cloud management company Intigua has secured $8.6 million in Series
A financing led by Bessemer
Venture Partners (BVP) with participation from seed investors Cedar
Fund and individual investors.
Winner of the "Best
of VMworld 2012 Gold Award" for New Technology, Intigua solves 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.
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.
"Bessemer has been investing in industry-leading IT infrastructure
companies for decades, and have never been more excited about the
potential for innovation in this arena," said Bessemer partner Bob
Goodman who joins the Intigua board. "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
BVP has demonstrated success investing
in cloud and infrastructure management companies such as BladeLogic
(acquired by BMC), Veritas (acquired by Symantec), VeriSign, and Box.
"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,"
Hason, Intigua CEO. "Having a partner like Bessemer, with their
experience and proven vision in this space, is invaluable."
Also joining the board is Ram Metser, former CEO of Guardium, the
infrastructure security company acquired by IBM in 2009.
The Intigua Platform - Scalable Monitoring and Management for the
The Intigua platform delivers scalability and agility by decoupling the
management stack from the underlying infrastructure. It abstracts
management software into virtual containers that can be rapidly
provisioned on all virtual machines (VMs) simultaneously, updated with
security patches, or removed entirely in case of malfunction. For the
first time, IT organizations can configure centralized policies to
govern the amount of VM resources consumed by management software,
ensuring quality of service for production applications. Scalability is
also achieved by tightly integrating with hypervisor management
platforms such as VMware vCenter.
With Intigua, IT organizations can now continuously monitor and control
all of their heterogeneous management solutions in real-time from a
single unified console. Intigua virtualizes any management solution
including widely-used applications such as Puppet, Splunk, IBM Tivoli
Monitoring (ITM) and Provisioning Manager (TPM), HP Operations Manager
(HPOM) and Server Automation (Opsware), Microsoft SCCM and SCOM, VMware
Hyperic and vCenter Configuration Manager (VCM), BMC BladeLogic,
Symantec NetBackup and Endpoint Protection (SEP), and EMC Networker.
Intigua virtualizes the management layer - just as servers, storage and
networks have been virtualized - bringing cloud-grade scalability and
agility to infrastructure monitoring and management. Winner of the "Best
of VMworld 2012 Gold Award" for New Technology, Intigua enables
enterprises to ensure the performance, availability and security of
business-critical applications running on large-scale physical, virtual,
private and public cloud, and hybrid infrastructures. Visit www.intigua.com
