Virtustream Inc, a privately held infrastructure services firm, has closed a $25m funding round led by Virginia-based Columbia Capital and Miami-based Blue Lagoon Capital.
Virtustream delivers infrastructure solutions through virtualisation using its proprietary platform.
“Virtustream has deep virtualization experience, breadth & depth of highly scalable services, strategic alliances with key hardware and software partners as well as unique business and pricing models making them a compelling alternative to larger firms,” said Rodney Rogers, CEO of Blue Lagoon Capital.
Virtustream also recently completed the acquisition of VirtualizeIT, the premier European consultancy practice dedicated to the advancement and adoption of virtualization technologies, and Brigh Technologies, the leading North American provider for the design and deployment of custom solutions in the virtualisation space.
“Virtustream’s strategy is to fold VirtualizeIT and Brigh’s recognised virtualisation services leadership into our existing capabilities to continue to build out our proprietary platform,” said Kevin Reid, CEO of Virtustream. “The platform will harness years of experience gained from thousands of successful physical to virtual transformations performed by both entities, leveraging the tools and historical data collected from those environments.”
Since its inception in 1989, Columbia Capital has invested in enterprise IT, wireless, broadband and media.
Founded in 2008, Blue Lagoon Capital is a niche private equity company focused on infrastructure and energy management technologies.
