Sphere 3D Corp. announced that HVE ConneXions, LLC, and Unified ConneXions, Inc., (collectively UCX) will join its family of companies.

The company has signed a definitive agreement to acquire HVE (Hybrid Virtualization Engine) ConneXions, a hybrid cloud technology company focused on converged and hyperconverged infrastructure, along with its sister company, Unified ConneXions, which provides expert, professional, and IT services to corporate, government, and educational institutions.

By adding UCX's products, technologies, professional services and engineering talent, Sphere 3D will expand its virtualization practice as well as enhance its ability to accelerate the delivery of hybrid cloud solutions to customers.

The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is anticipated to close before January 31, 2017.

Transaction Highlights

• The combined virtualization revenue of HVE and UCX represented over $7 million for calendar year 2016.

• Will help accelerate company's path to profitability

• Expected to be accretive in first quarter of 2017

• Will expand virtualization market share in education, healthcare and other key verticals

• Will add engineering talent to support channel partners and customers through professional services and support capabilities

Sphere 3D and UCX share the architectural design philosophy that next-generation virtualization and storage solutions require distributed workloads to achieve the fastest performance while maintaining flexible and cost-effective scalability. In addition, both companies share a common vision that a mix of virtual desktops and container-based application delivery is critical to address the increasing demand for virtual workspace environments.

UCX is based in the metropolitan area of Dallas, TX, and maintains three facilities including a 20,000 square foot integration center in Plano, TX, corporate HQs in Dallas, which includes a network operation center (NOC) and a data center, and a sales and services office located in Waxahachie, TX.

The UCX engineers support customers' IT initiatives by providing strategic, architectural, operational, and implementation planning related to the customers' entire IT and network infrastructure.

In addition to each next generation appliance that the UCX team engineers and deploys, they also provide proactive 24x7x365 monitoring services for those appliances under maintenance service contracts. The UCX services team has the ability to work with customers either onsite or remotely, and is certified in a range of technologies that include Microsoft, VMware, Citrix, NVIDIA, and various networking technologies. Its highly trained and skilled virtualization engineers have a range of experience and technical expertise, which has allowed UCX to differentiate itself by offering both solutions and services to partners and customers.

Joseph L. O'Daniel, president and CEO, Unified ConneXions, will take on the new role of president of virtualization and professional services for Sphere 3D.

Chris Cunningham, VP and CFO, Unified ConneXions, will take on the new role of SVP of business operations and professional services.

David Harmon, president of HVE, will become VP of virtualization.

In addition to the aforementioned new virtualization team, the company has moved to optimize the focus of the storage team and announced that Randy Gast, current COO of Sphere 3D, will take on the additional new role of president of storage for Sphere 3D.

The combined companies will focus on expediting the migration of applications and their associated data to a modernized IT infrastructure for its customers, as well as empower workload mobility across their virtual and cloud environments, while continuing to provide expert and professional IT services.

"This is a very important day for Sphere 3D," said Eric Kelly, CEO and chairman, Sphere 3D. "UCX has exceptional leadership teams, innovative technology, industry recognized engineering talent, and an outstanding track record of delivering next generation solutions to their customers. We are honored to welcome them into the Sphere 3D family, and together we will build on our combined history of innovation and partnership with our customers to deliver data center solutions that support advanced IT strategies and business requirements."
