Canadian-based colocation, managed services and cloud provider CentriLogic announced on Monday it has acquired Canadian managed hosting and IT services provider The Capris Group for an undisclosed amount.
The move comes a few months after CentriLogic opened a new data center in Hong Kong.
The Capris Group’s business will be “combined with CentriLogic’s existing data center solutions to create a new business unit focused on delivering application and platform management services to new and current customers,” according to the press release.
Additionally, CentriLogic will add other data center and disaster recovery space to its existing infrastructure footprint in the Greater Toronto Area.
The acquisition of The Capris Group better positions CentriLogic in the global web hosting market, providing hybrid hosting, business continuity and disaster recovery, and devOps solutions to local and international customers.
“The Capris Group’s team has 17 years of experience delivering comprehensive services to its entire client base, including several of Canada’s major financial institutions that have stringent uptime and service delivery requirements,” said Robert Offley, CentriLogic’s president and CEO. “We will leverage The Capris Group’s existing expertise to better fulfill our customer’s complex hosting and application management requirements, ultimately creating synergies throughout our core service offerings to facilitate the growth of our business locally and internationally.”
CentriLogic will integrate into its current services The Capris Group’s entire range of offerings, including application and platform management, managed hosting, development, and colocation.
The acquisition also includes The Capris Group’s staff, its existing office and data centers, and all current customer contracts.
CentriLogic will maintain The Capris Group’s 15,000 square foot data center and disaster recovery area in Mississauga, Ontario.
The facility will be used to service The Capris Group’s existing customer base, as well as accommodating CentriLogic’s global headquarters in Canada and data centers throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.
