Virtualizes Entire Management Stack for Private & Public Clouds,
Simplifying IT Operations and Ensuring IT Governance
Newton, MA – September 19, 2013 – Intigua, the first company to virtualize the IT management stack for private and public clouds, has been honored with a Best of VMworld award for the second consecutive year.
Named the 2013 Finalist for Security/Compliance and Virtualization, Intigua was recognized for ensuring all server instances in private or public clouds adhere to corporate policies for SLAs, security and compliance — without sacrificing the on-demand simplicity and agility that business users expect from the cloud.
This award comes on the heels of Intigua’s Best of VMworld 2012 Gold Award for New Technology, for which one of the judges said “I’ve never seen anything like this.”
An independent team of experts and editors from TechTarget’s SearchServerVirtualization.com selected Intigua Virtual Containers for the 2013 award from more than 200 nominees in nine categories. The annual Best of VMworld awards showcases the top technologies of the year, which are judged according to innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use.
“Enterprise IT organizations want to provide an AWS-like experience to their users, but—until Intigua— they faced a vexing tradeoff between self-service agility and IT governance,” said Shimon Hason, Intigua CEO. “Intigua eliminates this problem by virtualizing and abstracting the IT management stack – just as servers, networks and storage have been virtualized — and replacing fragmented, decentralized and manual change processes with an automated, centralized and policy-driven approach. With Intigua, IT delivers the flexibility users need, while gaining unprecedented ease and control over the entire management stack, including critical technologies such as server monitoring, configuration management, security logging and data backup.”
Intigua Virtual Containers, a key enabling technology within the Intigua 2.0 platform, is the first product that encapsulates critical management, security and compliance agents in protected “sandboxes” that are de-coupled from the underlying guest OS. This allows virtual agents to run on machines without the risk and overhead of physically installing them, as well as allowing all virtual agents (monitoring, security, etc.) to be monitored and orchestrated from a single unified portal.
Centralized, Policy-Based Automation for Management and Security
Intigua 2.0 is the only off-the-shelf solution for automating and orchestrating the entire management stack (e.g., Splunk, Hyperic, Nagios, NetBackup, IBM Tivoli, SCOM, HP-OO, etc.). It integrates directly with standard virtualization and orchestration platforms including vCenter, vCAC/vCO, Cloud Stack, Open Stack, and Service Mesh, as well as custom solutions. Intigua is complementary to cloud management platforms such as vCAC, which provision pre-configured images, and custom scripting tools such as Puppet, which provision OSs and applications/middleware rather than the management stack.
By using Intigua 2.0 to replace manual processes with automated delivery, configuration and centralized control, enterprises can, for the first time, deliver production-ready VMs in private, public or hybrid clouds — configured with all management technologies essential for SLAs, security and compliance — in minutes instead of days or weeks. This vastly improves IT’s ability to meet dynamic business needs while minimizing operational overhead.
Winner of “Best of VMworld” awards for 2 years running, Intigua virtualizes the IT management stack — just as servers, storage and networks have been virtualized – bringing simplicity and agility to IT operations for private and public clouds, and virtual and physical data centers. Intigua is backed by leading investors including Bessemer Venture Partners and Cedar Fund. Learn more at intigua.com.
