Dimension Data Acquires OpSource
Dimension Data last week said it has acquired OpSource, a provider of cloud hosting and managed services. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Based in Johannesburg, Dimension Data is a huge $4.7 billion global systems integrator and reseller. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NTT Holdings. Santa Clara-based OpSource provides cloud hosting and management services to more than 600 enterprises, service providers and SaaS-based ISVs.
OpSource will be moved into Dimension Data's Cloud Solutions Business unit, which reports directly to company CEO Brett Dawson.
"Our decision to accelerate our focus on cloud services aligns to our long-standing strategy to become a services-led business," Dawson said in a statement. "OpSource brings a rich set of services, a sound cloud architecture, and extensive experience in cloud services that will meet immediate client needs -- in addition to a cloud infrastructure which supports development and growth in this space. We believe OpSource provides us with an accelerated time-to-market as their infrastructure and services are well-established and tested."
