Jersey City, NJ – September 9, 2015 – Datapipe, a global leader in managed hybrid IT solutions for the enterprise, today announced it has acquired AWS assessment, automation, and migration companyDualSpark. DualSpark’s AWS consulting services simplify the experience of moving apps and critical infrastructure to the AWS cloud.

Today’s acquisition is our latest step forward to help enterprises take full advantage of the AWS public cloud, all backed by Datapipe’s highly experienced, certified professionals.”
