Quartet Service acquires KLM Solutions

The 'Cloud' is a big part of the reason for merging, but reports of hardware's death are greatly exaggerated.

TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2011 /CNW/ - Quartet Service Inc., a technology services leader in Toronto, is pleased to join forces with KLM Solutions Ltd., a 23-year-old IT products and solutions provider.

"You might say this is a match made in the Cloud," says Robert Bracey, President and CEO of Quartet. "We do a lot of work for our customers in the Cloud, but we also believe hardware is not going to disappear. The combined strengths of Quartet's service experience and KLM's product expertise are a perfect match.

"Hardware's death is greatly exaggerated," adds Mr. Bracey, "companies are simply not moving their entire infrastructure to the Cloud. On premise equipment plays an important role."

Kent Leckie, KLM's President, says "cloud computing is real and here to stay. Interestingly, we're developing some creative in-house and hybrid cloud models that accelerate the traditional benefits of cloud computing."

"With our long-standing partnerships with manufacturers and Quartet's service-oriented business model and its investment in a sophisticated private cloud, this merger made so much sense," Mr. Leckie adds.

"It is a case where two plus two actually equals five," says Mr. Bracey. "We see our current clients utilizing KLM's hardware and project expertise, while at the same time KLM's clients can use Quartet's experience to help them move towards cloud computing."

There are many reasons for the popularity of hybrid cloud computing, including security concerns, disaster recovery needs, capital efficiency, and the need to host some applications in house.

Simply put, hybrid cloud computing provides flexibility. It reduces costs without sacrificing performance and security.
