CA needed a private cloud platform as it continued to build out its cloud computing offerings. In February, CA acquired 3Tera, which makes a platform called AppLogic that lets users build cloud services and deploy applications to public and private clouds via its user interface. 3Tera represents a turnkey cloud platform for IT departments, solution providers and service providers to quickly and easily build and deploy cloud applications.
Neither company disclosed the financial terms of the acquisition.
3Tera and AppLogic give CA's cloud infrastructure a cloud enablement offering that can simplify the design and deployment of applications in the cloud. Integrating AppLogic with its other recent acquisitions and technologies helps CA offer a broader set of tools to manage and optimize cloud computing.
