Zadara Acquires NeoKarm


Zadara, an Irvine, Calif.-based edge cloud provider and leader in enterprise storage-as-a-service, acquired NeoKarm, a provider of highly flexible multi-cloud hybrid platforms.

The amount of the deal was not disclosed.

With this acquisition, Zadara obtains NeoKarm technology including the former Stratoscale software IP, which enables MSPs to offer an on-demand private cloud built and fully-managed by Zadara. Additionally, Simon Grinberg, CEO for NeoKarm and former head of product for Stratoscale, has joined Zadara as the head of product. Key NeoKarm DevOps and engineering personnel will also be added to the Zadara team to continue the development of the technology and drive new compute-focused innovations.

The acquisition follows Zadara’s technology partnership with NeoKarm, which expanded the company’s cloud platform and enabled Zadara to deliver production-ready AWS-compatible compute-as-a-service solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and enterprises. In the three months since the announcement of the partnership, Zadara has deployed 20 new private compute clouds.

Led by Nelson Nahum, CEO, Zadara provides a cloud services platform that simplifies operational complexity through automated end-to-end infrastructure provisioning of compute, storage and networking resources.

The company enables service providers to upgrade their IT environments, leveraging existing footprints, with a 100% OpEx consumption-based private cloud.

Zadara operates worldwide, including clouds in hundreds of data centers at public- and private-cloud partners, with an expert team that provides follow-the-sun services and support. The company also has locations in London, Tokyo, Yokneam (Israel), and Bangalore.
