FusionStorm + Synoptek = Cloud & Managed IT

By Doug Barney

If you spend any time at all reading MSP Today, you’ll note that partnerships are driving many new managed services.

The newest pair is IT solution provider FusionStorm and IT services and cloud company Synoptek.

While most MSP partnerships are just that, partnerships, these two are actually creating a new entity that will fall under the Synoptek moniker.

In essence the two bring their managed services and cloud businesses together as one.

“We believe this partnership with Synoptek will significantly benefit both companies and our mutual customers,” Serpico said. “Synoptek is laser-focused on managed services and cloud solutions, with a global team and delivery infrastructure that provides a world-class customer experience. This partnership will enable us to deliver an enhanced managed services offering while continuing to build upon our expertise in enterprise-class data center infrastructure.”

Synoptek, which owns the brand, likewise feels strengthened by the new deal.

“This partnership with FusionStorm will optimize our delivery of managed IT services and strengthen our portfolio of private, public and hybrid cloud options to accommodate a strategic, high-performance customer base,” said Tim Britt, CEO of Synoptek. “We will be able to establish a strong global footprint for delivery, scalability and high-availability solutions, and tap FusionStorm's expertise to fuel growth across a broad portfolio of enterprise IT offerings.”

As part of the deal, Synoptek moved some cash FusionStorm’s way. FusionStorm will now invest in people and operations to drive new services in logistics, integration and data center infrastructure.

For Synoptek, the partnership is a route to managed services growth.

“We are growing both organically and through acquisition,” Britt said. "Our teams are organized around customer groups so that customers have access to familiar expert resources often missing in larger service organizations while also taking advantage of a large shared infrastructure to enable performance, reliability and service. Synoptek plans to continue its expansion in new geographic markets and by providing additional cloud service offerings in the future."
