History[edit]

Logicworks is an enterprise cloud automation and managed service provider company founded in February 1993. In 1998, Logicworks changed its focus from standard web hosting to more complex types of managed hosting. Other high points over the years included Logicworks getting the first MySQL enterprise partner designation in 2003, and expanding into private cloud hosting in 2007. The focus on cloud continues through to today, starting with the Logicworks cloud in 2010 and adding another data center to bring the company up to three in 2011.[2] In April 2011, Logicworks received $7.6 million during a venture funding round. Logicworks' cloud offerings are marketed as traditional cloud computing offers instead of remote hosting solutions.[3] In 2013, Logicworks, with 22+ years of legacy IT experience leveraged automation and DevOps Capabilities to develop their Managed AWS Service. On December 14, 2016, Logicworks announced that it raised $135 Million from private equity firm, Pamplona Capital, to grow its automation and consulting business.[4]
