Today in Cloud

I am pleased to see that CA has acquired much of Cassatt’s intellectual property, as well as some of its key personnel. CA, of course, has a broad portfolio of systems management and data center automation software, but it hasn’t had (to my knowledge) anything like Cassatt’s software. CA now can offer active, on-demand power management, as well as a legitimate internal cloud solution. Cassatt’s fate got quite a bit of press last month when word spread that the ahead-of-its-time company was running out of money. Hopefully now, Cassatt’s software will get the kind of visibility it deserves.
