Green House Data, a cloud hosting and colocation services provider with energy efficient, green data centers located across the U.S., has announced the acquisition of Ajubeo – a Denver-based provider of infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solutions, including public, private, and hybrid cloud products. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Ajubeo was founded in 2011 by two technology industry veterans. They saw a market opportunity to deliver cloud infrastructure solutions to CIOs in large enterprise organizations. The company grew rapidly and expanded the customer portfolio across multiple geographies and industries.
The cloud acquisition is the second M&A activity this year for Green House Data, which expanded to Atlanta and Dallas after acquiring Cirracore in April of 2017. In May, the company announced a 16M credit facility financed by Post Road group and an equity raise.
“We are continuing to execute on our aggressive growth strategy through strategic acquisition as well as new logo growth,” said Shawn Mills, President and CEO of Green House Data. “We’re now even better positioned to serve Denver and wider Front Range companies with high-touch, customer-focused cloud solutions while adding another edge location option for our existing customers.”
Ajubeo’s infrastructure is powered by VMware’s vSphere virtualization platform. Ajubeo was funded by Grey Mountain Partners, a large private equity firm in Boulder, Colorado with more than $400M in assets under management.
Along with growth via acquisition, Green House Data has invested in new data centers, cloud deployments, and personnel to expand services throughout the United States. Founded in 2007, the company has increased its data center footprint from a single facility to over 100,000 square feet of colocation white space in eleven facilities, with access to more than 250 carriers, service providers, and content providers in “premier” data centers and interconnection points across the United States.
“Legacy Ajubeo clients can expect improved customer experience, increased product variety, and more options for geographic resiliency and targeted service delivery,” said Cortney Thompson, Chief Information Officer (CIO) of Green House Data. “In addition, our newly launched SpotLITE engagement for compliance and security-focused enterprises should add another layer of value.”
All Green House Data offerings include a 100% Service Level Agreement (SLA) and compliance standards such as HIPAA, SSAE 18 Type II, and PCI-DSS. The company also participates in EPA’s green power program.
