Vintela Gets Minority Investment from Microsoft

Vintela, a maker of integration solutions for linking Unix and Linux systems into Microsoft infrastructures, got a major endorsement from Microsoft when the software giant took a minority stake in the company and entered commercial and licensing agreements.

"We've always enjoyed a close relationship with Microsoft. Customers who have a substantial investment in Microsoft-based management tools normally want to integrate their non-Windows systems to avoid duplication, etc. We offer a more complete solution," Dave Wilson, president of Vintela, said in a statement.

In a statement provided for Vintela's announcement, Microsoft corporate vice president Kirill Tatarinov, who runs Microsoft's enterprise management division, said the agreements "formalize an already strong relationship for the benefit of enterprise customers worldwide."

A key element of the agreements is Microsoft's decision, first discussed by Vintela a few months ago, to support Vintela solutions through Microsoft Product Support.

Vintela's software is based on Microsoft technologies such as Systems Management Server, Active Directory, Group Policy and Services for Unix. It allows for the integration with those Microsoft technologies of various platforms, including Unix, Linux, Mac and Java systems.
