Zadara, an edge cloud services provider, has acquired Brazil-based technology provider and its exclusive Brazilian distributor, ZVS, in a bid to expand its presence in the Latin American (LATAM) market. The acquisition would enable Zadara to better serve service providers and enterprises in Brazil and throughout the region.
With over 500 Points of Presence (PoPs) across 24 countries, Zadara offers “enterprise-grade” full-stack services, EC2-compatible compute, networking, and storage globally, allowing customers to leverage fully managed, distributed cloud architecture without investing in additional hardware, technology, or human capital. Financial terms of the ZVS acquisition were not disclosed.
In a statement, Zadara CEO and co-founder Nelson Nahum said, “Brazil is a strategically important market and a great source of talent for us, and we are committed to providing local service providers and enterprises with the scalability, security, sustainability, and end-to-end infrastructure they need to succeed in today’s fast-paced digital economy.”
Through automated end-to-end infrastructure provisioning of compute, storage, and network resources, Zadara’s cloud services platform would simplify operational complexity, making it an attractive solution for companies that require low latency and high-performance elastic cloud services.
ZVS General Manager, Robson Andrade, said, “Merging structures with Zadara represents a significant investment in our local market and a commitment to delivering even greater value and improved experience to our customers. With the combined resources and expertise, we will continue to provide comprehensive cloud solutions while continuing to invest locally in Latin America to drive innovation and growth.”
Expand Customer Base LATAM Region
Zadara’s acquisition of ZVS would represent the beginning of its increased investments and momentum in the LATAM region. Brazil, particularly São Paulo, is known for its technology expertise and talent, and ongoing investments in infrastructure supporting innovation. With a new expanded team of solution architects, engineers, DevOps practitioners, and marketing executives, Zadara expects to significantly increase its technological reach and customer base over the coming year.
Zadara’s edge cloud services are leveraged by innovative companies in healthcare, manufacturing, media and entertainment, financial services, and technology sectors, among others. With solutions available on-premises and through cloud and colocation providers, Zadara’s turnkey hardware/software, combined with its pay-only-for-what-you-use model, helps companies gain agility without sacrificing the features and functionality that enterprise IT teams demand.
Zadara operates worldwide, including clouds in hundreds of data centers at public- and private-cloud partners, with an expert team that provides “follow-the-sun” services. The company is headquartered in Irvine, California, with locations in Cirencester, England; Tokyo, Japan; Tel Aviv and Yokneam, Israel; Bangalore, India; and São Paulo, Brazil.
