ISLANDIA, N.Y., June 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA) today announced a new dedicated Managed Service Provider (MSP) licensing program in North America designed to meet the growing demand from service providers to offer customers acclaimed CA ARCserve® data protection, recovery and availability products on a convenient monthly licensing basis with no upfront costs.
Initially launched in Europe in April, the new CA ARCserve MSP Program enables MSPs and ISVs with a hosted offering to license the CA ARCserve Family of Products on a monthly subscription basis to provide cost effective, value-added services to customers.
The new CA ARCserve MSP program is available in North America through Ingram Micro's licensing sales group. It complements the subscription pricing that CA Technologies already offers MSPs for Nimsoft and 3tera AppLogic products -- creating even more revenue-generating potential for CA Technologies' MSP partners.
"CA Technologies has a history of delivering innovative programs and pricing strategies designed to make it practical and profitable for partners to leverage our rich technology portfolio to offer customers significant business value," said Adam Famularo, senior vice president and general manager of CA Technologies' Recovery Management and Data Modeling business unit. "With our new CA ARCserve MSP Program, we are providing our partners with a wealth of new business opportunities to offer value-added services and cost-effective choices to protect their customers' critical information assets."
By participating in the CA ARCserve Managed Service Provider Program, MSPs have a fast, simple on-ramp to offering a wide variety of hosted data protection solutions, including remote backup and failover services, protection of hosted applications, and storage as a service. The program is designed help fortify MSPs' existing services with dependable data protection technology.
Widespread Partner Support
