competency practice within CA's Services Division. CA will leverage 4Base's consulting chops to help move customers quickly and pragmatically from virtualization to cloud computing through advice and implementation. It will also eliminate the complexity of making the leap into the cloud, CA has said.
CA foresees 4Base giving CA customers a range of services including virtualization operations readiness assessments, virtualization capability assessment and strategy and cloud-based advisory services.
The terms of the 4Base deal were not disclosed.
