Value-added distributor Westcon Group is expanding its focus on the data center and cloud via an expanded relationship with CA Technologies. The agreement will provide North American reseller partners access to CA’s full IT management portfolio.
CA’s converged management functionality brings together multiple environments into one solution—including planning, configuration/provisioning, monitoring and troubleshooting—within an integrated network, compute, storage and application environment.
“With the rapid proliferation of converged infrastructures, IT management under one umbrella makes perfect sense,” said David Bradley, senior vice president of global partners at CA Technologies. “For more than a decade, we’ve partnered with industry experts at Westcon Group to accelerate adoption of our technology in key regions throughout the world. Based on this success, it’s a clear win to expand this relationship to North America.”
Daniel Papes, senior vice president of global data center and cloud solutions at Westcon Group. “We have a long track-record with CA Technologies, helping them seamlessly enter new markets based on Westcon Group’s broad-based market focus and deep technology expertise.”
He added, “With its focus on converged management, CA Technologies is clearly one of the top vendors in the data center market, so it’s a natural progression to anchor our practice with such an important solution.”
