Co-Founder of Virtugo leaves for CA

In April 2007 the US startup Virtugo was acquired by uXcomm. After two months uXcomm decided to drop its name and use the Virtugo one.

Less than one year since the acquisition the Co-Founder of Virtugo (the acquired one), Chris Dickson, leaves the company to become Vice President at CA.

So far CA has been one of those (few) big IT vendors that didn’t heavily invest in virtualization, but the recent efforts in pushing virtualization surveys are signs of an upcoming change.

It’s possible that Dickson was hired to arrange a major overhaul in the company strategy. Mostly considering that competitors like HP, IBM and BMC are not expected to stay quite for much longer.
