Summit & Deft: Partners in the Climb

We’re excited to announce that Summit has officially acquired Deft!


Summit has expanded from its origins in application hosting to become one of North America’s most dynamic cloud hosting providers. Summit’s combination of visionary leadership, innovative technology, and top-level talent has allowed the company to help clients pursue excellence with flexible cloud services that scale with their needs.

Founded in 1999, Deft is a trusted data center, cloud, and network services provider for premier global brands. Through a combination of strategic investments and strong partnerships, Deft has built out a global presence with tremendous cloud connectivity and supported by a variety of professional and managed service offerings.

Over the years

This acquisition is only the beginning of our journey.

The rebrand reflects an evolution beyond servers into managed cloud and data center infrastructure.

We are now Deft, a Summit company. There’s no agenda to change how we operate.

Over the next few months, we’ll begin the process of integrating core aspects of the two companies. For Deft customers, it’s business as usual. You will continue working with your existing account reps and log into the same customer portal.
