Globe Telecom Inc., one of the largest cloud users in the country, officially completed its acquisition of  leading cloud managed services provider, Cascadeo. 

“Despite facing many challenges this year, we were determined to be recognized as the country’s chief cloud collaborator,” declared Peter Maquera, Senior Vice President for Globe Business. 

“The pandemic only emphasized how critical digitalization is, ” he added.  “In order to survive, companies have to respond with transformed ways of thinking and operating.”

“This propelled us to go all-in on our partnership with Cascadeo so we can prepare companies for a future that embraces the Cloud.”

Globe Business, the enterprise arm of Globe Telecom, has been working closely with Cascadeo to help enterprises remain competitive in the evolving digital landscape. 

Aside from providing expertise in cloud-based products, Cascadeo also supports Globe through cloud managed services, enabling companies to leverage the Cloud’s agility, security, and scalability.

“During the quarantine, many companies had a difficult time adapting to the sudden shift to online services due to their reliance on outdated IT infrastructure and operations,” noted Jared Reimer, Founder of Cascadeo. 

“Our partnership with Globe allows us to showcase that the Cloud is more than just a virtual storage space. It’s an enabler of innovation, maintaining system uptime, and scaling digital resources to meet demand in whatever capacity.”

Cascadeo, which continues to expand in North America,  is a Premier Partner of Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud.

It  is also an expert in Microsoft Azure, with Cloud Centers of Excellence in both the US and the Philippines. 

With the completion of its Cascadeo investment, Globe now has the highest level of professional and managed service capabilities for multi-cloud operations. 

This guarantees businesses that Globe holds extensive experience and knowledge in designing, architecting, building, migrating, and managing workloads and applications on the Cloud.
