VMware Goes On Buying Spree, Acquires Veriflow In Its Sixth Known Deal This Year

Crunchbase | August 19, 2019

In a blog, VMware said the buy should “strengthen its capabilities in the pervasive network monitoring, troubleshooting, and verification space.” Veriflow’s product aims to help predict outages before they happen as well as “vulnerabilities before they are exploited.” Per VMware, Veriflow’s technology “provides problem detection for critical network issues (physical and virtual).”Founded in 2013, San Jose-based Veriflow had raised $11.1 million in funding over its lifetime, according to Crunchbase data. Its last raise was a July 2016 $8.2 million Series A that was led by Menlo Ventures and also included participation from New Enterprise Associates (NEA). As you can see in the chart below, VMware has stepped up the pace of its acquisitions over the past two years. Its recent pattern seems to be buying smaller companies with little or no venture backing. Besides Veriflow, it has also acquired or announced plans to acquireUhana, Bitfusion.io (which had raised $8.3 million), Avi Networks, Bitnami, and AetherPal(which had raised $6 million).

Optima Domi Selects ManageXR to Scale Its Virtual Reality School

ManageXR | February 17, 2022

ManageXR, an enterprise device management platform designed for VR and AR devices, announced that it will serve as the exclusive device management solution for Optima Domi, the VR-first charter school set to "open its doors" later this year in Florida. Optima Domi is expecting an enrollment of 1,300 students for its inaugural 2022-2023 school year, with more students and grades to be added in the future. As a VR-first experience, students will spend four hours daily in interactive, virtual lessons - by way of Oculus headsets - designed to transform the way they learn. With ManageXR, Optima Domi can manage every single headset with fully remote technical support to ensure that students are accessing only the intended content and that their education remains uninterrupted by any technical glitches. Optima Domi is offering something unlike anything we've seen in education - with immersive lesson formats that can literally bring students back in time for history class or transport them to different galaxies for science. However, scaling a VR deployment of this size comes with unique technical and logistical challenges, and our platform will be working behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly for hundreds of students at once." Luke Wilson, founder and CEO of ManageXR Ahead of the school year, ManageXR is coordinating closely with Optima Domi and Engage, which powers the software for the school's curriculum, to think through the challenges associated with large-scale VR deployments. Because the platform enables Optima Domi to control every aspect of its VR device fleet remotely, including distributing apps and files, customizing the home screen user experience and tracking device health and usage, students can be ready to learn as soon as they receive their headsets in the mail. "Selecting ManageXR as Optima's headset management platform partner ensures that we will be able to provide a safe and secure VR environment for our scholars," said Adam Mangana, Executive Director of Optima Domi. "ManageXR gives us the ability to manage, monitor and secure our headsets so that our scholars experience in VR only what the academy determines is necessary for its classical curriculum and lets us keep them in a reliable learning environment." About ManageXR ManageXR solves the challenge of working with XR at scale. Whether you are managing one device or thousands, ManageXR enables users to distribute content, customize the user experience, maintain security, and troubleshoot devices, all in just a few clicks. ManageXR is based in San Francisco, California.
