IRIDEOS has acquired Enter – a major Italian network and cloud services based company. This purchase is the most recent of IRIDEOS acquisitions as the company works to consolidate the cloud and data center market throughout Italy.
“With this new acquisition, our growth path continues, focused on strengthening our assets and skills in the Italian ICT space,” said Mauro Maia, CEO of IRIDEOS. “A wider portfolio of services is now available for our customers, with new cloud solutions and international connectivity.”
As a leading ISP focused on providing global network connectivity, Enter’s IP backbone spans 35+ Points of Presence (PoPs) worldwide, providing a wide range of network services, including Ethernet, VPN and cloud interconnection. Enter also provides Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions, the first European, OpenStack-based service of its kind. This comprehensive solution provides customers with the computing, storage, network, DNS and CDN solutions they require to build an effective cloud solution.
“This is an exciting time for the Italian telecommunications industry as IRIDEOS works to consolidate cloud, network and data center providers throughout the region,” shares Ivan Botta, CEO, Enter. “We look forward to joining IRIDEOS as we work together to provide solutions that exceed customer expectations.”
As a result of this strategic acquisition, Enter will be part of a wider portfolio of services with a densified fiber footprint and additional colocation opportunities throughout the Italian market and will continue to deliver high-quality cloud and connectivity solutions to users around the globe.
IRIDEOS’ purchase of Enter follows the recent acquisitions of Infracom Italia, KPNQwest Italia, MC-link and BiG TLC. As a result of these purchases, the IRIDEOS technological platform now integrates 12 data centers across Milan, Rome, Trento, and Verona, the largest Italian private Internet exchange (Avalon) and 15,000 km of proprietary optical fiber along the major highways.
