ISLANDIA, N.Y., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — As part of its continued investment in virtualization and cloud management, CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA) today announced the acquisition of privately-held 4Base Technology, a virtualization and cloud infrastructure consulting firm. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
4Base will become the CA Virtualization and Cloud Strategy group, a competency practice within the CA Services division. With experience in more than 300 engagements, 4Base will help customers move quickly, pragmatically and successfully from virtualization to cloud by providing strategic advice and implementation expertise.
“As CA Technologies expands its role as a strategic partner and advisor to customers on the journey from virtualization to cloud computing, we are investing in both the software and consulting services needed to achieve substantial business results,” said Adam Elster, general manager of CA Services. “4Base has worked with hundreds of customers across a broad spectrum of virtualization and cloud technologies, including CA Technologies, Cisco, EMC, NetApp and VMware. Through this experience, 4Base has developed a broad base of skills, knowledge and experience that will play a critical role in CA Technologies ability to help customers quickly plan, adopt and execute transformative strategies and technologies that make their business more agile.”
Virtualization and cloud computing are in a fluid and evolving state, and CA Technologies will engage customers with a more comprehensive solution—both products and services—designed to help them fully realize the agility and operational benefits that can be derived from virtualization and cloud computing. With 4Base, CA Technologies customers can access proven approaches, skills and experience as they begin or continue on the virtualization-to-cloud journey, significantly reducing risk and accelerating returns.
“Enterprises have high interest in virtualization and cloud computing, but suffer from a lack of proven best practices,” said Paul Camacho, principal and co-founder of 4Base. “We are thrilled that CA Technologies chose 4Base to bring validated on-site experience, proven approaches and highly skilled resources to its customers. We look forward to helping new and existing CA Technologies customers eliminate VM stall and develop a dynamic IT service supply chain that transforms IT from a cost center to a business enabler, increases business agility, reduces IT costs, and increases quality of service.”
