DataPipe Inc Acquires UK-Based Adapt Cloud Firm

This acquisition aims at the extending of high quality cloud computing services with world class customer support of DataPipe to the European clients.

DataPipe Cloud FirmGreatResponder.com  It was announced by DataPipe Inc through an official press release that it was going to acquire the UK based cloud computing firm Adapt. This announcement was made on Thursday through two press releases – one issued by Adapt cloud firm and the other issued by the DataPipe Inc. The DataPipe Inc is a cloud computing service provider company. The Adapt firm is also an Amazon AWS partner in the UK market.

This acquisition took place after the Brexit poles in June 2016. Many people were so skeptical about the cloud computing business in the UK after its separation from the European Union.  In the press release statement, the financial terms and conditions for this acquisition were not disclosed.

While terming the acquisition of Adapt as a ‘Non-disruptive additions’, the CEO of DataPipe Inc, Mr. Robb Allen in his official statement said, “Adapt and Datapipe both have cultures that focus on proactive, high touch customer service and a commitment to customer-specific solutions designed to meet clients’ individual business challenges. Our similar approach to guiding clients on their cloud journey makes the acquisition a natural fit for us and will increase our scale and service capabilities in the United Kingdom, and the broader European market.”

While talking about the merger of the Adapt Firm in the DataPipe, the CEO of the Adapt, Mr. Steward Smythe in his official statement said, “We are seeing emerging customer requirements for a tactical and strategic presence overseas, so it makes sense for us to advance the UK’s capability in a global market rather than create more bulky domestic organizations. UK-only consolidations in our space can get very messy and can be short-sighted. We have chosen a far more exciting path.”

It is very important to note that many experts in the domain of IT industry have been talking about the future of the cloud computing and data center business in the United Kingdom post Brexit vote. But, their skepticism is proving to be wrong at this moment. For instance, the AWS has recently confirmed that its plans for the UK based data centers will not change and they will be completed as per earlier schedule.

The healthy competitive environment of the UK will further improve in the domain of cloud business with this acquisition.
