Cloud Expo Gold Sponsor CA Technologies to Acquire Hyperformix

Hyperformix' capacity management solutions will help CA Technologies accelerate the journey from virtualization to the cloud

"Virtualization capacity management is among customers' most critical IT management needs," said Roger Pilc, general manager of CA Technologies Virtualization and Automation customer solutions business, as CA Technologies announced on Tuesday a definitive agreement to buy Hyperformix, a provider of capacity management software for dynamic physical, virtual, and cloud IT infrastructures. "Hyperformix strengthens our ability to help organizations advance their IT infrastructures to benefit the business," Pilc continued.

The acquisition of Hyperformix will help CA Technologies extend its leadership in virtualization management, with virtualization capacity management capabilities that complement its existing virtualization, automation, and assurance solutions. Together these technologies will comprise a comprehensive, integrated solution to help customers evolve from an entry-level virtualization project to a mature dynamic data center and private cloud operation.

Specifically, the combination of CA Technologies and Hyperformix will help organizations:

  • Overcome challenges such as VM Sprawl (uncontrolled VM deployments) and VM Stall (the inability to move beyond initial virtualization of 20-30 percent of servers);
  • Ensure application performance and service level agreements; and
  • Deliver cost, agility and availability benefits to the business through faster and more reliable data center consolidations, virtualization rollouts, platform refreshes and application migrations.

CA Technologies and Hyperformix share many customers and partners and this acquisition presents new opportunities for expanding and strengthening relationships with those organizations, while opening new opportunities with ones whose goal is to advance their virtualization operations.

"Capacity management is an important discipline for customers attempting to expand their virtualization and private cloud deployments," said Peter Klante, President and CEO, Hyperformix. "As a virtualization rollout progresses through the enterprise, insight and comprehensive planning are required to realize its potential. CA Technologies and Hyperformix will deliver on that critical need."

The transaction is expected to close within CA Technologies third fiscal quarter, which ends December 31, 2010. Hyperformix' operations and its employees will become part of the Virtualization and Automation business at CA Technologies. CA Technologies intends to expand its integrations with Hyperformix' solutions to include the CA Virtual, CA Service Automation, CA Service Assurance and CA Cloud portfolios.
