BTT Cloud is becoming a part of the cloud service provider Skaylink. Skaylink continues to expand by bringing together leading managed service providers and building its portfolio of competences. The group employs over 500 cloud enthusiasts alongside the newly joining Lithuanians colleagues.

Currently, Skaylink is one of the largest managed service provider in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland (DACH). The joint ambition – further expanding within the EU and become a leading Cloud Service Provider in Europe.

UAB BTT Group will operate under Skaylink’s name in Lithuania, so partners and clients will not experience administrative changes. Donatas Zaveckas continues to lead the company as he remains committed to BTT Group and Skaylink with a shareholding in the combined group. The company’s service spectrum in Lithuania will remain unchanged, and the service and competence package, as well as coverage for cloud and DevOps services, will be greatly expanded.

The brand BTT Cloud is to be withdrawn from circulation by July 2022.
“My ambition has always been to work from Lithuania for the entire world, to create jobs here, implement interesting, valuable, and profitable projects. Over a decade, we have walked an impressive path together and today, we are turning a new page. I know that we are excellent, but this deal is a recognition of our entire team. We will offer our clients an even higher standard of service quality alongside Skaylink,” Donatas Zaveckas says.
