We got an interesting comment on our report on Qlusters calling it quits, which points us to the fact that the website of Virtugo Software has been down for some time. Commenter Blocka suspects the company has gone belly-up, since the phones have been disconnected and e-mails remain unanswered.
Virtugo Software had a powerful virtual management suite called VirtualSuite, enabling system administrators to monitor host and virtual servers in real-time as well as optimize the performance of applications running on the servers in the virtual environment. In April 2007, Virtugo was acquired by uXcomm, who changed its name in Virtugo Software, and in September 2007 they shipped an upgraded version of VirtualSuite, which got quite some positive reviews. The company also subsequently raised about $2 million in venture capital.
After that, it got a little quiet around Virtugo Software, with the exception of a Network World review of VirtualSuite in February 2008. Then one of the co-founders left the company to become a Vice President at Computer Associates last March. Apparently, Chris Dickson fled a sinking ship.
We have an e-mail in with the company for a response, and well update this post if we get an answer.
If anyone has more information, get in touch.
