CA Technologies to buy Hyperformix

By buying Hyperformix, CA Technologies will boost its ability to manage virtualized infrastructures

CA Technologies has entered into a formal agreement to purchase capacity management software provider Hyperformix, which is based in Austin, Texas, the two companies announced Tuesday.

CA plans to use the technologies to strengthen its virtualization offerings, CA officials said. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Virtualization capacity management is among customers' most critical IT management needs," said Roger Pilc, who is the general manager of CA's virtualization and automation customer solutions business, in a statement.

Most of CA's customers are in the early stages of using virtualization, and as they continue ramp up the technology, it will become increasingly important to monitor infrastructure usage and predict future usage, added Andi Mann, vice president of virtualization product marketing, in a blog post.

The Hyperformix technology will also allow users to cut down on virtual machine sprawl, where the organization is maintaining too many unnecessary virtual machines, which can take up storage and server space, Mann said.

Hyperformix specializes in software for automatically managing capacity in physical, virtual and cloud IT infrastructures. The software can show how much storage and networking resources are being used, highlight inefficiencies, and can help users predict how much be used in the future. It can also assist in allotting these resources for the most effective use.

The companies plan to close the deal by the end of the year. Hyperformix employees will become part of CA's Virtualization and Automation business unit.
