Intigua Receives Best of VMworld Award
Sep 24, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Intigua, a company, which virtualized the IT management stack for private and public clouds, announced that it has been honored with a Best of VMworld award for the second consecutive year.
According to a release, 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."
The company noted that 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 reported that its 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.
