Cloud services provider SherWeb on Tuesday announced that it has acquired ORCS Web Inc., a Windows-based managed hosting provider headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina. OrcsWeb will continue to operate as a wholly owned SherWeb subsidiary. Other terms of the agreement have not been disclosed.
"SherWeb's expansion into IaaS will enable us to offer customers and channel partners more value and choice from the cloud, without having to invest in or maintain complex infrastructure themselves," says SherWeb's Co-founder and President Matthew Cassar. "OrcsWeb naturally complements our overall business strategy because their depth of expertise in managed Windows hosting is one of several areas of diversification that will be critical to cloud services providers in the near future."
OrcsWeb represents SherWeb's third acquisition in as many years and its first in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) - a segment in which SherWeb has recently made significant inroads.

"SherWeb has built an outstanding reputation in the cloud industry in the last 15 years, and the fact that we can now give our customers access to SherWeb's comprehensive and award-winning portfolio of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud offerings all under one roof makes this acquisition a genuine win-win situation for everyone."
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
