Intigua Earns Best of VMworld Award for Second Consecutive Year
NEWTON, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
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 (News - Alert), 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 automaed, 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
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 (News - Alert), 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.
