Day1 Solutions Buys Vazata’s Public Sector Business

CloudCloud computing services company Day1 Solutions has acquired the public sector business unit of Vazata for an undisclosed sum and forged a hybrid cloud alliance with Vazata.

Day1 Solutions said Tuesday it now owns Vazata’s infrastructure offering and cloud tools for the FedRAMP cloud initiative, as well as the latter company’s data center colocation space in Northern Virginia.

Vazata will continue to work out of that data center, Day1 Solutions said.

Stephen Kovac, formerly executive vice president of strategy at Vazata, has also joined Day1 Solutions as VP of the new data center services business.

He will work to help Day1 Solutions expand its data center, colocation and FedRAMP programs.

Luis Benavides, founder and CEO of Day1 Solutions, said the company established the data center services business in an effort to grow Day 1 Solutions’ public sector, managed services and big data practice areas.

“Our goal is to receive provisional authority to operate certification for our infrastructure as a service offering from the FedRAMP joint authorization board this summer, ” added Kovac.
