selected the CA AppLogic®

consisting of the application and the supporting
infrastructure, to provide a wide range of
Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service and
Software-as-a-Service (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) offerings.
CBN selected the CA AppLogic platform over competing
products based on its differentiated features, which
include the ability to package application software with
infrastructure, rapid deployment and fully automated
provisioning - as well as CA Technologies flexible
licensing and exceptional service.
"We chose CA AppLogic due to its market differentiation and
ease of use. We are particularly impressed by the rapid
deployment to the cloud and flexibility. We also appreciate
the improved application performance and reliability after
switching to the platform," said Tony Hairman, Chief
Technology Officer, CBN. "We were able to implement the
solution independently without a need for a third party
system integrator. CA Technologies demonstrated a keen
understanding of our business needs - which include the
right services, the right licensing terms, and the right
long-term roadmap - in addition to the right technology."
The CA AppLogic platform enables an organization to
establish a cloud computing environment in mere hours,
including the features needed to operate and manage the
cloud. Before implementing CA AppLogic, the hardware and
software integration, and installation for a new customer
would require a lead time between five days and two weeks.
With CA AppLogic, CBN Cloud estimates they could set up a
new customer between five and 30 minutes.
Using CA AppLogic, CBN Cloud can integrate, monitor and
scale applications and infrastructure with just a GUI
allowing CBN Cloud to scale quickly without changing
complex code or architecture.
In turn, many of the benefits of CA AppLogic created
additional value and savings for CBN Cloud customers, which
hail from various industries-from financial services, to
online and traditional news publications and e-commerce
sites. They stand to benefit from cost reduction in
equipment requirements, a pay-as-you-use billing scheme,
convenience and rapid scalability through virtualization.
"A cloud deployment may seem like a daunting task for an
enterprise or CSP to embark on, but the process can be
optimized with the right solution," said Manivannan
Govindan, Director, Solution Strategy, CA Technologies,
Asia South. "This project is a prime example of how CBN
Cloud recognizes CA Technologies to be an ideal partner to
accelerate and transform their cloud offerings in a rapid
and simple manner, while controlling costs and ensuring the
compliance of their IT operations."
The CBN Cloud service provides ready-to-use hardware,
software and infrastructure on a monthly billing structure,
