CA, ViaWest Team Up on New Cloud Service Platform for ISVs
CA Technologies has announced its AppLogic turnkey cloud platform and CA Cloud Automation solution is at the heart of data center operator and managed service provider ViaWest’s new Xen-based KINECTed Cloud – Innovator offering.
For ViaWest’s part, KINECTed Cloud – Innovator (who comes up with these names?) is an infrastructure-as-a-service solution aimed at cloud ISVs, designed to grant them the storage, scalability and security needed to develop and deploy cloud applications. As you may expect, ViaWest is boasting its pay-as-you-go model, the capability to onboard customers in minutes, the ability to create and use self-service portals and back-office integration.
Pretty standard stuff. In the press release, ViaWest noted its KINECTed Cloud – Innovator boosts its overall “hybrid services portfolio, offering a comprehensive suite of solutions from test/dev to production, and from managed services to colocation, complex hosting and more.”
It’s no secret that CA is making major waves around pushing channel adoption of CA AppLogic and CA Cloud Automation, with the former attracting no fewer than 60 new partners (maybe 61 now?) and the latter promoted as a key part of the CA Cloud Acceleration partner initiative.
