VMware Sued over Optimization in Virtual Environments

April 26, 2019

Cirba Inc. (d/b/a Densify) and Cirba IP, Inc. (collectively, “Densify”) have filed suit against Dell (VMware) (1:19-cv-00742) over the provision of “vRealize Operations (‘vROps’), Distributed Resource Scheduler (‘DRS’), and other related products and services”, which offer optimization in virtual environments. The plaintiffs assert two patents, the first generally related to the management of virtualized environments; the second, to monitoring resource utilization or performance data and visualizing the risk of infrastructure overload. Densify also pleads claims for unfair competition under the Lanham Act, for deceptive trade practices under Delaware law, and for common law trademark infringement (involving the use of “Densify Marks” “densify”, “densification”, and “densifying”).
