Managed services provider Datapipe has announced the acquisition of "big data multi-cloud" company GoGrid. Financial details of the deal were not released.
Datapipe, which has corporate offices in New Jersey alongside offices in the United Kingdom and Hong Kong, operates data centers in the United States and in countries like the United Kingdom, Holland, and Iceland. It also operates Asian data centers in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore. Datapipe offers its own cloud solution, known as Stratosphere, and its services focus on "architecting, deploying and managing" multi-platform hybrid IT solutions. Its purchase of GoGrid gives the company access to GoGrid's orchestration and automation solutions.
GoGrid was established in 2013 and provides Big Data infrastructure services such as test and production options for "NoSQL" database technologies. The company caters to around 15,000 customers and has deployed in excess of 600,000 virtual machines. Its proprietary solutions offer customers "1-Button" deployment of Big Data solutions in the cloud.
Datapipe's acquisition of GoGrid underlines the company's commitment to growth in the area of multiple cloud platform integration and management. “GoGrid has made it easy for companies to stand up Big Data solutions quickly,” explained Datapipe's CEO, Robb Allen. “Datapipe customers will achieve significant value from the speed at which we can now create new Big Data projects in the cloud. This acquisition advances Datapipe’s strategy to help our enterprise clients architect, deploy and manage multi-cloud hybrid IT solutions.”
