CA's thousands of developers need access to a variety of server platforms to create and test code for new products and releases. Demand for test systems can vary considerably. To fulfill these peaks in demand, CA needed to find an efficient and cost-effective way to provide easy and fast access to IT resources for Research and Development (R&D) purposes. With thousands of servers spread across 50-plus labs, the company was also keen to reduce its power, real estate, and cooling requirements and find a more sustainable way to scale its R&D operations to meet future customer and business needs. By implementing a shared services model, CA has created a 'Labs on Demand' facility, which can be accessed remotely by developers around the world.
