Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
3Tera is a innovator of cloud computing technology and utility computing services, simplifying the deployment and scaling of online applications. Named "Cool Vendor in IT operations" by Gartner Group, 3Tera offers AppLogic, the first commercially available cloud computing solution that completely removes the cost and complexity associated with infrastructure.
Available both for building in-house private clouds and as a platform for cloud computing services, AppLogic allows the deployment of online applications in minutes instead of weeks, using only a browser to manage and scale on demand fully distributed systems and deliver security and business continuity for all applications, while fully controlling their cloud computing environment.
With 3Tera, which follows CA's recent acquisitions of Cassatt, NetQoS and Oblicore, CA continues to aggressively expand its portfolio of solutions to manage cloud computing as part of an integrated information technology management programme.
3Tera enables enterprises and service providers to provision, deploy and scale public and private cloud computing environments while maintaining full control, flexibility and reliability. 3Tera also makes it easy for service providers to offer application stacks on demand by adding applications to the AppLogic catalogue, where they can be deployed to a low-cost, shared cloud infrastructure.
3Tera's customers include more than 80 enterprises and service providers globally, which use the cloud computing technology to provide services to thousands of users.
