Bird Hosting Expands Cloud Service Offerings Powered by CA 3Tera AppLogic Software

CA Technologies Customer Increases Agility and Unlocks Cost Savings with Application-centric Cloud Platform

ISLANDIA, N.Y., April 7, 2011CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that Bird Hosting, a cloud service provider and longtime 3Tera customer, has signed a multi-year license agreement with CA Technologies, extending the company’s previous month-to-month arrangement and tripling the number of servers running the software.

Bird Hosting has managed its entire catalog of services, including shared hosting, virtual servers, clustered servers and virtual private data centers (VPDCs) on the CA 3Tera® AppLogic® platform since early 2009, resulting in increased flexibility and cost savings.

The CA 3Tera AppLogic platform has helped us expand our services to include those which are more attractive to large enterprises, without compromising customer service or adding to our overhead costs – a savings we can pass to our customers,” said Michael Wallace, president of Bird Hosting. “Using CA 3Tera AppLogic software allows us to offer more complex, value-added services that our larger customers demand, while continuing to meet the needs of all 3,600 customers – no matter their size.”

After switching to CA 3Tera AppLogic software in 2009, Bird Hosting transitioned from dedicated servers to a CA 3Tera AppLogic-based grid built on commodity servers and reduced its data center footprint by 64 percent, consolidating 200 servers to 10 in just one data center alone. By serving multiple customers from a single grid environment and allocating processing power and memory based on the needs of individual customers, the company was able to expand its services beyond basic “one customer per server” web hosting. Additionally, Bird Hosting automated the entire customer start-up process, including ordering, provisioning and billing, and creating self-service offerings.


CA 3Tera AppLogic software’s drag-and-drop interface makes configuring complex applications as easy as drawing them,” said Wallace. “Now, we can automate processes that would have been previously impossible for a team of our size to handle because of the necessary labor- and time-intensive manual configurations. In addition, our customers appreciate that we can easily scale capacity up or down based on their usage, thereby, charging them only for what they need.

“Bird Hosting is a prime example of a web hosting provider that has transformed its business to deliver advanced cloud services that meet customers’ needs for more sophisticated managed services,” said Adam Famularo, general manager, Cloud Computing business, CA Technologies. “The CA 3Tera AppLogic platform gives Bird Hosting the flexibility to continue to bring new innovation to its customers in this fast-moving market.”

Designed for managed service providers (MSPs) and innovative enterprises, the CA 3Tera AppLogic application-centric cloud platform allows users to turn an application and the infrastructure that supports it into a single manageable object.  After visually drawing the objects once, they can be scaled and replicated or migrated quickly to another data center in response to the changing needs of the business. The result enables users to achieve greater agility, scalability, ease-of-use and cost efficiency in cloud computing than was previously possible.
