Research from Ernst & Young shows that private-equity appetite for assets shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, the first quarter of this year saw 444 deals completed, totaling approximately $11 billion in deal value. Riding this tidal wave of M&A activity in the IT services market is NexusTek, which on Tuesday announced another acquisition — its sixth in the past 18 months.

The private equity-backed, national provider of cloud, cybersecurity and managed IT services has acquired Notonsite, a cloud and IT services company based in Houston.

Notonsite specializes in providing IT outsourcing, IT consulting and cloud services to small businesses. The match is a fluid one, with NexusTek and Notonsite having many operational similarities. With this transaction, NexusTek inherits a strong presence in the southwestern United States, as well as a wide range of customer solutions.

Like NexusTek, Notonsite works side by side with customers to design innovative, cost-effective IT solutions that bring together storage, virtualization, data protection and networking technologies from global leaders such as Cisco, Datto, Dell, Microsoft, Veeam and VMware.

“For NexusTek, delivering an exceptional service experience in local markets across the country is our top priority,” said Michael Hamuka, chief revenue officer, NexusTek. “The addition of Notonsite’s cloud and IT services experts reinforces our ability to support small and medium-size businesses across the Southwest … and the timing could not be better as SMBs in Houston are thriving.”

Houston has led the country in small business outlook for some years due to increased diversification of the local economy. According to a survey by Bank of America, two-thirds of small business owners in Houston believe the local economy will improve this year, compared to one-half of entrepreneurs nationwide. And they’re more optimistic in a number of other categories, including revenue, hiring and business expansion.

As Hamuka puts it, SMBs need to partner with a managed IT services provider that has the national footprint, infrastructure and seasoned IT professionals to scale as they grow both in size and geography. According to CompTIA, 41% of SMBs say their top priority is implementing new systems to help improve efficiency; yet, despite efforts to digitize their environments using cloud-based  services, most lack the resources and IT staff skilled in emerging tech. In addition, the sheer number and type of solutions has grown in such size and complexity that many firms are taking two steps forward and one back as they navigate these new learning curves.

To support SMBs plagued by fragmented cloud offerings, complex pricing and a lack of skilled IT personnel, NexusTek simplifies how managed cloud and IT services are delivered and consumed, in addition to providing predictable budgets. Simply put, NexusTek says it provides SMBs with a single, national managed IT services partner that offers high-touch local support in markets across the country, best-in-class cloud, cybersecurity, IT services, infrastructure, and expert personnel to design, deliver, onboard and maintain tailored services for any deployment environment.

“This acquisition not only strengthens our ability to deliver on the promise of better IT services, but to also empower customers with the freedom and flexibility to focus on growing their business instead of technology, as we assume the burden of optimizing and managing their IT environments,” added Hamuka.

As a certified Cisco partner, a Microsoft partner and Cloud Solutions Provider, the acquisition brings added expertise in cloud assessment, design and implementation, managed hosting, private cloud, backup and disaster recovery, and business continuity. Also of note is the team’s expertise in working with premier platforms including Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Office 365 and Cisco Meraki.
