Unitas Global, the hybrid cloud solutions provider, has acquired cloud adoption specialists Solinea for an undisclosed amount.
With Solinea’s experience as experts in enterprise hybrid cloud adoption strategies, Untias says that the addition of the Solinea team will solidify its position as a ‘trusted advisor and partner to its clients’.
“By acquiring Solinea, Unitas Global enhances its ability to deliver targeted business outcomes in partnership with our clients, expanding beyond our current core competencies as an infrastructure-focused service provider,” explained Patrick Shutt, CEO of Unitas Global. “This will immediately give our clients a single trusted partner to help with cloud strategy enablement, adoption, and cloud infrastructure management.”
This new acquisition will enable Unitas Global to provide its customers with seamless cloud adoption for end-to-end hybrid cloud solution and together the two will be able to solve common adoption problems such as transforming legacy IT solutions, embracing cultural challenges and addressing skillset gaps.
“In addition to developing cloud adoption strategies, the Solinea acquisition brings new services to the Unitas Global offering. These include multi-cloud design and implementation, container and microservices (Kubernetes) enablement, managed DevOps-as-a-Service, CI/CD pipeline tooling and management, and application migration expertise,” adds Grant Kirkwood, CTO of Unitas Global. “We plan to build on these services to create a next-generation cloud transformation platform for our enterprise clients.”
By using the combined capabilities of the two companies, clients will benefit from increased innovations as they move towards cloud adoption. The additional services Unitas are able to provide, the company says is key to building an transformational cloud platform and results in a next-generation end-to-end cloud service partner for Unitas’ enterprise clients.
Commenting on the acquisition, Francesco Paola, CEO of Solinea, said: “Solinea’s offerings together with Unitas Global’s expertise will deliver an integrated set of capabilities that will enable our clients to continuously innovate as they fully embrace the cloud. This unique opportunity places Unitas in the optimal position to provide clients the expertise they need to accelerate and simplify their cloud adoption strategies.”
Earlier this year Unitas Global partnered with Connected2Fiber to deploy The Connected World SaaS platform. The platform will enable Unitas to manage and transform connectivity market data, and Unitas will use multiple connectivity intelligence tools, building list manager, network finder and availability engine API, to enhance its cloud connectivity offering.
