Service Express, a global provider of data center and infrastructure solutions based in the U.S., has acquired cloud hosting company iInTheCloud and managed services provider iTech Solutions Group. The acquisitions give Service Express clients in the U.S. access to more IBM-specific solutions and IBM Gold Business Partner credentials. Through this agreement, the company will be able to provide full solutions to clients worldwide by replicating its existing IBM services, knowledge, and IBM Gold Business Partner certification in the UK.
As an IBM Gold Business Partner with headquarters in Connecticut, iTech has more than 20 years of experience providing skilled solutions. The business has assisted clients in utilizing IBM I infrastructure techniques by collaborating with businesses in the financial services, manufacturing, and retail sectors.
With the acquisition of iTech, a group of trained technical consultants, IBM I system administrators, and knowledgeable technicians with an in-depth knowledge of IBM Power Systems are now part of Service Express.
“At iTech, we take pride in our dedication to the success of our people and customers,” said Pete Massiello, President at iTech Solutions Group. “Joining Service Express gives us the ability to expand our service offerings to existing and new customers, which was challenging as a smaller organization. I’m looking forward to working with the Service Express team to create synergy and bring our solutions to more companies around the globe.”
By employing the iInTheCloud infrastructure, iTech offers clients IBM I cloud hosting solutions in addition to hardware solutions, consultancy, and managed services. For businesses running IBM I AIX, and PowerLinux, iInTheCloud is a cloud hosting company with Tier III data centers built on IBM Power Systems. They offer safe, scalable, and robust solutions.
To provide business continuity and disaster recovery, enterprises can host production, test, development, or replica environments using iInTheCloud. Companies have access to redundant power, cooling, and communication sources through the company’s data centers in Michigan, assuring highly available environments.
“My focus has always been on creating flexible, reliable, and scalable solutions for IBM i and Power System customers around the Midwest,” said Larry Bolhuis, Co-President of iInTheCloud. “With Service Express’ headquarters only minutes from our data centers, the company has been the go-to service provider for many of our customers, as well as for iInTheCloud since its inception. I’m excited to expand our support options and capabilities for our new and existing customers.”
For customers to sustain and advance their digital IT initiatives, Service Express offers a wide range of services, including infrastructure, managed, and data center maintenance. Financials details of these two acquisitions were not disclosed.
“The acquisition of iTech and iInTheCloud accelerate the expansion of our managed and infrastructure service offerings to the U.S.,” said Ron Alvesteffer, President and CEO at Service Express. “We anticipate strong company growth as we continue to broaden and diversify our solutions, bringing a wider portfolio of services to customers in the U.S. and U.K.”
