Colocation, cloud, and managed services provider ColoHouse announced the acquisition of managed cloud services provider Lume Cloud as part of its worldwide expansion plans at an undisclosed sum.
ColoHouse’s acquisition includes Lume’s flagship solution suite Cloud Anyware, providing a single point for management, monitoring, and support across all customers’ infrastructures. It allows clients to choose which cloud/infrastructure solution they want to use for each application, along with the data center location for hosting the environment.
In turn, customers get to optimize their cloud for cost, performance, and security by connecting their public and private cloud services.
Kyle Verzello, who serves the role of a CEO of Lume Cloud, had this to say:
“ColoHouse’s acquisition of Lume Cloud illustrates our vested interest to further enhance our competitive edge in the marketplace while enabling ColoHouse to offer more diverse geographical connectivity options and cloud solutions combined with world-class support that are essential to our customers. Increasingly, location matters for cloud solutions. Private cloud and colocation delivered where customers need infrastructure is a critical component to any cloud strategy. Together, ColoHouse and Lume Cloud have amazing synergies, and with this acquisition, we can achieve the next level of growth for our ecosystem.”
Verzello will also continue to lead the cloud-based products suites and teams after the acquisition.

ColoHouse, headquartered in Miami, Florida, has 24 locations in 19 cities in North America, Europe, and Asia. The company was recently acquired by 1547 Critical Systems Realty and Valterra Partners and currently operates in seven different countries.
With its full suite of colocation, cloud, and managed services, ColoHouse provides customers the needed flexibility to customize their IT infrastructure, thus meet their business objectives. Their primary focus is delivering quality infrastructure, services, and support.
The latest extension allows ColoHouse to add private cloud, cloud backup, and recovery and security services worldwide in its 24 ColoHouse data centers.
Paul Bint, who serves the role of CEO of ColoHouse, had this to say:
“We’re pleased to welcome Kyle and the Lume team to the ColoHouse family. The technology and data center industry is growing at an unprecedented speed, which requires innovative solutions and expanded capabilities to meet our growing customer demands. Our operational and financial expertise, together with our geographic diversity paired with Lume Cloud’s impressive private cloud capabilities, place us in a very powerful up-market position. I couldn’t be more excited about this next phase of our growth as we continue to expand our product offerings and capabilities to address the needs of our evolving cloud-based clients.”
The acquisition of Lume Cloud is certainly not the first, neither the last. ColoHouse began its strategic acquisitions and collaborations strategy back in 2009. The company aims to pursue it until it becomes the leading data center services provider in the world.
