CA Expands Cloud Portfolio With 3Tera Buy
The privately held cloud-computing startup’s AppLogic software helps companies build and deploy applications to public and private clouds.
CA on Wednesday added another piece to its growing cloud-computing portfolio when it announced the acquisition of 3Tera, an Aliso Viejo, Calif.-based developer of software applications used to build and deploy applications for public and private clouds.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
3Tera’s AppLogic software allows companies to use a browser to manage and scale on-demand, fully distributed applications for both in-house clouds and as a platform for cloud-computing services.
“3Tera technology is a powerful addition to the total solution CA provides for optimizing these high-value supply chains—from the mainframe to the cloud,” Chris O’Malley, CA’s executive vice president of cloud products, said in a statement.”CIOs can use cloud computing to build and manage a new type of IT ‘supply chain’ across today’s virtualized internal and external technology infrastructure.”
CA has made a number of cloud-computing acquisitions in the past two years, including the September acquisition of network performance management software developer NetQoS, a purchase that resulted in an additional $10 million in sales during its third quarter.
It snapped up Cassatt, a provider of cloud computing software that makes data centers more efficient, in June and Oblicore, a developer of service level management applications (SLM) for the cloud, in January.
