Reasons to be Excited About INAP’s Purchase of SingleHop


We Couldn’t be *Hoppier*

INAP recently announced we have finalized our purchase of SingleHop – a cloud infrastructure and managed hosting provider.

And to be frank, we’re pretty excited about it.

SingleHop has been a leader for years in the cloud hosting space, offering an elite set of services and products that we can’t wait to introduce into the INAP portfolio.

In addition, we will be welcoming with open arms 150 talented and enthusiastic SingleHop employees to the INAP team. We look forward to the new ideas and experiences they will bring to help our corporate culture grow and move our company into the future.

Bottom line: this acquisition will only make INAP stronger and more robust, improving our data center services, infrastructure solutions, corporate growth and financial outlook.

How Your Business Will Benefit from INAP’s Acquisition of SingleHop

It has always been INAP’s goal to expand and improve its portfolio of services.

During INAP’s third quarter 2017 earnings conference, CEO Pete Aquino highlighted this objective, saying this growth will come both organically and through acquisitions. The SingleHop acquisition is a perfect example of how we are committed to accelerating our business growth and financial standing.

By bringing in new talent, products and ideas, we will also be helping your company grow by providing state-of-the-art infrastructure and additional solutions to help power your business.

Here are three ways your business will benefit from INAP’s acquisition of SingleHop.

1. Additional Product Offerings

Thanks to this strategic move, you will soon have access to SingleHop’s portfolio of private cloud, managed hosting, and business continuity services.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Chicago-based company, SingleHop has continuously pioneered cutting-edge ways to automate infrastructure deployment and management since its founding in 2006. Its platform enables world-class uptime and service reliability, which allowed the company to develop the industry’s first self-monitoring service level agreement (dubbed the “Best SLA Ever” by ReadWrite).

Whether you currently are running your infrastructure in a colocation or managed environment or the cloud (public, private or multi-platform), you will be able to find an INAP solution that meets your business needs thanks to our soon-to-be-expanded services.

Rather than spending time and resources to build these advanced capabilities, this deal allows for quick integration into INAP’s product set. The end result? You will be able to utilize these SingleHop services as part of your INAP footprint with the assistance of experts who understand the products and your business’s unique needs.

2. More Data Center Locations

In addition to the new product sets, INAP will also be bringing SingleHop’s five data centers into its global footprint. Those new facilities will be located in the Chicago, Phoenix, New York and Amsterdam markets. This means you’ll now have 56 Tier 3-type data centers in 21 metropolitan markets worldwide to choose from for your colocation, managed hosting, cloud and network services.

This growth allows businesses more flexibility and solutions in some of our most popular markets. With connections via fiber line and INAP’s reliable backbone to POPs in the market and worldwide, your infrastructure and applications are always available.

3. Continued World-Class Service

By adding SingleHop’s 150 employees to the INAP team, you’ll have access to additional experienced and qualified specialists helping you find and manage the right services for your unique business needs.

SingleHop co-founder and CEO (and currently onboarding as INAP CMO) Zak Boca perfectly summed it up, promising an unparalleled service experience that will remain front and center for both INAP and SingleHop customers.

What Happens Next

The next few weeks and months will be exciting for customers, partners, investors and employees as we prepare to add SingleHop’s capabilities and talent into our already robust product portfolio and corporate culture. We look forward to an integration that results in innovative and industry-leading solutions and services.

We can’t wait!
