CA Technologies has extended its IT management tools to support the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).
The company said its CA Virtual Assurance, CA Service Automation, CA Service Assurance and the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution can be used automate and monitor cloud applications. The products enable IT managers to deploy applications and resources within the Amazon Web Services cloud infrastructure and monitor the technical performance of the services.
CA Technologies said the extended support for Amazon would help users achieve greater business agility and cost-effectively optimise their IT supply chain.
With Amazon VPC, CA Technologies customers can extend their datacentre into the cloud using a secure industry-standard encrypted IPsec virtual private network (VPN) connection. Users can create an isolated network, specify the IP address range, and then launch Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances into that network, CA Technologies said.
