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. Earlier this year, SherWeb was named a Microsoft 2014 World Hosting Partner of the Year Finalist for its soon-to-be-launched Performance Cloud Servers, which promise the fastest performance on the market.
OrcsWeb has been providing shared, cloud and dedicated server hosting solutions since 1996 and is best known in the industry for its Complete Care Managed Services and extensive experience in Microsoft-platform hosting. It has four data center locations in Charlotte.
"We look forward to sharing our unique expertise with the larger SherWeb family while even further enhancing the day-to-day experience OrcsWeb customers currently enjoy," says Brad Kingsley, Founder of OrcsWeb. "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."
