Global cloud services provider Zettagrid has acquired Perth Infrastructure as a Services provider Silverain Technology.

Zettagrid says that as part of the acquisition it has inherited two new data centre zones in Perth.

Zettagrid’s Nicholas Power said Silverain was a dedicated IaaS provider in Perth, with customers in the mining, oil and gas industries.

“For some time we've recognised the great work undertaken by the Silverain team and have been impressed with what they have achieved. When the opportunity arose to acquire the business we saw some great synergies and decided to acquire the business. They utilise very similar technologies including VMware, Veeam, DELL and so are a great fit into our ecosystem,” Power said.

“Interestingly, 2010 must have been the year to create cloud companies as Silverain began life four months after Zettagrid. However Silverain took a different approach to cloud and focused on providing dedicated private clouds for mid-tier and enterprise customers. Zettagrid has traditionally implemented the large scale shared model however the dedicated instance (almost bare metal) approach is something that many customers and partners have asked about.

“There are positives for both types of cloud implementations. Typically this is cost vs resiliency and flexibility but this acquisition will certainly equip us with some further experience to develop some new offerings around dedicated clouds.”
