FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 -- In line with the continued growth of the companies of XBT Holding, the relaunch of the holding website reflects the corporate ascension of XBT to the ranks of the worlds' top providers of internet infrastructure.
The synergies achieved by the companies that comprise XBT Holding are shown in the structure and design of the new site, where it becomes apparent that XBT Holding is so much more than the sum of its parts.
The explosive growth that followed the founding of Webzilla made the company a major bandwidth player on a global scale. IPTransit was incorporated in 2009 in order to leverage the economies of scale created by this growth, offering bandwidth itself as a product and creating a global Multihomed IP- transit network and handling peering agreements with the biggest Tier-1 providers (see iptransit.com).
A survey of Webzilla customers already using CDN services was the basis of the development and the 2011 launch of Universal CDN, a service that avoided the faults and expanded the strengths of CDN services available at the time. To this day, through constant testing, Universal CDN remains the most competitive an effective way to distribute any media globally (see ucdn.com).
Having focused solely on the higher end of the hosting market until then, in 2012, with the launch of Fozzy, the offer of virtual private servers and shared hosting was presented to the IT world. In a market of tall tales "unlimited" plans, Fozzy offered something that was sorely missing: transparency and honesty about the available resources the customer is guaranteed. The bedrock of the hugely successful dedicated hosting business of Webzilla became the launch pad of the growth of Fozzy, leveraging the top tier hardware, the security of Webzilla and the low latency high speed connections of IPTransit, to offer a service of the highest quality, in prices that are competitive even in emerging markets such as India. A special offering of VPS for Forex is the industry leader, as well as Linux and Windows VPS (see fozzy.com).
What follows is an extremely fertile period of strategic acquisitions. Root SA, the most advanced hosting provider of Luxembourg came under the fold of XBT in 2012. Strategically located in the geographic center of Europe, Root offers the ideal hosting and co-location solution to financial institutions conducting high frequency arbitrage transactions, as well as being able to provide equal low latency to game companies and many corporate customers (see server.lu).
It was the constant request of these corporate customers to be referred to an app developer by XBT that led to the selection of IBEE Solutions as the final acquisition of 2012. An agile outfit with offices in Dallas, TX, and Hyderabad, India, IBEE has grown its portfolio to more than 2500 satisfied enterprise customers, developing web and mobile apps that stand out for their sophistication and aesthetics.
The addition of the domain servers.com in 2013 and its incorporation into the offerings of Root with the concurrent expansion of Root as a global player brings us to the current moment of the relaunch of the website of XBT Holding, which is only a snapshot of the momentum of carefully managed growth.
The seven companies that operate under the umbrella of XBT Holding have come to be leaders in respect to competitiveness, offering the best price performance ratio in their fields.
By bringing this positioning to emerging markets, providing the same quality of service, reliability, and state-of-the-art infrastructure that was developed for the more mature US and European markets with the highly competitive price/performance ratio, almost exponential growth was the natural outcome.
Combine the mentioned above with the benefits to the customers that the synergies of the companies of XBT Holding can achieve for them, not to mention the ease and simplicity of dealing with just one invoice for all IT infrastructure, and application development, and the basis of success becomes apparent.
The numbers, as can be seen on the new site, speak for themselves: 16000 servers, across 5 datacenters in 3 continents, serve 4600 customers in 7 languages on a 1500Gbps private multihomed network with multiple connections to the biggest Tier-1 providers.
This announcement is not about numbers though, and even not about the great companies that XBT Holding consists of. It is about the new website of XBT Holding, the online home of all this. It may be a cliche to say that it is a paradigm of usability, and a great design, but so be it. Visit the new xbt.com and find out for yourself.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
