Cloud management software company Intigua announced on Thursday it has secured $8.6 million in Series A financing led by Bessemer Venture Partners with participation from seed investors Cedar Fund and individual investors.
Web hosts have an opportunity to partner with cloud management software companies to provide customers with greater flexibility and control of their services, which can lead to increased sales.
Two cloud management platforms recently announced funding rounds of their own. Cloud management software developer OnApp closed a Series B round of funding, bringing its total funding to more than $20 million, while cloud management software provider Bettercloud raised $5 million in a Series A round of financing led by David Aronoff of Flybridge Capital Partners.
Using Intigua, IT organizations can transition critical applications to cloud infrastructures, while maintaining a high level of uptime, performance and security required for production applications.
Intigua virtualizes the management layer to turn management applications into on-demand data center services that are more scalable and agile.
Other than Intigua, BVP has previously invested in cloud and infrastructure management companies such as BladeLogic, Veritas, 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,” said Shimon Hason, Intigua CEO. “Having a partner like Bessemer, with their experience and proven vision in this space, is invaluable.”
Ram Metser, former CEO of intrastructure security provider Guardium, is also joining the board.
The Intigua platform delivers scalability and agility by “de-coupling the management stack from the underlying infrastructure,” says the company.
The platform abstracts management software into virtual containers that can be rapidly provisioned on all virtual machines simultaneously, updated with security patches, or removed in the event of malfunction.
IT organizations can configure centralized policies to configure the amount of VM resources consumed by management software.
Intigua enables IT organizations to continuously monitor and control all of their management solutions in real-time from a single unified console.
