December 4, 2018, Austin, TX — Neverfail announced it has entered into a definitive agreement for Online Tech, a leading provider of secure, compliant private, hybrid and multi-cloud solutions for service providers, channel partners and enterprise organizations, to acquire Neverfail’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and data protection services. The acquisition includes Neverfail’s 8 cloud nodes and assets in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
As part of the deal, the two companies have entered into an ongoing strategic partnership in which Online Tech will become Neverfail’s preferred cloud provider for their software solutions. The acquisition and agreement allows Neverfail to focus exclusively on continuous improvement on its software solutions while partnering with Online Tech to provide the ongoing cloud infrastructure for compliant sensitive customers requiring a high level of confidence in their cloud solutions.
In addition, Online Tech will now offer expanded managed services for existing customers and resellers that complement their current cloud, collocation, disaster recovery and security solutions. These include a partner-centric private cloud, enhanced data protection (with offsite backup powered by Veeam®), Neverfail Workspaces virtual desktop service, Neverfail HybriStor, and Neverfail Continuity Engine.
“The Neverfail cloud services acquisition is an exciting step in Online Tech’s journey of growth. It demonstrates both the commitment and capabilities we have to enable business transformation and the modernization of critical infrastructure around the globe,” said Brad Cheedle, CEO of Online Tech. “With our latest announcement, we are better positioned than ever to earn our place as one of the most respected cloud providers in the world.”
