  • As companies gain more experience with virtualization technologies and see the benefits, they can begin to implement virtualization in their production application environments. When mission critical applications are moved into virtualized environments more management tools are needed to guarantee efficiency, and availability. The level of complexity grows as the size and numbers of virtualized environments and applications increase. Lines between physical, virtual and application environments become blurred, so tools that interoperate and address a variety of systems and management disciplines are required. Platform and operating system vendor management tools do not have the scope (breadth and depth) of functionality. CA DOES. And the quality, breadth, and depth of our solutions are unequaled by any other vendor. Let ’ s take a moment to see how CA helps one of our customers move into the next phase of virtualization. [SUCCESS BUILD] One of our customers is using virtualized environments for: MGM MIRAGE has a clear virtualization strategy. theycurrently have 1,700 physical servers in their environment and expect to have 3 quarters of those virtualized by 2010.  As one of our strategic vendors CA and its solutions are playing a key role in helping them achieve and manage this objective by providing a robust set of tools to manage all phases and components of virtualization. This includes the planning and execution of the overall virtualization project (clarity, IT Asset Manager), management of the underlying infrastructure supporting the virtual environment, (Spectrum, eHealth, Service Desk, ITCM,  Spectrum AM) and finally management of the virtual environment itself (ITCM, Spectrum AM, Spectrum, eHealth).

  • Like any new technology, Virtualization is being implemented by businesses small and large, local to global. Enterprise IT organizations typically implement virtualization in phases. Let ’ s take a look at some typical adoption scenarios. Typically, virtualization is first implemented in software development and testing environments. This is a good place for companies to try out virtualization because it is relatively non-critical compared to production processing environments. The benefit is more efficient development and testing, because code can be developed and tested in multiple operating environments from a single workstation. Computing resources are used more efficiently because system configurations can be created (provisioned) as they are needed, and only for the length of time they are needed, and freed for other uses when they are no longer needed. A great example of this is CA Labs-on-Demand – at CA we consolidated development labs in 23 locations down to 4. We were able to leverage our computing capacity by creating private virtual resource pools that provide on-demand development and test environments. Our developers are thrilled because, with CA ’ s self-service provisioning, they get test environments set up in minutes as opposed to days, and they can reconfigure them on an as needed basis. Our CFO is thrilled because we are saving over $2m in planned real estate savings, and have saved over $6mm in labor costs to date. Server utilization is up, and administrative costs are down. In virtualized development and test environments the most important management issues are performance and infrastructure management. CA provides tools for self-service provisioning which add significant agility to development and test environments. Our performance management products are useful for analyzing the performance of applications and processing environments to detect where the performance problems are before applications are ported to production systems. Our discovery tools automate some of the administration of development and test labs by identifying allocated but unused resources and returning them to the pool of available resources. Virtualization with CA tools adds agility and efficiency to development projects.

  • To enable SPs to be successful cloud providers To enable enterprises to be successful cloud users With solutions that simplify both virtual and physical management For both cloud providers and cloud users How to become a cloud user to enable more efficient, less costly operations? How to leverage existing assets to become a successful cloud provider ? For example at CIBER Inc., a large managed service provider, CA tools have proven particularly useful for the company’s IT Outsourcing unit. Among other things, CIBER hosts enterprise apps for global companies on its own server cloud. CIBERs clients expect virtualization and cloud technology to reduce their cost, complexity and server footprints, and expect us to manage everything against SLAs. That means they needed the best tools they could find, and CA provided these for them thru NSM eHealth Spectrum Service Desk Asset Manager and ASM Desktop Server Management
  • IDC expects cloud service and Saas providers will begin to invest in a number of enterprise systems management software tools that are designed to manage information and computing environments… They types of tools include: Automated provisioning tools capable of managing very large scale virtualized data center resources; Automated, policy based workflow and run book automation tools to standardize and simplify many routine, repetitive operational tasks; Consumption-based billing for compute cycles and application services Configuration, discovery and change control tools and lifecycle asset management systems Performance monitoring and service level reporting tools optimized for applications running in virtualized environments. Scale matters…. The ability of traditionally enterprise-oriented systems mgt vendors to invest in development, sales and support dedicated to the needs of cloud service providers will be critical One criteria vendors can expect … is their tool’s ability to discover, correlate, analyze and identify root cause related to hundreds of thousands of event data alerts and elements. They will need to flow this data into the CMDB, service desk and asset mgt tools in real time in order to ensure that cloud customer service representatives and internal operations team members are always on the same page. Integration and standardized interfaces will also be top priorities

With CA CIBER provides its customers a virtualized environment that provides: The best service thru SLAs Reduces their costs Reduces complexity and server footprints DHS Required a standard management platform for virtualized environment VMware deployment – 400+ servers and growing quickly 300 additional servers planned Over the next 3 years, they will migrate an additional 15,000 servers to VMware serving all govt. agencies Checkfree/Fiserv Large VMware environment, total of 240 ESX servers Prior customer of CA ASM r11.1, 40 ESX servers managed currently Recent acquisition results in 3,000 ESX servers that will need to be managed eventually Impressed with having 1 agent on the VC server managing all the ESX servers connected to it. Checkfree is a company that provides financial e-commerce services. One of the major areas of focus is electronic billing by banks and they create custom applications for these banks to run these services. Out of the 25 largest banks in the US, Checkfree services are used by 21 of them. They currently use NSM to manage many of these servers hosting these custom bank applications. Virtualization is some thing at Checkfree that is taken seriously and is being implemented vastly. Currently they use ASM r11.1 to manage 40 ESX servers and they have approximately 200 ESX servers they would like to monitor using ASM. Checkfree was recently acquired by Fiserv and with this they will have over 3000 ESX servers in their environment - ASM will be used to manage all these ESX servers. Tesco Xen management MGM Expedited the move to virtualized environment- 1275 of 1700 servers to be virtualized by 2010 Reduced CAPEX through virtualization Centralized server management across heterogeneous systems Proactive resolution before users are impacted MGM MIRAGE has a clear virtualization strategy. theycurrently have 1,700 physical servers in their environment and expect to have 3 quarters of those virtualized by 2010.  As one of our strategic vendors CA and its solutions are playing a key role in helping them achieve and manage this objective by providing a robust set of tools to manage all phases and components of virtualization.
