Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, has acquired a 51% stake in NubeliU, a company specialising in cloud computing projects based on OpenStack. The acquisition is part of Logicalis’ strategy to position itself as a cloud integrator, and strengthens its commitment with the opensource community, in particular with OpenStack, which is essential for large SDx and cloud computing projects.
NubeliU was founded in January 2015 by the team that deployed the first production clouds in OpenStack. As a services company, NubeliU integrates OpenStack environments with customers’ existing platforms across multiple vendor product lines. From its operations in Argentina and Brazil, it can remotely deliver its service offerings around the globe, and this acquisition forms the basis for establishing a Logicalis Global OpenStack practice.
Mark Rogers, CEO Logicalis comments, "We are convinced that OpenStack will be one of the foundations for the ICT future infrastructure. It is a platform that allows management and orchestration of hybrid environments in public and private clouds, ensuring a safe and transparent operation for corporate clients. This acquisition brings us the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to position Logicalis as the best placed organisation, to deliver cloud projects to our customers”.
NubeliU's expertise in OpenStack will accelerate the global expansion of Logicalis' cloud computing and SDx practices, strengthening its position as a cloud integrator and ensuring its ability to meet its customers' requirements on their journey to digital transformation.
