Connectria Acquires AWS Migration and Consultancy Firm WSM International

The hosting company Connectria has announced it has acquired St Clair Shores, MI-based WSM International. For the past 15 years, WSM International has been helping small- and mid-sized companies and enterprises migrate to the cloud and reach their digital transformation goals.

WSM International has provided cloud & hybrid cloud consultancy and advisory services to hundreds of firms, has completed thousands of successful migrations to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, and now has more than 1,000 customers around the world, employs almost 250 people, and generates $60 million in annual revenues.

Connectria provides cloud-managed services and management tools for customers that have already transitioned to the cloud and helps then reduce their cloud costs and comply with regulations such as HIPAA, GDPR, and PCI. What Connectria was missing was a professional services team that could help new customers migrate to the cloud, hence the decision to acquire WSM International and bring the company under the Connectria umbrella.

“We’re pleased to be joining the Connectria team” said Ryan Pelerin, CEO of WSM. “Their leadership in cloud managed services and tools is an excellent complement to WSM’s strengths in cloud migrations, DevOps and delivering Cloud Centers of Excellence (CCOE) to our customers.

The acquisition means the company has now become an end-to-end cloud service provider and can help companies complete their digital transformation and operate successfully once their infrastructure has been moved to the cloud.
