TORONTO, ON, May 13, 2021 — Carbon60, a leading managed cloud hosting service provider, today announced its acquisition of OpsGuru (the “Company”), Canada’s fastest growing multi-cloud and DevOps consultancy. The acquisition makes the combined company the preeminent Canadian multi-cloud transformation and managed services organization.
Recently recognized as the 2021 Amazon Web Services Consulting Partner of the Year in Canada, OpsGuru helps clients around the world adopt cloud technologies, upgrade workflows to cloud-native designs and secure and optimize systems for greater efficiency. The Company is a leading Canadian partner for AWS, Azure and Google Cloud and is a specialist in Kubernetes, an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
“The acquisition of OpsGuru dramatically accelerates Carbon60’s realization of our vision to become the leading end-to-end multi-cloud service provider, helping Canadian companies plan, migrate and operate successfully in the cloud,” said John Witte, President & CEO, Carbon60. “Combined, Carbon60 and OpsGuru can fully support clients across Canada in their cloud evolution.”
The combined company will employ over 160 people, from certified cloud consultants across AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud, to software developers with application modernization expertise to system administrators and security professionals who serve as trusted advisors regardless of where clients are on their digital transformation journey. Existing and new Carbon60 clients will benefit from OpsGuru’s cloud consulting experience, including Cloud Launchpad, a proprietary process that expedites cloud transformation using pre-built infrastructure-as-code templates and battle-tested best practices – reducing cloud transformation timelines from months to weeks.
“We’re excited to join the Carbon60 family and provide our combined customers with a true end-to-end multi-cloud offering,” said Anton Mishel, CEO of OpsGuru, “OpsGuru’s trademark culture of innovation and curiosity fits very nicely with Carbon60’s emphasis on providing responsive and reliable 24/7 managed services with a focus on excellence in customer experience.”
