Servers Australia has completed the acquisition of Oz Servers, taking control of the customers and assets of the Brisbane-based cloud and colocation provider in the process.
Designed to boost aspirations to become the largest colocation and hosting provider across the country, terms of the deal will see an addition of five full-time staff, alongside extra servers to an expanding infrastructure portfolio.
Founded in 2000, Oz Servers owns and operates a data centre in East Brisbane, with specialist expertise across proactive monitoring, back-up and disaster recovery, alongside managed services.
“The assets and client base, combined with an exceptional support and development team from Oz Servers, means that we can continue to grow to become the largest privately and Australian-owned cloud, colocation and dedicated hosting provider in Australia,” Servers Australia CEO Jared Hirst said.
According to Hirst, Oz Servers customers will receive access to a new control panel, backed up by improved services and support.
“They will also receive 24/7 local email support with guaranteed 30 minute response times along with Servers Australia’s 24/7 local based phone support team that is based in Sydney and Brisbane,” Hirst added.
Servers Australia provides infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solutions, which includes custom built dedicated servers, public and private cloud solutions, as well as disaster recovery, back-up, colocation and server management services.
Since its creation in October 2006, the business has expanded its national presence, with locations in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane, specialising in Microsoft, Cisco, A10 Networks, Fortinet and Ruckus Wireless technologies.
The most recent buyout comes 15 months after the business completed a triple acquisition of hosting companies, taking control of Dedicated Servers, Indigo, and Syncom; three long-term established providers in the hosting market.
As reported by ARN, Servers Australia acquired two data centres, consisting of over 300 racks, 3,000 servers and several thousand customers.
