It is my pleasure to officially announce that Blue Gecko has been acquired by Datavail. Based in Broomfield, CO, Datavail is among the largest providers of remote database administration services in North America and the largest remote managed services provider in the Rocky Mountain region.
Together, Blue Gecko and Datavail will continue to offer 24×7 remote DBA with a focus on providing the best possible service and support for our customers. Datavail gains a presence in the Seattle market with a highly regarded reputation built by Blue Gecko over the last 11 years; and over the coming months, Blue Gecko will introduce a host of new services and additional access to more support staff available 24×7.
For our existing customers, our entire Seattle staff (including JJ and me)will remain in the Seattle office and will continue our support work as usual. Any questions can be sent directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Editorially, I’d like to add that this transaction is the result of good timing for both parties: Datavail was looking to grow and expand into the Pacific Northwest, while at Blue Gecko, we’ve been working hard to expand our 24×7 coverage and enhance newer platform support such as SQL Server. After a few short talks, we were buzzing about how we could leverage and learn from each other; and quickly realized the benefits of merging the two companies. Just a few months later,I’m happy to say it’s been a pleasure working with the Datavail team. I’m also incredibly excited about the benefits and opportunities for our customers going forward.
