AppFormix Promises Better Orchestration of VMs and Docker Containers

AppFormix, a start-up based in San Jose, California emerged from stealth mode to unveil its platform for managing the physical infrastructure and orchestrating virtual machines and Docker containers by leverating OpenStack, Kubernetes and Mesos.

The company said its goal is to create a fully optimized software-defined data center by bridging the gap between application requirements and the underlying resources. The AppFormix software solution provides developers, operators, and DevOps teams with the ability to monitor, analyze and control how applications consume cloud resources in real-time. AppFormix is currently in beta, and will be generally available in Q3 2015.

AppFormix also announced $7 million in series A funding from top tier venture capital firm, August Capital.

"Siloed tools for different types of infrastructure are yesterday's technology. The future is about real-time infrastructure visibility and the convergence of all tools and teams across the IT department,” said Sumeet Singh, founder and CEO of AppFormix. “Cloud infrastructure is shared infrastructure. By providing application-level visibility of the infrastructure and programmatically controlling how applications use the shared infrastructure AppFormix is enabling a more economical, reliable and agile software defined data center.”
