Zettagrid buys cloud provider Conexim, increases scale, product breadth

14 Apr 2016

Zettagrid has acquired Sydney-based cloud provider Conexim in a deal designed to increase Zettagrid’s scale, develop its product range and expand its advanced partner support team in Sydney.

The deal, for an undisclosed sum, is part of Zettagrid’s ongoing plans for growth and provides greater scale, product breadth and reach within its core market, the IT infrastructure-as-a-service provider says.

Nathan Harman, Zetta Group managing director, says Conexim is ‘a good fit’ for Zettagrid, with customers of both companies expected to benefit from the deal.

“We plan on expanding Zettagrid’s product catalog by adding a number of unique Conexim products over the coming months,” Harman says.

“We’ll also consolidate a number of services on our combined VMware platforms.”

Nicholas Power, Zettagrid chief operating officer, says in a blog that Conexim customers will be migrated into Zettagrid over the coming months, with some products integrated, and the Conexim brand retired.

Harman says Zettagrid is continuing to grow.

The company has made a series of strategic investments in recent years, including expanding its data centre and point of presence locations and architecting its cloud for extreme modularity, enabling rapid deployment and ‘massive’ scalability, he says.
