In August PHD Technologies, the US startup focused on virtual machines backup and recovery, secured an undisclosed amount of new funds.
Part of the money were used to appoint a new CEO and a new EVP of Worldwide Sales. Another part is now used to acquire the software department of Xtravirt, a consulting firm based in UK.
With this move PHD Technologies obtained a wide range of tool, covering several aspects of VMware infrastructures management: mass-configuration of ESX hosts, patch management, virtual machine backup and restore, and even a virtual SAN solution.
Additionally, the Xtravirt co-founder Alex Mittell joined PHD Technologies as Director of Research & Development.
Now the company has a chance to expand its business in many segments, mimicking the growth in popularity and size that companies like Veeam enjoyed so far.
