IT virtualization infrastructure software company VM6 Software has secured a $4 million series A round of investment with RBC Venture Partners and Ignition Partners. The investors are both getting a seat on the board of directors (Rich Fade and Jean-David Begin from Ignition and RBC, respectively).
In addition, VM6 has announced that industry veteran Stephen Pollack, who founded PlateSpin back in 2003 (and sold it to Novell for $205 million in cash 5 years later), has joined the company's board as well.
The investment from RBC and Ignition will be used to expand VM6 Software's customer base, future software development and marketing and sales efforts worldwide.
The company's VMex software offers businesses an all-in-one IT infrastructure solution that leverages the benefits of virtualization to manage, provision, consolidate and protect distributed servers and desktop environments.
VM6 recently joined the Microsoft BizSpark One program, and announced the general availability of its VM6 VMex Enterprise Edition, which leverages Microsoft's Hyper-V to combine virtualization with shared storage, clustering, and management and monitoring solutions.
VM6 Software is headquartered in Montreal, Canada with a primary business office in Toronto.
