CA has released a number of IT management products aimed at making virtual environments more efficient, along with several green energy offerings.
The company said that it is expanding its virtualisation portfolio following predictions by analyst firm Forrester Research that 54 per cent of enterprises in Europe and the US will be running virtual environments by 2010.
Spectrum Service Assurance Manager is a new product designed to provide IT managers with a visual view of physical and virtual infrastructures, allowing them to pinpoint risks and produce service reports and application performance information more efficiently, the firm said.
CA has also enhanced its Spectrum Automation Manager, eHealth Performance Manager and Insight Database Peformance Manager solutions.
Spectrum Automation Manager r11.7, which provides dynamic resource provisioning across physical, virtual, and cloud environments, will now offer rapid physical-to-virtual and virtual-to-virtual server provisioning.
CA claimed that the new capabilities will help simplify virtualisation deployments and ensure quicker server recovery.
Meanwhile, eHealth Performance Manager r6.2, which monitors physical and virtual infrastructures and applications, now allows administrators to set alerts that indicate when system performance reaches a given threshold.
Insight Database Performance Manager r11.3, which manages database performance, has been upgraded so that it now monitors VMware environments.
Finally, new ecoSoftware products will help companies measure energy consumption. The tools will be available on demand with CA ecoGovernance 1.5, or on-premise with CA ecoMeter 1.5.
