As part of its worldwide expansion plans, ColoHouse, a Miami-based supplier of colocation and cloud services, has acquired Lume Cloud, a managed cloud services provider offering private cloud, edge data center and hybrid infrastructure solutions. As part of the deal, Lume’s flagship Cloud Anyware product will be acquired, which allows clients to link public and private cloud services and optimize their cloud expenditure for cost, performance, and security.
Lume Cloud has developed over the previous two decades from a typical managed service provider (MSP) to a global leader in cloud and data center solutions. In both the cloud and edge infrastructure arena, Lume’s “strong track record” of providing “industry-leading” technological services has created a potential for “tremendous impact”, stated ColoHouse. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“ColoHouse’s acquisition of Lume Cloud illustrates our vested interest to further enhance our competitive edge in the marketplace, while enabling ColoHouse to offer more diverse geographical connectivity options and cloud solutions combined with world-class support that are essential to our customers,” said Kyle Verzello, CEO of Lume Cloud, who will continue to lead the cloud-based product suites and teams. “Increasingly, location matters for cloud solutions. Private cloud and colocation delivered where customers need infrastructure is a critical component to any cloud strategy. Together, ColoHouse and Lume Cloud have amazing synergies, and with this acquisition we can achieve the next level of growth for our ecosystem.”
Since 2009, ColoHouse has taken advantage of strategic acquisitions and collaborations to become a global leader in data center services. After being acquired by 1547 Critical Systems Realty and Valterra Partners, ColoHouse became a dominant data center and cloud solutions provider, equipped to handle the complex demands of their clients. With more than 24 sites in seven different countries across the world, ColoHouse provides colocation services as well as cloud and dedicated server solutions.
“We’re pleased to welcome Kyle and the Lume team to the ColoHouse family. The technology and data center industry are growing at an unprecedented speed, which requires innovative solutions and expanded capabilities to meet our growing customer demands,” said Paul Bint, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ColoHouse. “Our operational and financial expertise together with our geographic diversity paired with Lume Cloud’s impressive private cloud capabilities, place us in a very powerful up-market position. I couldn’t be more excited about this next phase of our growth as we continue to expand our product offerings and capabilities to address the needs of our evolving cloud-based clients.”
