Software vendor CA Technologies has added to its cloud computing and virtualisation stable with the acquisition of privately-held consultancy 4Base Technology.
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
Adam Elster, general manager of CA Services, said: "As CA Technologies expands its role as a strategic partner and advisor to customers on the journey from virtualisation to cloud computing, we are investing in both the software and consulting services needed to achieve substantial business results.
“4Base has worked with hundreds of customers across a broad spectrum of virtualisation and cloud technologies, including CA Technologies, Cisco, EMC, NetApp and VMware. Through this experience, 4Base has developed a broad base of skills, knowledge and experience that will play a critical role in CA Technologies' ability to help customers quickly plan, adopt and execute transformative strategies and technologies that make their business more agile, " he added.
Paul Camacho, co-founder of 4Base, said: "Enterprises have high interest in virtualisation and cloud computing, but suffer from a lack of proven best practices. We are thrilled that CA Technologies chose 4Base to bring validated on-site experience, proven approaches and highly skilled resources to its customers.
"We look forward to helping new and existing CA Technologies customers eliminate VM stall and develop a dynamic IT service supply chain that transforms IT from a cost centre to a business enabler, increases business agility, reduces IT costs, and increases quality of service," he said.
