Infiniti, the Folsom-based company that has provided managed and cloud services for 15 years — including many projects within California state government — has been acquired and is merging forces with InterVision, also a provider of managed IT services.
Folsom-based Infiniti provides a range of services including DevOps, cloud and hybrid storage architecture and security. The company, which has about 80 employees, has official partner status with both Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, two of the largest cloud infrastructure providers on the market.
Infiniti got its start 15 years ago working for the California State Teachers Retirement System as well as the state’s Department of Transportation, and has gone on to do work for several other departments. It has also worked for the Alabama Office of Information Technology, according to its website.
“InterVision has built a robust portfolio of clients for its infrastructure solutions, managed services and professional services that complements our cloud services practice and public sector client base,” said Infiniti President Scott Drossos. “The combination of InterVision’s impressive Managed Servicer Provider practice, sales coverage and engineers with the Infiniti team of cloud architects and technical specialists brings greater value to both Infiniti and InterVision. We are truly excited about scaling Infiniti’s cloud services business to reach new clients, geographies and industries.”
The California Department of Technology recently approved Infiniti as a member of its vendor pool for agile development, part of an ongoing push at the state level to rethink its technology procurement and work more iteratively on the kinds of large, multiyear system projects that have failed in the past.
It was just under a year ago that Infiniti formed an exclusive partnership with SeyVu, which specializes in data science and predictive analytics, and together landed contracts with the California community college system, among other clients. The services included targeting fraud in the college-application process.
InterVision, which has headquarters in Santa Clara and St. Louis, provides many of the same services and has some experience working with government as well, according to a California contracting database. The firm has also merged with or acquired Bluelock, Netelligent and Independent Technology Group.
“Infiniti has one of the deepest benches of AWS and Azure experts in the U.S., with 15 years of experience delivering advanced cloud services to hundreds of organizations,” said InterVision CEO Aaron Stone in a press release. “They bring with them the added benefit of extensive expertise in the public sector space.”
Infiniti was founded in 2004 with two state government contracts, according to a company history. The business grew in the ensuing years, and in 2015, Drossos came on board. He had come up through the rank and file of tech firms, including executive roles at Xerox, Pearson, Apple PowerSchool and McGraw-Hill. Early in his career, Drossos helped build a tech startup, MC2 Learning Systems, from inception to a multimillion-dollar global software company.
