Xangati Announces New CEO, New Funding

Xangati, a start-up based in San Jose, California, named S. "Sundi" Sundaresh as its new president and CEO.

Xangati provides workload performance management dashboards for cloud and virtual desktop environments.  Its solutions proactively track the health of key IT metrics that impact the performance of applications and users, accurately diagnose the cause of any performance bottleneck and recommend remedial action when a bottleneck is discovered. Customers include enterprises, government agencies, healthcare organizations, educational systems and cloud providers.

Sundaresh has served as an advisor to Xangati since early 2013. He has also served as advisor to numerous technology companies and as a board member of GridGain and SandForce.  Previously, Sundaresh was the president and CEO of Adaptec, Candera (an enterprise storage virtualization) and Jetstream Communications (voice over broadband).

Earlier this month, the company announced $11 million in new funding.
