Canadian Web Hosting, a company delivering on-demand hosting solutions that include shared hosting, virtual private servers (VPS hosting), cloud hosting, and dedicated servers, has acquired Vancouver, BC-based eSecureData. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
eSecureData is a long standing Canadian Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider that has been delivering managed hosting, dedicated servers, colocation and domains to thousands of customers across Canada since 2007. The managed hosting company will be merging with Canadian’s Web Hosting’s staff while it expects to expand its data center operations.
An additional second eSecureData data center site is in the works in Toronto and will be added to the business in the next quarter. These data centers will integrate with Canadian Web Hosting’s cloud hosting services and dedicated CloudStream Network Backbone running across Canada. In total, this will expand Canadian Web Hosting’s presence in Canada to five data centers.
With this acquisition, Canadian Web Hosting expects to upgrade its portfolio of hosting services and increase its offerings catered towards businesses and corporations who require features like enterprise-grade infrastructure, SSAE 16 compliance and managed hosting support expertise to help meet their requirements.
“This is a huge opportunity to develop and grow our business and work with a world-class team,” said Kevin Liang, CEO of eSecureData. “Canada is starving for leadership in the datacenter and cloud space and with services like AURO and Canadian Cloud Hosting, and their understanding of what comes next in cloud, Canadian Web Hosting is definitely that company.”
IoT, Cloud Computing
Equally importantly, customers would see a significant improvement in performance and latency as Canadian Web Hosting expands its cloud initiative that is focused on improving capacity and performance across Canada as more of its cloud services come online. These include Canadian cloud computing, Internet-of-Things (IoT) and other services that require fast and software friendly infrastructure.
Canadian Web Hosting has completed several acquisitions since 2014 and is continuing to build out its end-to-end Canadian infrastructure to meet the significant demand they are seeing.
