The shift from client-server to cloud computing creates massive opportunity in the IT management marketplace
Reston, VA (PRWEB) April 7, 2010
ScienceLogic, a leading IT operations and cloud monitoring provider, announces the closing of a growth equity investment from New Enterprise Associates (NEA). As one of the fastest growing companies in the United States, privately-held ScienceLogic will leverage this cash infusion to immediately capitalize on the huge disruption in the marketplace as service providers and enterprises embrace cloud computing. This is the first institutional round of investment for the high-growth company.
“From day one, we have built a comprehensive, scalable solution that monitors all of the infrastructure components that make up IT service delivery,” said David Link, CEO and co-founder of ScienceLogic. “Service providers have always needed this solution, and more enterprises are realizing that they need this critical piece as they make the move to build private clouds and utilize more public and hybrid cloud resources. With this funding, we aim to transform ScienceLogic into the company you turn to first, because we have already solved this problem for some of the most demanding enterprises and service providers.”
ScienceLogic's award winning EM7 solutions offer robust service provider features – from multi-tenancy to chargeback based on actual resource utilization to integrated physical and virtual systems monitoring – that are now critical components of any true private cloud monitoring solution. EM7 solutions are additionally designed to monitor datacenter resources, mobile and remote assets and public and hybrid cloud resources all from a single console.
“The shift from client-server to cloud computing creates massive opportunity in the IT management marketplace,” said Jon Sakoda, partner at New Enterprise Associates. “There will be new winners who can move fast and provide the best technologies to help enterprises tackle these new challenges. We believe ScienceLogic is positioned to be a leader in this space, cutting through the cloud hype with a proven solution designed from the ground-up to manage private cloud and hybrid environments.
