CloudOps, a cloud consulting, managed services, and software firm established in Montreal, Canada, and specialising in open source, cloud native platforms, networking, and DevOps, has been acquired by Aptum, a hybrid multi-cloud managed service provider. Aptum will be able to provide its clients in 43 countries with full hybrid multi-cloud solutions and services, including enhanced cloud migration services and DevOps, thanks to this strategic purchase.
Since 2005, CloudOps has developed from a managed services provider for operations to become a market leader in cloud computing, cloud networking, and DevOps solutions. To give clients stronger, more efficient solutions and services, Aptum plans to keep a separate CloudOps division inside the company while combining several teams, such as Advisory and Consulting Services, Support Services, and DevOps.
“Aptum has been on a transformational journey over the last three years; we have not missed a beat on our focus to bring new products and service delivery models to enable the best hybrid multi-cloud solutions to market,” said Susan Bowen, CEO and President of Aptum Group. “We’re excited to add CloudOps’ talented team and its services portfolio to the Aptum family. This strategic move will extend our ability to serve our customers with solutions such as DevOps and Advanced Cloud Migration Services, offering true Hybrid Multi-Cloud solutions and services at different stages of their digital transformation.”
The management and staff of CloudOps will join Aptum, and its Montreal headquarters will remain.
“Over the last two years of collaborating with Aptum to offer Managed DevOps services, we have successfully joined forces to help customers accelerate their application platform engineering and operational excellence in the cloud,” said Ian Rae, Founder and CEO of CloudOps, who will join Aptum’s Executive Leadership Team as President and CEO, CloudOps & CloudMC. “Aptum has invested heavily in its business assurance and Cloud Advisory and Consulting practice, and we are thrilled to be a part of the organization and to benefit from its global sales, marketing, and support services. We look forward to helping more customers across a wide range of industries to own their own destinies in the clouds™ unlocking the true value of cloud solutions for their businesses.”
By utilising CloudMC’s edge orchestration technology, which is API-driven, modular, and extendable, Aptum will improve its Hybrid Cloud Management Portal. It will hasten the creation of a single point of integration for managing hybrid multi-cloud workloads.
The combined capabilities of the two businesses will also increase product prospects outside of the telecoms industry, such as in the media and communications, retail, financial services, manufacturing, energy and utilities, hospitality, education, and transportation sectors. This purchase will strengthen Aptum’s vendor-neutral strategy, solutions, and offerings across several clouds, including Azure (Aptum just received the Microsoft Azure Expert MSP Certification), AWS, Google, Hypertec Cloud, and Cox Edge, across Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
A deal was made, and it was finalised on January 5, 2023. The deal’s financial details won’t be released.
