Intel Capital, a venture capital and private equity arm of Intel Corporation, has led a $10 million series B funding round for Intigua, the first company to enable software-defined operations using advanced container technology.
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.
