Virtana Acquires OpsCruise, Solidifies its Leadership in the AIOps And Multi-Cloud Hybrid Infrastructure Space

Virtana, an IT operations management (ITOM) company accelerating hybrid, multi-vendor, and multi-cloud infrastructure innovation, is acquiring cloud observability platform, OpsCruise, a purpose-built cloud-native, and Kubernetes observability platform.

“We are thrilled to join forces with Virtana to help deliver on their vision of hybrid infrastructure management,” said Scott Fulton, founder and CEO of OpsCruise. “Cloud observability has become a data problem. Traditional tools require significant configuration and tuning to simply present telemetry data on dashboards. OpsCruise automatically makes sense of the data to provide contextual insights, identify degradations and automate causal analysis—an observability smart layer. It’s about enabling engineers to toil less with monitoring tools, incidents, and war rooms.”

According to the company, with this acquisition, Virtana continues to deliver on its vision to support simplified and unified hybrid infrastructure observability for on-prem, cloud, and edge multi-vendor environments by extending its hybrid coverage to support cloud-native, open-source, containers, and serverless functions. 

With OpsCruise, Virtana now supports Kubernetes deployments anywhere and automates anomaly detection to identify suspicious behaviors and data protection. The acquisition also enhances extensibility with improved support of a broad range of Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings.

OpsCruise’s solution empowers ITOps/DevOps/SRE teams to predict performance degradation and pinpoint its cause. This is enabled by the deep understanding of Kubernetes and popular technologies used in modern applications, coupled with OpsCruise’s unique contextual Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) based behavior profiling.

OpsCruise solution is also tightly integrated with leading open-source monitoring tools and cloud providers for metrics, logs, traces, flows, and configuration data, freeing customers from costly proprietary alternatives.

Co-created in 2018 by The Fabric, a Silicon Valley startup foundry focused on cloud and IoT infrastructure, and tech entrepreneurs Scott Fulton, Aloke Guha, and Shridhar Venkatraman, OpsCruise was founded with a vision to address the challenges of complexity and cost of managing applications in the cloud.  

Leading organizations, including Avis Car Rental, Telefonica, Tesla, and United Airlines, use OpsCruise to solve challenges, such as slow-downs, expensive proprietary telemetry collection, unexpected dependencies, misconfigurations, and resource saturation across Kubernetes, cloud services, and infrastructure.

Virtana Platform delivers unified hybrid infrastructure management solutions, including real-time performance monitoring, large-scale analytics capabilities, support for Kubernetes on-premises, Cloud Cost Management, and Workload Placement.

“At Virtana, one of our core values is fostering customer obsession and innovation. Our team is committed to delivering the industry’s most robust hybrid cloud infrastructure monitoring and management solution, and the acquisition of OpsCruise augments that effort,” said Kash Shaikh, president and CEO of Virtana. “The integration of OpsCruise into our portfolio was driven by our many conversations with IT leaders worldwide to understand their challenges and how Virtana can help address them.”
