Software-as-a-Service Offering to Meet Growing Global Demand for Rapidly Deployable, Subscription-Based Data Protection Solutions
ISLANDIA, N.Y., May 10, 2011 –/BackupReview.info/– CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced an agreement with Microsoft to offer customers its industry-leading CA ARCserveÂ® data protection technology as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering using Microsoftâ€™s Windows Azureâ„¢ cloud platform.
The new cloud offering, scheduled for availability in the second half of this year, is part of CA Technologies strategy for bringing rapidly deployable, easy-to-own IT management solutions to market. This solution will be especially attractive in situations where conventional, internally deployed backup-and-restore systems and software implementation may be less financially or operationally appealing, such as small businesses or remote offices that lack the necessary on-site IT staff.
CA Technologies use of Microsoftâ€™s Windows Azure platform for this new solution extends a working relationship between the two companies that has been providing high-value innovation to customers for more than 20 years. This relationship includes support for Microsoft Hyper-Vâ„¢ and Microsoftâ€™s System Center stack.
â€œCA Technologiesâ€™ SaaS data protection solution is designed to help customers cost-efficiently mitigate a wide range of information risks, including system downtime and catastrophic data loss across the customerâ€™s entire IT portfolio,â€ said Walid Abu-Hadba, corporate vice president, Microsoft Corporation. â€œThis announcement underscores the shared commitment of Microsoft and CA Technologies to the continued expansion of the cloud market.â€
The new solution will be designed to meet the needs of CA Technologies and Microsoft partnersâ€”especially those who may incorporate its data protection functionality into their broader cloud-based IT management offerings.
â€œBy leveraging vendor solutions and their own expertise, partners can offer customers the ability to cost-effectively offload routine IT operations,â€ said Mike Crest, general manager, Data Management, CA Technologies. â€œThe combination of our CA ARCserve technology and Microsoftâ€™s Windows Azure cloud platform will enable us to offer the partner community a scalable, feature-rich, and fully configurable resource for this growing management services market.â€
