Ensono has completed its acquisition of Wipro's hosted data centre business, doubling its size and increasing its annual revenue to more than $550 million.

Ensono will use the acquisition to spread its reach in the UK and US markets, creating a new opportunity in India and launching a service in Germany. Clients will experience better support with a 24/7 support centre, more stable infrastructure and Ensono said the acquisition will speed up infrastructure innovation too.

Ensono will take on Wipro's existing clients and with investment of $55 million from Wipro, Ensono can build upon its hybrid IT portfolio with new innovations to address demand.

"We're proud to enter into a partnership with a company who has years of IT experience that's able to fully meet the needs of international hosted data center clients," said Raj Bagga, vice president of global infrastructure services at Wipro Limited. "Our combined company will bring solutions to clients across industries more quickly and at a larger scale than ever before."

Ensono has made a number of similar acquisitions over the last three years, including Attenda in 2016 and Microsoft specialist Inframon last year.

"This acquisition is a strategic move to expand our global presence to offer clients more options and access to a larger group of talented associates that will help drive faster transformation and innovation for our clients," said Jeff VonDeylen, CEO of Ensono.

"Ensono's growth over the last three years has been astounding, and this acquisition solidifies our position as a relentless ally to our clients and cements our position as a recognized global leader in hybrid IT."
