CA Workload Automation Scalability

The tool can probably handle way bigger stuff than what we are doing. We are a gas distribution company, but we also own other companies. We are only using this at one of our locations where there are several million customers. We are firing off jobs that are billing those customers, managing meter readings, and various other billing-related financials and lettering processes. We are not at a Netflix or American Airlines level. I am pretty sure we have way more capacity in the product then what we are using. View full review »

We haven't had any issues. If we need more space, we just throw more space on the servers. If we need to have it connect to more databases or more services, there really is no issue with it. View full review »

It scales very well. We can add jobs and remove jobs. We do not have problems maintaining the product across multiple environments and multiple servers. View full review »

Supervisor For Support Operations at Hollister Incorporated
In terms of scalability, right now we're a new customer so we haven't scaled it up to other applications yet, but we are planning to. We've opened it up for our Windows environment and they are enjoying it right now. That's a very small group, for right now, but we plan on adding close to 15,000 servers to it. So it's going to benefit us a lot. View full review »

Scalability, it's all based on the agents, so we have to place all these agents on different servers. That seems to be doable, so we haven't had any problems with scalability. View full review »

Db2 Says Programer at a insurance company with 5,001-10,000 employees
No issues at all. In fact, that's actually one of the, I would say, competitive advantages of this product, the scalability and its ability to do the throughput we would need without having any delays. We've scaled with it as far as we can grow. I've been talking to other companies that are much larger. I'm confident it could scale. If we had a tenfold growth, we'd still be okay. View full review »

We're currently crossing over into another insurance underwriting software product, and I see no problems with it being able to scale into this new product area. View full review »

IT System Analyst Senior at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
Obviously, scalability is dependent on the mainframe MIPS. If you need more to run the jobs, once it's running jobs, it's out of CA 7's control. We haven't any performance issues, any time recently, of it not being able to get jobs into the cues. View full review »

The scalability is awesome because we use it for the mainframe schedule as well as distributive schedule. View full review »
ScottPeters
Consultant at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
It seems to be there. I think we have some issues that we need to address with lag and latency. We have two instances of production AutoSys and we want to collapse that into one, so we want to work with CA to figure out a better solution of how to use the single instance to process all our workload.

The system itself is not scalable but you can add multiple connections into it. You can use the APIs to integrate with other systems. View full review »
