Opvizor, Inc, a leader in predictive analysis and issue prevention in virtual datacenter environments, has raised follow-on financing from USA and European investors to enable the company to further grow sales in the USA and Europe. The company has already built an impressive customer base in Europe with sales of its Software-as-a-Service solution growing at over 100% year over year.

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Opvizor, Inc offers solutions for healthchecking and optimizing VMware environments to growing clientele, including some of the largest European and U.S. companies.

With virtualization and cloud computing becoming more critical to enterprise operations in the U.S., the need for strong tools to ensure optimization has grown significantly. Accordingly, this capital increase is the natural next step for Opvizor. “Our robust solution has much to offer to organizations using VMware vSphere solutions. We are hiring aggressively and I am excited about opportunities this financing brings,” said Dennis Zimmer, CEO of Opvizor Inc.

The capital increase was subscribed by previous investors Gamma Capital Partners, and new investors Texas Atlantic Capital, and Wellington Partners. Moshe Bar, General Partners of Texas Atlantic Capital has taken a seat on the board of directors of Opvizor, Inc as part of the investment.

At the same time, Opvizor, Inc has appointed Mr. Kevin Klausmeyer to the board as an independent director to contribute to the company’s next phase of growth. Mr. Klausmeyer commented, “I am excited to work with a fast-growing software company with strong technology and vision. Opvizor has great leadership, and its solution has already been well-received by many notable customers.”

Mr. Klausmeyer currently serves on the boards of CallidusCloud, a publicly-held, “lead-to-money” - SaaS based, sales and marketing automation company, Unitrends, a leading data protection technology company focused on virtual and physical environments and Staminus Communications, a provider of DDoS attack detection and mitigation solutions. He also served on the board of Sourcefire and Quest Software, and worked on their respective sales to Cisco and Dell.
