OnX Buys Worknet, Builds Disaster Recovery and Managed Muscle

By Doug Barney

OnX Enterprise Solutions bought its way deeper into both the disaster recovery and managed hosting markets by snapping up Worknet, which also has remote monitoring and management (RMM).

OnX also bought itself a fair bit of capacity as Worknet totes along two SSAE 16 data centers.

OnX has already mostly digested Worknet, having based much of its new OnX Managed Services business on the Worknet work. This new unit is a blending on existing OnX services and the ones acquired through Worknet.

In fact, it was two and half years ago OnX that launched a bevy of managed and cloud services.

These services can manage and monitor a client’s private or shared infrastructure.

OnX is looking forward to a broader MSP footprint, said Ed Vos, CEO of OnX Enterprise Solutions. “This acquisition gives OnX further reach into the US managed services market and includes two US data centers that can service our existing customers in the United States. In turn, the entire OnX US sales force will have access to an in-country based multi-tenant cloud and managed services offering, which is ideal for clients who are sensitive to where data resides,” Vos said.

The OnX MSP Portfolio

You Can Trust OnX – it’s 30 Years Old!

OnX was launched 30 years ago by Sheldon M. Pollack and Philip A. Deleon with a scant $10,000.

The company says three decades later it is still in growth mode, and not just the shortcut way – through acquisition.

The company last winter bragged that it had two quarters in a row of services growth.

“The OnX Cloud and Managed Services division reported record sales and client acquisition in Q1, and has seen the expansion continue into Q2, recognizing over $13 million in new contracts, an increase of 30 percent over Q1 results. The company attributes its success to the advancing interest in cloud computing, for which OnX provides a number of IT solutions, including the new Application Performance Testing-as-a-Service (TaaS) and SharePoint in the cloud,” OnX said.

OnX also nabbed Ospero, a Canadian cloud utility concern, as a client. “As a global cloud utility company, our job is to provide elastic compute and storage in as many business hubs across the world as possible,” said Jason Currill, CEO of Ospero. “Adhering to our strict six pillars methodology, all of our partners need to conform to tier 3+ data center accreditation and meet local data protection legislation,” said Currill.
