Interest in cloud computing and related services is growing rapidly among businesses of all sizes, just ask any of the many industry research firms covering the sector like IDC, Forrester or 451 Research.
A vast number of companies have emerged to meet this demand, all offering a wide array of technology encompassing both hardware and software-based solutions, designed to help businesses adapt to changing customer demands and business economics. While many of these companies have very innovative technology, there is little doubt that the cloud computing/hosted services market is getting fragmented is right for consolidation. One needs only look at any number of recent headlines such as this as evidence. Earlier today, Data Storage Corporation announced it second major acquisition, e-ternity Business Continuity Consultants Inc., an award-wining provider of “pay-as-you go” Infrastructure-as-a-Service (“IaaS”) solutions serving enterprise customers in the financial, educational, manufacturing, professional services and technology industries.
Consecutively named as a “Top 100 Cloud Services Provider” in the annual Talkin Cloud Top 100 Rankings, e-ternity and its core IaaS offering is an ideal complement to Data Storage Corporation’s suite of hosted data protection services. The e-ternity transaction reflects our business strategy of building upon our existing High Availability, Disaster Recovery and data protection and backup offerings with synergistic and market-proven business continuity solutions. Since our first acquisition, DSC back in 2010 which expanded our reach into the large IBM iSeries/AS400 market, we have been building a technology services platform that we believe will provide SMBs with the most complete range of solutions to their most pressing IT challenges, and we are just getting started!
Through our many long-standing partnerships with industry-leading provides such as Asigra and its annual Partner Summit, we have had the opportunity to meet and network with a broad array of companies which we believe represent the future of cloud services technology. As we push ahead with our aggressive roll-up plan, we see a great number of potentially powerful combinations and look forward to capitalizing on the vast potential ahead of us all.
