In a statement, Sharp said: “As enterprises drive towards services-enabled data centers to deliver more business value while managing costs and risks, CIOs are facing increasing complexity. This challenge is compounded by the rise in cloud computing, which is reshaping how services are offered, escalating data security threats, and increasing compliance regulations. Enterprises need objective guidance to deliver enhanced services, mitigate risk, and control costs in the face of this complexity. GlassHouse’s objective expertise in data center and cloud services provides tremendous value to our clients, helping them to deliver pragmatic plans with measurable returns.”  

Scannell has led the company as CEO since 2011.
