Toronto, Ontario – April 25, 2019 – Densify, a leader in public and private cloud optimization, filed a patent infringement lawsuit against VMware today. The lawsuit claims infringement on VMware’s vRealize Operations Manager, vROps 7.0/7.5, its flagship product for optimization of private cloud infrastructure. The patents asserted by Densify cover technology and capabilities that optimize how software applications utilize computing resources in the cloud and on-premise data centers. The Complaint explains how VMware infringes Densify’s patents and is copying Densify’s trademarked name and key elements of its user-interface.

We filed this lawsuit to defend the innovations and intellectual property Densify brings to market.”
