Adapt is touted as an advanced Amazon Web Services consulting partner known for its hybrid cloud services. Datapipe, which is also tightly integrated with AWS, wants to use Adapt to expand its footprint in the European market.

"Adapt and Datapipe both have cultures that focus on proactive, high-touch customer service and a commitment to customer specific solutions designed to meet clients' individual business challenges," said Datapipe CEO Robb Allen.

The deal marks the fifth acquisition for Datapipe as it works to build out support for multiple cloud platforms, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, and its own hosted private cloud, Stratosphere.

Last year, the company acquired AWS assessment, automation, and migration company DualSpark to bolster its public cloud migration services. In 2013, Datapipe scooped up Newvem to expand its cloud analytics and operations optimization products.

Datapipe, based in Jersey City, N.J., has cloud infrastructure capabilities in Silicon Valley, the New York Metro area, London, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. The company recently opened a data center in Moscow under the pretense of helping enterprises operate and sell in the country while abiding by Russia's strict data sovereignty laws.
