Unitt acquires GimiScale

Today, the management teams of Unitt Netherlands N.V. and GiMiScale B.V. announced that GiMiScale was taken over by Unitt Netherlands. The takeover is a strong signal that both companies bank on the increasing demand for Public Cloud besides Private Cloud services in the higher market segments. 

GiMiScale is an 'Amazon Web Services Advanced Consulting Partner'. The organisation possesses very specific knowledge and experience in the configuration, implementation and management of ICT services based on Public Cloud infrastructures while Unitt has the size, the market reach and the experience in higher market segments to powerfully market this added value.

The Public Cloud specialist of choice

Since its foundation, GiMiScale has focused 100% on providing services related to the Public Cloud. Often, the client wishes for the enormous scalability inherent to that platform, searches for the possibility to roll out applications and data over several continents or is looking for a 'pay-as-you-go' model for a new initiative.

“The Public Cloud has a DIY character that asks the client to deal with configuration, testing, integration into the existing ICT and 24/7 management. Most companies cannot entirely fulfil this gamut of complementary requirements themselves, as the necessary manpower, experience and processes to do that are often missing. We do nevertheless notice careful steps from larger organisations towards the Public Cloud. It is exactly within that area of tension that the added value of GiMiScale lies„ Jethro Wallenburg, Director of GiMiScale

Like no other company, GiMiScale can base ICT on the Public Cloud and deliver the complementary services that a modern organisation needs. From the first draft and the implementation to 24/7 management and monitoring, GiMiScale completes the 'unadorned' Public Cloud and turns it into a global solution.

The advantages of joining forces

The knowledge and expertise of the combined organisations offer companies in the Benelux the best of both worlds. GiMiScale has the specialised knowledge and experience to elevate the Public Cloud to an 'enterprise level' service, while Unitt has the size, organisation and market reach to also serve those markets.

“Concretely, this joining of forces now offers all the advantages of the Public Cloud in the higher market segments, under the trusted umbrella of Unitt's ISO 27001 certified organisation and supported by its time-tested, ITIL-based processes. I am convinced that we make a unique offer here, allowing the client to choose between the Public and the Private Cloud. While traditional providers will systematically want to direct a client toward either Public Cloud or Private Cloud, Unitt Netherlands now offers both options„ Hans Reinhart, Managing Director of Unitt Netherlands
