Google Apps partner Cloud Sherpas buys into UK market

Cloud Sherpas prides itself on its Google(s goog) Apps business and now it’s extended its reach in the U.K. by buying Stoneburn Software Services, a London-based technology consulting and services firm.

Late last year, Atlanta-based Cloud Sherpas netted $40 million in Series B funding to accelerate its Google Apps and business. It also bought Cloud Trigger, a San Diego-based implementation partner to gain a bigger West Coast foothold. That acquisition brought total headcount to 350.

Terms of new buy were not disclosed but with Stoneburn aboard Cloud Sherpas has 70 employees in the U.K.

In a statement, Cloud Sherpa CEO David Northington said: “The UK and Western European cloud and Google Enterprise markets have very quickly transitioned from early adopter phase to established businesses.”

That might surprise folks who expect that PRISM-irked Europeans will hold off buying IT and services from U.S.-based cloud companies, like Google and crm),a topic we’ll discuss in depth at Structure:Europe in London September 18-19.
