Evoque Data Center Solutions has kicked off a new Multi-Generational Infrastructure™ (MGI) strategy by acquiring Foghorn Consulting, Inc.

As part of the strategy, the deal will see Foghorn serve as Evoque’s cloud engineering arm, delivering additional value for Evoque’s clients worldwide. It further expands Evoque's applications-first suite of services, and will also provide "future forward companies with the best of cloud and colocation solutions".

Foghorn, a Silicon Valley-based provider of cloud consulting and cloud engineering services, was established in 2008 and delivers Infrastructure as Code, CI/CD pipelines, and self-healing environments for companies ranging from innovative start-ups to global SaaS companies and the Fortune 100.

“Over the past 13 years, Foghorn has built an enviable reputation as an innovative cloud engineering leader with exceptional customer service, cloud expertise and winning culture,” said Andy Stewart, President and CEO at Evoque Data Center Solutions.

Foghorn will continue to operate independently as a subsidiary of Evoque.

Combining colocation, connectivity and cloud expertise gives Evoque and Foghorn the ability to deliver application-first technology solutions, rich with business benefits for our customers around the world.”
