Intigua Raises $8.6M in Series A Funding Led by Bessemer Venture Partners

Enterprise 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 key challenges.”

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,” said Shimon 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 Enterprise Cloud

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.
