Hostway, a managed hosting provider delivering managed cloud infrastructure and application hosting solutions to customers worldwide, has acquired the Toronto-based MyHosting.com and Mail2Web lines of business from Ingram Micro. MyHosting.com and Mail2Web were part of SoftCom, a Canadian provider of domain name management web hosting, and cloud infrastructure services acquired by Ingram Micro in 2013.
Under the terms of the deal, the MyHosting.com brand, customers, and key employees will join Hostway, while Hostway will continue to operate and evolve the MyHosting brand, products, and platform.
“We are honored to have the talented and experienced MyHosting.com team members join our family of employees at Hostway and to expand our footprint in Canada with an office in Toronto in addition to our existing location in downtown Vancouver,” said John Enright, SVP and General Manager at Hostway. “We look forward to building upon the innovative products and features the MyHosting.com team has deployed on the CloudBlue platform, and to providing its loyal base of direct customers and resellers with the very best service.”
Hostway plans to leverage the skillset and experience of the MyHosting.com team members to further bolster its capabilities with Ingram Micro’s CloudBlue Automation platforms and will incorporate the platform more broadly in both its direct and wholesale channels. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“For the past 20 years, Hostway has been a dominant player in enabling the largest communications companies in North America to deliver a wide variety of value-added services to millions of subscribers,” said Emil Sayegh, President, and CEO of Hostway. “The acquisition of MyHosting.com and our partnership with Ingram Micro, in conjunction with the power and flexibility of the CloudBlue platform, further strengthen and diversify our automation capabilities. Automation platforms like CloudBlue – when combined with our passionate support team, experienced system operations team and skilled system integrators – make us the partner of choice for telecom and cable companies in need of turnkey solutions to offer additional value-added services to their customers.”
IT solutions distribution company Ingram Micro delivers a full spectrum of global technology and supply chain services to businesses around the world. Deep expertise in technology solutions, mobility, cloud, and supply chain solutions would enable its channel business partners to operate efficiently and successfully in the markets they serve.
“Hostway has been a valued, long-term partner of Ingram Micro, and this transaction builds further on our joint commitment to support the business requirements of our customers and the profitable growth of our respective businesses,” said Nimesh Dave, Executive Vice President Global Cloud Computing at Ingram Micro. “Our CloudBlue Automation platform is an excellent gateway supporting the rapidly growing demand for cloud-based solutions, one that enables leading service providers like Hostway to rapidly deploy and scale a wide variety of value-added services for their direct customers and partners.
