Managed Cloud Services Providers Hostway and HOSTING Merge
January 9, 2019
Managed cloud services providers Hostway and HOSTING have merged. Established in 1998, Hostway has headquarters in Austin, Texas, United States. The company specializes in customized cloud platforms that meet the needs of the companies in its customer base. Offering SSAE 16, HITRUST CSF and ISO 27001-certified and HITRUST, PCI and HIPAA-compliant data centers, it offers customers the benefits of “geographically diverse” services that include shared and managed packages alongside dedicated servers, ecommerce solutions, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions, virtual private clouds, dedicated private clouds and hybrid cloud hosting. Its merger with HOSTING has resulted in one of the world’s largest managed cloud services platforms.
HOSTING, which was established in 1997, has headquarters in Denver, Colorado, United States. The company offers “secure, compliant managed cloud services and open technologies that empower organizations to transform their businesses and lead their industries”. Its portfolio of services leverages Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure’s platforms to offer HIPAA, PCI, SOC 2 and SOC 3-compliant “public cloud, private cloud, hybrid IT and dedicated environments.” With highly compatible services a merger between Hostway and HOSTING is a natural fit. Together they will offer “14 world-class data centers in five countries across three continents”. Emil Sayegh is installed as the new company’s CEO and President and previous investors Littlejohn and Co., LLC and Pamlico will continue their financial support.
“Both Hostway and HOSTING have always had an uncompromising commitment to customer service and an incredible history of pioneering leading-edge solutions into the market,” explained Mr. Sayegh. “This merger is a natural progression of the two companies’ focus on providing solutions for CIOs and IT leaders to reduce costs, mitigate risks and increase business agility. Our combined strengths benefit all our customers by delivering even more product sets and the scalability to adapt to clients’ changing needs. We will be in a unique position to help customers every step of the way as they make the journey to hybrid cloud environments while protecting them against ever-emerging threats.”
