Wheelings & Dealings: Software-Defined Operations Firm Garners $10B in Round B

By Paula Bernier July 24, 2014

A company called Intigua, which is levering software-defined technology to deliver systems management as a service, today revealed it has raised $10 million in additional funding.

Coming aboard for Intigua’s B round funding is Intel Capital, which led this round and is joined existing investors Bessemer Venture Partners and Cedar Fund. To date, Intigua has put together $21 million in funding. This round B funding will be used to pay for global sales, marketing, and development of the Intigua Virtual Management platform.

"Intigua's automation and orchestration capabilities for software-defined operations help businesses transition to private cloud environments," explains Arvind Sodhani, president of Intel Capital and executive vice president of Intel Corp. "This investment supports the industry trend toward software-defined infrastructure, enables a whole new level of agility for customers to maximize value, and supports Intel's innovation strategy."

The Intigua platform automatically discovers new and existing workloads across physical, virtual, and public/private cloud environments. It supports a wide range of backup, configuration management, logging, performance monitoring, security, and other tools from such suppliers as Amazon, BMC, CA, Chef, EMC, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Puppet, Splunk, and VMware. And Intigua emphasizes that it employs advanced container technology to do unified abstraction, enabling users to consume and deliver management as a service.

Intigua, which says it has several customers, has garnered not only new funding, but a fair amount of industry recognition since launching its solution two years ago – having twice won the Best of VMworld award. The Newton, Mass.-based company is led by Shimon Hason, CEO, who was previously a principal at venture capital firm Cedar Fund, and director of product management at mobile advertising platform organization Amobee.
