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.
