Rackspace Announces Completion of Datapipe Acquisition

Rackspace today announced that it has completed its transaction to acquire Datapipe, a managed services leader across public and private clouds, managed hosting and colocation. Through this acquisition, the largest in its history, Rackspace expands its capabilities as the world's leading provider of managed hosting and private cloud solutions that more companies are using as they move critical workloads out of their corporate data centers. Rackspace also becomes the leading provider of managed public cloud services across all the top public cloud infrastructure platforms, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and the Alibaba Cloud.

"This acquisition demonstrates our commitment to become the world's number one provider in IT as a service," said Joe Eazor, Rackspace CEO. "Datapipe brings important new capabilities to Rackspace that will enable us to better serve customers, globally and at scale. Together, we will build on the industry leadership both companies established in expertise, reliability, security and support, to create a new level of end-to-end customer experience."

Rackspace will begin the integration process for Datapipe immediately in a planned way that maintains and enhances support levels for customers. Datapipe leaders joining the Rackspace executive ranks include Joel Friedman, now chief technology officer of Rackspace; Dan Newton, senior vice president, account management and service delivery; and Dan Tudahl, general manager, government solutions.
