uXcomm acquires Virtugo

Quoting from the uXcomm official announcement:

uXcomm, the leading provider of software products that monitor, control and optimize virtual and physical server environments, today announced that the company has acquired the assets of Virtugo Software, a pioneer in performance and service level management tools for virtual environments. The combination of Virtugo’s products and uXcomm’s Service-Oriented Management Architecture (SOMA) now enables IT professionals to address a growing problem in the data center: trying to manage 1000s of virtual servers on 1000s of physical servers.

The combination of uXcomm’s XManage platform, which supports XenSource’s core virtualization technologies, and Virtugo’s VirtualSuite, which supports VMware, provides the first integrated management solution for heterogeneous physical and virtual environments.

Under terms of the agreement, uXcomm is purchasing all of Virtugo’s VirtualSuite product line, including Perform and PerformLite, Capacity, Optimize, Meter and Connect, as well as the company’s proven and tested architecture. The company is assuming responsibility for all sales and support contracts and has retained several key members of the Virtugo staff, including Chris Dickson, who is joining uXcomm as vice president of business development…
