Datapipe just extended its acquisition spree by buying DualSpark a startup founded by former Amazon Web Services techies to ease the migration of business applications to the Amazon cloud. Both companies are privately held so no details of the deals were disclosed.

Robb Allen, chief executive of Datapipe said DualSpark brings a wealth of expertise in assessing enterprise workload to assess which can migrate to the cloud and which need to be redone to take full advantage of cloud architecture. “They’ve done hundreds of migrations and are experts at teaching people how to make apps work properly on AWS.”

DataSpark’st 40 employees move over to Datapipe, bringing total headcount to about 700, he said.

Jersey City, New Jersey-based Datapipe which started out in the late 1990s as a web site design and hosted services provider, kicked off this year with the acquisition of GoGrid a cloud infrastructure provider. By that time it had already bought Newvem, an Israeli cloud assessment tool, last August it purchased Layered Tech, a managed service provider specializing in federal government implementations.

Datapipe offers managed services for AWS and Microsoft Azure public clouds—meaning it acts as the IT proxy for the customer and provides around the clock support for the cloud. It now also supports Microsoft Azure public cloud.
