Platform and automation facilitator Plesk has announced the acquisition of virtual management system provider, SolusVM. With this acquisition, Plesk aims to deliver hosting providers and web professionals with a wide set of tools to operate and manage their servers.
According to Plesk, there is a strong demand for scalable and customizable hosting products and solutions from individual developers as well as hosting companies. They say that these customers are always looking for sophisticated tools to manage their hosting needs.
Plesk say that the acquisition of SolusVM allows both parties to expand their product portfolio – thereby offering a holistic set of technical security and automation tools across all platforms. They add that this acquisition will also help them extend their footprint globally.
Speaking about this acquisition, Nils Hueneke, CEO at Plesk, commented:
We’re very happy to have Solus Virtual Manager and their complete VPS management solution on board. SolusVM lets companies of any size manage virtual machines – from one central user interface, with security and ease.
This makes it a breeze for hosting providers, resellers and end-users to provision, manage and sell virtual machines.
SolusVM are excited about this deal and are looking forward to team up with Plesk. Phill Bandelow, Team Lead at SolusVM, commented:
SolusVM fits naturally into the growing Plesk portfolio, providing new and compelling opportunities for our customer base.
We’re excited about the new innovations we’ll bring to customers. And the new opportunities they’ll get from the WebOps services and automation that Plesk is known for.
