Enterprise cloud management company Intigua raises $8.6m
Jan 21, 2013 (Globes - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Enterprise cloud management company Intigua has secured $8.6 million in series A financing led by Bessemer Venture Partners with participation from seed investors Cedar Fund and individual investors. Founded in 2009, and headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts, the company has a development center in Israel.
Winner of the Best of VMworld 2012 Gold Award for New Technology, Intigua claims to "solve a major and often unforeseen challenge faced by IT when transitioning critical applications to cloud infrastructures: How to extend deeply-embedded and critical monitoring, management and security technology never intended for the massive scale and dynamic nature of today's private, public and hybrid clouds -- but essential for delivering uptime, performance and security required for production applications."
The company continues, "Just as servers, storage and networks have been virtualized, Intigua virtualizes the management layer, transforming management applications into on-demand datacenter services that are more scalable and agile. This also enables IT to use their existing management applications to manage all systems across physical, private and public cloud infrastructures from a single screen."
Intigua CEO Shimon Hason said, "We're helping enterprises move confidently to cloud infrastructures without compromising SLAs and governance, knowing their monitoring and management solutions will scale to meet this dynamic new environment."
Bessemer partner Bob Goodman, who joins the Intigua board, said "Virtualization and cloud computing are forcing a re-think of infrastructure management. We believe Intigua has a unique and elegant solution that addresses today's key challenges."
Also joining the Intigua board is Ram Metser, former CEO of Guardium, the infrastructure security company acquired by IBM in 2009.
