Virtana Acquires OpsCruise: Executive Insights

Kash Shaikh, President and CEO of Virtana, commented on the news:

"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. 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."

Scott Fulton, Founder & CEO of OpsCruise, added:

"We are thrilled to join forces with Virtana to help deliver on their vision of hybrid infrastructure management. 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."
