PacketFabric, Unitas Global to Tie the Knot

January 12th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

In one of the more significant network infrastructure moves so far in 2023, PacketFabric and Unitas Global have announced plans to merge. The combination will put together two of the industry’s most aggressive advocates of infrastructure automation and software defined networking.

PacketFabric was founded six years ago this January, focusing on the then young Network-as-a-Service space from the ground up. Unitas Global has been around a bit longer, being founded in 2009 with a more general approach centered on the border of network and IT. In recent years they have tightened that focus down to automated networking for the cloud, which parallels PacketFabric quite nicely. We had Unitas Global CTO Grank Kirkwood here for an Industry Spotlight a bit over a year ago.

PacketFabric’s approach has been toward webscale and cloud providers, while Unitas Global has targeted the enterprise market. The two customer bases and product sets seem pretty complementary, though as always the key will be how they integrate them together and unify their cloud-native technology stack.

Financial terms were not disclosed, nor are they saying yet who will be staying and who will be moving on. But it appears the plan is to run the combined company under the PacketFabric brand. Digital Alpha Advisors owns at least part of both companies, and helped bring the two together.
