Technology infrastructure company Nexus Group CEO Steve Brugman has acquired the assets of Butler Networks.
The acquisition, terms of which were not disclosed, will add more than 100 new clients to Nexus’s existing client base of about 500 businesses throughout Tennessee.
Along with The Nexus Group, Butler Networks was one of the original Internet service providers serving Middle Tennessee. The two companies, both based in Nashville, have enjoyed a multi-year relationship, with Nexus providing much of the infrastructure that enabled Butler’s network and other data center services.
Bill Butler and Wayne Lambert serve as principals of Butler Networks.
“Cloud computing is all about the convergence of network capabilities with strong data center facilities and security,” Brugman said in a release. “Our experience has been that local Tennessee businesses are now acting upon the advantages of Cloud applications, such as offsite storage and virtual computing, and network management to ensure the solutions are secure and available. Companies desire a local partner to help them in this transition. Nexus is the only business in middle Tennessee that provides the combination of a SOC type II data center with diverse network capabilities.”
