Share

Unitas Global, a Digital Alpha portfolio company, announces today that it has acquired INAP’s Network Business assets, including INAP Japan, enhancing its portfolio of network service offerings that enable hybrid cloud environments. The combination of these two companies creates a high-growth next generation networking platform focused on simplifying the way customers buy network connectivity to enable the seamless movement of data between various cloud and on-premises environments.

The combination of the INAP network technologies, including its patented, intelligent routing software, Managed Internet Route Optimizer (MIRO), with Unitas Global's automated design and pricing platform, Unitas Nexus™, and its global network, Unitas Reach™, creates a compelling offer to meet the needs of enterprises modernizing their digital infrastructure. In addition, this acquisition provides Unitas Global with a significant expansion of over a thousand multinational enterprise customers as well as global network serving 18 markets with Performance IP™.

“The transaction is a true win-win for everyone involved. Unitas Global will continue to provide the high-quality services that customers enjoy today while investing in new solutions to enable further network transformation tomorrow," comments Mike Sicoli, CEO of INAP.
