This summer wrapped up in a whirlwind of excitement, as we acquired Adapt, a leading UK Managed Cloud Services provider and Advanced AWS consulting partner. With Adapt joining the Datapipe team we will increase our scale and service capabilities in the United Kingdom, and provide Adapt clients with access to the broader European market as well as Asia and North America. We’re confident this strategic business decision will provide significant value to our clients, old and new.
A bit of background on Adapt: the company specializes in agile hybrid solutions that deliver the best of public and private cloud to clients as a single service. The company was founded in 2001 and has multiple offices in the London metropolitan area. Adapt’s mission to deliver a great managed service experience aligns well with our client commitment and approach to the market. Together, we’ll continue to expand our global scope and reach to the benefit of the enterprises we serve.
A Look Back
This is the third big move for us in the past year and a half, with the acquisition of AWS migration and assessment company DualSpark back in September, as well as the acquisition of Big Data multi-cloud pioneer GoGrid in January 2015. As a result of those business moves, our clients have seen benefits from the speed at which we can migrate complex workloads to the cloud and create new big data projects.
Similar to the past two acquisitions, acquiring Adapt provides us with enhanced capabilities to be our clients’ true partner on their journey to the cloud. As the deal analysis from 451 Research explains it:
Enterprise challenges in moving to the hybrid cloud are well documented, and Datapipe believes the combined companies’ additional skills and capabilities will be better positioned to ease migration concerns and land additional business for managing customer workloads in and between the cloud.
Through Datapipe’s global datacenter footprint, Adapt clients now have inroads to the rest of Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North Amercia. To learn more about this news, please see the full release here and to learn more about Adapt, please visit http://www.adapt.com/.
