When you’ve had enough of the reality in your apartment, there is always reality TV. After 22 minutes of that tedium, there’s the more exciting reality of B2B news. You can thank me on Twitter.

References to Survivor might happen, but B2B does not do Storage Wars. B2B does storage mergers. Peaceful, mergers that make data storage a safe topic to mention hot terms like “disaster recovery” and “protected health information.”

DSC, or Data Storage Corporation has entered into an agreement to merge its subsidiary, Data Storage FL, into Flagship. Flagship Solutions Group will become “the surviving company” in the merger and DS will become a subsidiary. Flagship’s CEO Mark Wyllie will continue with the new Flagship subsidiary, and will join Data Storage Corporation’s Board of Directors. The company’s storage solution provides disaster recovery protection and cloud solutions for data storage.

In our world, jobs that provide for a two-week vacation on the Jersey Shore with a pension and benefits are as rate as a summer re-run of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom. It might be that there are so few employees with a full package left, that fewer companies are needed to administer their plans?

OneDigital, a big American health, retirement/wealth, and HR advisory firm has acquired HM Employee Benefits and Risk Management of St. Louis, Missouri.

“This acquisition is the first to integrate property and casualty (P&C) into OneDigital’s suite of health, retirement and wealth, and human resources consulting, a significant milestone in the company’s growth,” says the press release.

Long before everyone was Selling Sunset and heading for The Hills, tech companies set up shop in Dublin. FinTech outfit BlueSnap, an all-in-one payment platform for both B2B and B2C has opened its European HQ in Dublin. While London was once considered Europe’s economic and banking centre, the FinTech company’s choice of Dublin is not surprising. The Irish capital hosts start-up accelerator programs and the capital can “ensure there was no disruption to services as a result of Brexit.”
