Opti9 Technologies enters hybrid cloud solutions race

By Shannon Williams, Thu 6 Jan 2022

Opti9 Technologies LLC, a North America-based IT services company, has announced its launch as a managed hybrid cloud solutions provider.

Opti9 was formed through a strategic merger between New York-based Webair, a leader in infrastructure and cloud services, and Jelecos, a Nebraska-based AWS Advanced Consulting Partner and application development firm. 

"The launch of Opti9 creates greater value and service quality for our customers, providing a more comprehensive, compelling solution to the marketplace," says Bill Bancroft, chief executive of Opti9. 

"Enterprises face complex challenges to protect their critical IT assets in an ever-changing environment. This includes being able to manage and secure applications across the hybrid cloud landscape while ensuring compliance with evolving regulations," he says. 

"Organisations are seeking a partner who can provide expertise and ownership of the digital transformation journey from application modernisation to hybrid cloud management and security," Bancroft says. 

"The combination of Webair and Jelecos uniquely positions Opti9 as a service provider able to manage and secure customers' hybrid cloud workloads and deliver industry-leading solutions based on customers' unique business needs."

Webair, based in Garden City, NY, with data centres around the globe, has 20+ years of experience as an IT services provider. Webair is an industry leader in IT infrastructure and cloud solutions, specialising in private cloud and IT resilience solutions. They bring talent and experience focused in the areas of managed cloud, backup, and disaster recovery.

Jelecos, based in Omaha, NE, with additional offices in Overland Park, KS and St. Louis, MO, has 20+ years of experience as an IT consulting firm. The company is an AWS Advanced Consulting partner focused on public cloud solutions with expertise in digital transformations, application modernisation, and management of AWS workloads. 

The merger was preceded by a strategic growth investment made by Crest Rock Partners, a Denver-based private equity firm, in both Webair and Jelecos, respectively. The investment by Crest Rock continues to accelerate strategic initiatives and growth opportunities for Opti9 to deliver lasting value for clients, partners, and shareholders. 

The merger forming Opti9 is final as of January 2022. 

Opti9 is a hybrid cloud solutions provider with offices in Garden City, NY, Omaha, NE, Overland Park, KS, and St. Louis, MO, and data centres in North America, Europe and the APAC region. The company is an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner and Veeam Platinum VCSP, specialising in cloud services, application development and modernisation, backup and disaster recovery, and managed security and compliance.
