Internap Network Services, a provider of IT infrastructure services, announced on Tuesday that it has acquired Voxel Holdings, a provider of scalable hosting and cloud services for the enterprise, in an all-cash transaction valued at about $30 million.

Internap says the addition of Voxel's dedicated hosting and cloud products significantly enhances its IT Infrastructure platform. Voxel's offerings provide a level of automation and self-service that will be available immediately to Internap's customer base.

"As IT Infrastructure outsourcing advances, enterprises increasingly seek service providers to support myriad applications and workloads throughout their entire IT lifecycle," Eric Cooney, president and CEO of Internap, said in a statement. "This acquisition of Voxel increases Internap's market share and growth rate, accelerates our product roadmap and creates an unmatched competitive position as an IT Infrastructure services provider."

Voxel, founded in 1999, provides on-demand dedicated hosting and cloud services to enterprises and Web-centric businesses.

By adding Voxel's service locations in Amsterdam and Singapore to Internap's existing service locations, the combined company will offer a global platform of colocation, managed hosting, dedicated hosting and cloud services. In addition, Internap will leverage Voxel's automation technologies and expertise to enhance its existing product set.
