UK enterprise web hosting provider Othello Technology Systems Ltd
(www.othellotech.net) announced on Monday 26/March/2012 it has acquired the domain, hosting, vps, cloud and SaaS business of Uk Cloud Ltd (www.theukcloud.com).
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Othello said it acquired the company to attain key clients and extended their successful virtual private server and cloud hosting platforms.
The acquisition brings to Othello another 1000 virtual servers.
Managing Director Rob Golding discussing the integration said "For UK Cloud clients this will increase the level of support, service and significantly improve customer satisfaction. And for Othello clients we gain another virtualisation plaform they can use, so it's 'win-win'".
UK Cloud Ltd traded as quickvps and qualityservers before rebranding and concentrating on Cloud Servers with dedicated resources, high-availability, centralised storage and peak-performance, based on the Citrix XenServer architecture.
VPS and Cloud customers of UK Cloud are eligible for several free upgrades which include 24-hour technical support, cheaper domain registration/transfer/renewal fees and access to the Othello Client Portal.
The UK Cloud servers are currently located in Manchester, UK and will be migrating as part of the deal to the Othello Tier-3 London Docklands DataCentre.
"UK Cloud makes our 3rd takeover this year, and Othello are actively looking to make more acquisitions, especially UK domain registrars and web hosts" continued Rob, "We have the experience and systems in place to make deals happen.
