Virtana – Why Work With Us?

About Us Header Image

Our Story

Virtana is an exciting, high-growth Silicon Valley technology company. Since our founding in 2008, we’ve been focused on delivering unparalleled value to our customers through a combination of innovative technology and high-value services.  We have helped to solve some of the most critical IT performance and availability issues in more than 500 of the world’s largest data centers.  Our unwavering commitment to our customers’ success has fueled our growth, and it continues to drive the ongoing development of our award-winning application-centric Infrastructure Performance Management platform, VirtualWisdom.

In March 2016, we merged with Load DynamiX, the leading storage performance analytics company. Load DynamiX (now WorkloadWisdom) provides unique insight into application workload performance that empowers data storage professionals to optimize costs and assure performance by more intelligently deploying and troubleshooting storage infrastructure. The combination of advanced workload analysis and modeling software with extreme workload generation appliances give IT professionals the ability to cost-effectively validate and stress today’s most complex physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure to its limits.

In October 2016, we acquired Xangati, a leader in virtual and cloud infrastructure performance monitoring.  When combined with the VirtualWisdom and WorkloadWisdom performance analytics platforms, Virtana offers the most comprehensive performance monitoring and optimization platform for the hybrid data center.  We are now the leading infrastructure performance management and analytics company, servicing the world’s most business-critical IT infrastructure as it evolves in the software-defined era.

    I have been working at Virtana full-time (Less than a year)


    Amazingly engineered, category-leading products, and a deep, genuine commitment to customer success and satisfaction. This is a company that has quietly and deliberately built a phenomenal set of products, around a warm, family-like culture, and has the overall feeling of a rocket ship about to take off.


    This is not a con at all. But as a smaller, fast-growing company, every body counts. If you're a "big company" person, you'd better be willing to roll up your sleeves.

    One hour phone interview
    and the interviewer was nice and helpful,
    I got a call within ten days after applying.
     The interviewer asked about my projects in brief and then started with the coding interview. He had a few minutes of the interview reserved for any questions about the company
