Intigua Secures $10 Million in Series B Funding Round Led by Intel Capital

Intigua™, the first company to enable software-defined operations using advanced container technology, today announced it has closed a $10 million Series B round led by new investor Intel Capital. Existing investors Bessemer Venture Partners and Cedar Fund also participated in the round, which brings the total invested capital to $21 million. Intigua will use the new monies to fund global sales, marketing and development of the Intigua Virtual Management platform, and accelerate its ability to execute on its software-defined operations vision.

This round follows a series of achievements for Intigua, including the coveted “Best of VMworld” award and a record 1H 2014 highlighted by the addition of several strategic customers, including a Fortune 500 technology company, one of the ten largest global banks, and the world’s largest IT systems integrator. Enterprises like these are turning to Intigua to accelerate workload delivery, improve application uptime and performance, and boost operational efficiencies across increasingly complex environments. By enabling software-defined operations, a concept Intigua coined to denote the ability to deliver systems management as a service at cloud scale, the company is ushering in a new era of IT operations.

"Intigua's automation and orchestration capabilities for software-defined operations help businesses transition to private cloud environments," said Arvind Sodhani, President of Intel Capital and Executive Vice President of Intel Corporation. "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."

Director Andy Fligel led the investment for Intel Capital.

“Intel Capital is world-renowned for investing in innovative companies that profoundly impact how businesses operate,” said Shimon Hason, CEO of Intigua. “We’re thrilled to play a role in helping Intel realize its vision of an end-to-end software-defined infrastructure by providing the virtualized management component. Intel Capital’s investment, along with continued support from Bessemer and Cedar, validate both the importance of this overlooked aspect of the software-defined movement and Intigua’s approach to enabling software-defined operations.”

The Intigua Virtual Management Platform automatically discovers new and existing workloads across physical, virtual and public/private cloud environments. Using the Intigua policy engine, the right management tools are configured, delivered and monitored based on the needs of the workload. Designed to be vendor-, cloud- and hypervisor-agnostic, Intigua leverages advanced container technology to provides users with unified abstraction, enabling them to easily consume and deliver management as a service. The platform supports a wide range of tools across performance monitoring, backup, security, logging, configuration management and more, from vendors including Amazon, BMC, CA, Chef, EMC, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Puppet, Splunk, VMware, as well as OpenStack.

However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are rapidly redefining traditional integration approaches and their reliance on proprietary connectors. ...
