Virtual Instruments Acquires Xangati

Combined company creates industry’s first end-to-end application-centric infrastructure performance management and analytics solution

San Jose, Calif. – November 16, 2016 – Virtual Instruments, the leader in infrastructure performance management, today announced it has acquired Xangati, a hybrid cloud and virtualization performance management company. The acquisition creates the industry’s first application-centric infrastructure performance management platform that is real-time, cross-domain, and empowers IT teams to ensure application performance and availability as they digitally transform their businesses.

Xangati’s products enable a self-healing, self-optimizing hybrid data center, complementing Virtual Instruments’ deep expertise and experience in IT infrastructure performance analytics. Together, the offerings deliver unparalleled application infrastructure performance and availability management by providing comprehensive, correlated real-time insight for any server, network interconnect or data store across the entire data center.

Virtual Instruments and Xangati address a gap in existing application and infrastructure performance monitoring approaches by providing comprehensive visibility and actionable analysis across the compute, network and storage infrastructure in the modern hybrid data center. The combination of Virtual Instruments and Xangati gives IT teams control of application performance delivery and infrastructure spend within private or public clouds on legacy or hyperconverged platforms.

The Xangati acquisition is the second significant transaction in 2016 for Virtual Instruments. Earlier this year, the company merged with leading storage performance analytics provider Load DynamiX. Virtual Instruments continues to see widespread and increasing demand.

“Our mission is to create a world where applications and infrastructure perform better together, and this acquisition supports that goal for our Global 2000 customers. By adding Xangati’s monitoring and advanced analytics expertise to Virtual Instruments’ capabilities, we are even better positioned to help companies assure performance, increase availability, and optimize the cost of application and service delivery,” said Philippe Vincent, CEO of Virtual Instruments.

“The combination of Virtual Instruments, Load DynamiX and Xangati has now created a company with the scale, expertise and capabilities to lead the market for next-generation performance and availability solutions,” said John Kim, managing partner of HighBar Partners, lead investor in Virtual Instruments.

“EMA Research shows that more than 90 percent of enterprises are unable to predict or reliably monitor application performance within today’s complex hybrid infrastructure environments. Virtual Instruments has been a leader in application-centric storage infrastructure monitoring and performance analysis for many years and with the acquisition of Xangati, the company now owns all the critical parts to offer a single solution for proactive virtualization, server, network, storage and cloud performance management,” said Torsten Volk, managing research director, Enterprise Management Associates.

As a result of the acquisition, Virtual Instruments will enhance its existing capabilities in infrastructure performance monitoring with:

Deeper visibility into key environments:

  • IP network infrastructure and network flows
  • Compute and virtualization layer
  • VDI
  • Public cloud environments such as Oracle and Amazon AWS
  • Containers

Advanced analytics:

  • Real-time contention analytics
  • Predictive capacity analytics
  • Adaptive control analytics

“IT architects, applications delivery and infrastructure operations teams need a holistic approach to proactively ensure the performance and availability of their constantly evolving hybrid data centers,” said Jagan Jagannathan, founder and chief technology officer of Xangati, and now chief innovation officer of Virtual Instruments. “Now that Xangati is part of Virtual Instruments, these teams will have a shared view into how changes in application behavior and infrastructure affect application performance, complementing application performance management (APM) solutions. This unparalleled visibility across the digital landscape will help enterprises scale and adapt.”

“We have been using the Xangati products as the foundation of our NovaMonitor real-time network infrastructure monitoring service for our customers, which has allowed us to offer differentiated high-value services,” said Jason McGinnis, president of NeoNova, a leading provider of subscriber and network solutions for regional broadband providers. “The combination of Virtual Instruments and Xangati is compelling as it will enable us to offer a broader range of monitoring services with complete end-to-end infrastructure visibility.”
