Park Place Technologies Acquisitions In 2022
Riverstone Technology is Park Place Technologies’ third acquisition this year and twenty-first since 2016.
In March, Park Place acquired Reliant Technology, a fellow third-party maintenance, support and hardware provider based in Atlanta.
Reliant Technology provided maintenance and support for storage, network and server devices for nearly 500 clients in Asia, Africa, Europe and North America. The company’s hardware inventory was added to Curvature, Park Place’s new and pre-owned hardware division.
In addition to its Riverstone Technology and Reliant Technology acquisitions, the solution provider bought Congruity360’s Storfirst software platform.
Park Place said Storfirst is the industry’s most secure, OEM- and platform-agnostic file system migration and information management software for cloud, hybrid cloud and on-premise. Storfirst allows customers to manage the movement of their data from production servers to disaster recovery servers, on-premise and to the cloud; the software enables customers to control the movement of all file data.
