Cox Communications expands cloud capabilities with Logicworks acquisition
Cox Communications recently announced that it has acquired Logicworks, a managed cloud services company.
Logicworks specializes in helping customers migrate and manage their business applications on the AWS and Azure platforms. By uniting Logicworks and RapidScale, a part of Cox Business, Cox is furthering its mission to provide leading cloud solutions to US businesses locally and abroad, the company says.
“Cox and Logicworks share the same vision surrounding the underserved public cloud-managed services space,” said Ken Ziegler, the CEO of Logicworks.
Cox Business, the commercial division of Cox Communications, is already providing fiber-based network and cloud solutions that enable applications and create connected environments for nearly 360,000 businesses nationwide. Further, its wholesale division also serves many U.S.-based wireless and wired telecommunications carriers.
“This partnership creates a fantastic opportunity for us to step in and become a market leader. It enables us to continue to capitalize on the increasing demand in the market as well as broaden our opportunities for growth,” stated Ziegler.
With Logicworks, customers can migrate, manage and perform critical workloads on AWS and Azure with enhanced security, scalability and efficiency that increase productivity, the company says. Its Cloud Reliability Platform combines engineering know-how, policy-as-code and technology to help customers comply with laws, improve safety standards and lower costs.
Cox Communications is the largest privately-owned broadband company in the US, serving nearly seven million homes and businesses across 18 states. It is part of Cox Enterprises, a family-owned business that was founded in 1898 by Governor James M. Cox.
“With Logicworks in our commercial services portfolio, we can help customers better migrate and manage systems in the cloud while they focus on business priorities,” said Mark Greatrex, the president of Cox Communications. “This acquisition is part of our larger plan to offer a comprehensive suite of innovative IT solutions.”
Last November, Cox Edge, a full stack edge-cloud infrastructure service, made headlines for becoming a finalist in the Leading Lights Awards for its AIOps solution. Light Reading’s Leading Lights Awards is a globally renowned program that awards companies and individuals who have made remarkable strides in next-generation telecommunications.
