DRaaS acquisition brings total company headcount to 30

DUBLIN, IRELAND – August 5, 2015 — / — Managed connectivity and cloud computing provider Strencom has acquired disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) specialist Storage Online in a deal which will increase Strencom’s turnover by €2 million over the next three years.

Storage Online’s five roles integrated into Strencom, bringing its total number of employees to 30.

Strencom has 140 customers across a number of industries including retail, agri-business, financial, and construction/engineering. Transactions totalling more than €35 billion are supported by Strencom infrastructure every year.

Storage Online’s 43 customers include many local authorities around the country and the HSE.

Tim Murphy, CEO, Strencom, said: “The decision to acquire Storage Online made sense as its offering completely integrates with our services and what our customers need. It’s the ideal time to offer these services, which are hugely complementary to our existing managed hosting and cloud business.

“Historically, organisations have spent a lot of money and resources on back-up, however very little is spent on testing the ability to recover. As part of our cloud offering – whether it’s our virtual data centre or our custom designed managed hosting service – customers enjoy confidence in our expertise from start to finish, from managed cloud hosting, to back-up, testing and recovery.”

Lewis McMahon, managing director, Storage Online, said: “Our expert knowledge and experience of managed backup and recovery services fits very well with Strencom’s expert provision of hosting in the cloud. Strencom were already selling our services so the acquisition was a logical next step. We know the team and their capabilities very well and we are excited about the opportunities that will arise from our integration with Strencom.”
