Virtana focuses exclusively on providing vendor neutral infrastructure performance, capacity and cost management solutions across public, private, and hybrid cloud, as well as on-premises data center configurations that cover all components of the compute, storage, and network infrastructure. Founded in 2008 in San Jose, California, the company initially focused on managing fibre channel storage performance was supplemented by a merger with Load Dynamix in March 2016 that brought a greater focus on IP based storage management and the acquisition of Xangati in October 2016 that brought capabilities in virtualized and cloud infrastructure performance. In 2019 the acquisition of Metricly rounded out Virtana’s capabilities with deeper public cloud performance, capacity, and cost management functionality that has led to the launch of the new Virtana platform solution being evaluated here. A series of key strategic vendor resale alliances has seen Virtana technology alliances incorporated and resold to an impressive array of Global 2000 customers including in financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, telecoms and retail for whom reliable, highly performant customer facing systems are a critical business requirement.
