FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 2nd, 2016
Melbourne, Victoria, 2nd August, 2016 – Serversaurus, a Melbourne-based green cloud computing company, has purchased the customers and infrastructure of Brisbane based cloud hosting company Tract.com.
Serversaurus co-founder Martin Gleeson said he was proud to be making the company’s first acquisition since its inception in 2005:
The purchase of the Tract.com customer base and assets is our first foray into acquired expansion outside of our organic growth over the last 11 years. This expansion brings with it both an existing customer base, as well as necessary infrastructure to upgrade and expand our services in Melbourne
Like Serversaurus, Tract.com is built on the OnApp cloud stack, offering a range of SSD powered hosting services, premium DNS and shared hosting. This acquisition will provide the base for Serversaurus’ next generation cloud platform, allowing for a seamless upgrade path from the original platform which went online in 2010.
Serversaurus co-founder Nick Jaffe looks forward to the infrastructure and reliability benefits of the acquisition:
In the last 6 years Serversaurus has maintained unprecedented uptime, outperforming the likes of Amazon Web Services and other major cloud players. This acquisition from an infrastructure perspective, will provide Serversaurus with the base platform necessary to upgrade and continue our high level of reliability, while causing the minimum amount of customer disruption.
Serversaurus will continue to provide the quality of service Tract.com customers have been used to, and looks forward to being able to offer additional products and services, such as proven high-traffic and high-availability solutions.
Serversaurus is proud to be able to grow and continue it’s mission in providing both world-class cloud services from its Melbourne based headquarters, while also continuing its environmental and sustainable business practices.
