Servers Australia has completed a triple acquisition of hosting companies, taking control of Dedicated Servers, Indigo, and Syncom; three long-term established businesses in the hosting market.
Terms of the deal will see the Central Coast hosting provider acquire two data centres that will be owned and operated by Servers Australia, consisting of over 300 racks, 3,000 servers and serveral thousand customers.
According to Servers Australia CEO, Jared Hirst, the triple acquisition will help position the company as the largest dedicated hosting provider in the country, with the largest private hosting network spanning 17 locations across Australia and New Zealand.
“The assets of the four companies combined together will be really beneficial to our existing customers as well as our new ones,” he said.
“With the expansion it means we can offer more locations, more support staff and a better network than ever before.”
Since its creation in October 2006, Servers Australia has expanded its national presence, with locations in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane, specialising in Microsoft, Cisco, A10 Networks, Fortinet and Ruckus Wireless technologies.
Going forward, Hirst said key staff members from the Dedicated Servers, Indigo and Syncom teams will remain working under the combined entity, expanding the support team available for both customers and Servers Australia’s existing customers.
“Dedicated Servers, Indigo and Syncom customers will get access to a new control panel, better support and improved services,” Hirst added.
“They will also receive 24/7 support with guaranteed 30 minute response times along with Servers Australia’s 8am-8pm locally based phone support team.”
The acquisition comes shortly after the sale of Servers Australia’s shared hosting customers to VentraIP Australia.
