4/1/2011"Slash Your Computing Operating Costs with CAI’s Server Virtualization Service"
April 1, 2011 ― Computer Associates (CAI) today announced a partnership with VMware (NYSE:VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, that will enable CAI to help its clients reduce their overall IT costs by up to 70 percent through the use of VMware’s industry -leading server virtualization technology.

CAI’s new Server Virtualization Service reduces the physical number of servers a company needs to run its businesses by “virtualizing’ multiple servers on a single, physical server. The service reduces real estate and energy (power and cooling) requirements and significantly lowers capital costs. Virtualization also helps build up business continuity through faster and more reliable disaster recovery. Companies of every size benefit from virtualization—including all of the Fortune 100—which use this same VMware technology.

Jim McCooey, president of CAI, said, “In today’s economy, businesses are looking for any way possible to reduce operating costs, manage their resources with lower total cost of ownership and improve their bottom line. By letting you run multiple virtual machines on a single physical server, with each virtual machine sharing the resources of that one physical computer across multiple environments, our clients will save significantly on their IT costs and improve the efficiency and availability of their IT resources.”

McCooey added, “In fact, deploying the virtualization service internally, enabled us to reduce the number of servers we need to run our business from 23 to 4. The question is not whether you can afford to virtualize, but rather “How can you afford not to?”
