Hitachi Vantara, a subsidiary of Hitachi, announced its intentions to acquire REAN Cloud LLC. REAN Cloud is a managed service provider featured on our free buyer’s guide. They also develop cloud-native applications in areas like big data, machine learning, and IoT. The company is a Premier Consulting Partner with AWS, and a Silver Partner for Microsoft Azure.
REAN Cloud was founded in 2013 and began focusing on managed services for AWS in 2014. They offer a DevOps Accelerator platform that reviews your environment, migrates and deploys apps securely, and provides compliance support. Thus, they’re particularly capable at managing clouds for regulated industries like financial services or the public sector.
With this acquisition, Hitach Vantara is looking to expand its ability to accelerate secure enterprise cloud adoption across multicloud environments. REAN Cloud will strengthen its ability to manage and operate traditional applications, as well as emerging workloads in AI and machine learning. Both companies are dedicated to creating trending technologies to help their clients stay ahead.
“Enterprises today want the ultimate flexibility in selecting the right environment for their varied workloads and development requirements. Moving and managing data and applications across environments requires careful orchestration through a unified cloud platform,” said Bobby Soni, chief solutions and services officer of Hitachi Vantara. “Hitachi Vantara already offers trusted and reliable private cloud solutions for customers who want pay-as-you-go experiences without having to move their data off premises. With REAN Cloud, we will be able to extend our unified cloud offerings to public and hybrid clouds, and we will enable customers to accelerate their digital transformations by deploying analytics-centric solutions to drive business outcomes.”
Customers currently using REAN Cloud won’t have to worry about losing their services, as the company will still exist as part of Hitachi Vantara’s Solutions and Services organization. With the resources available through Hitachi, REAN Cloud is bound to improve its services and expand to new areas.
The transaction is expected to close by the end of the year.
