Austrian holding company that includes, among others, the managed hosting and software development specialist Anexia and the data center operator Datasix, enters the North American mass market for the first time.
Klagenfurt/Toronto, 08/11/2015 – Via its stake in Anexia, ANX Holding already has its own data center capacities in the US and Canada but now its presence on the North American market is gaining substantial momentum:
With immediate effect, ANX is acquiring a 100% stake in the Canadian web hoster ISQ Solutions. With the provider of hosting services for SMEs and private individuals that is domiciled in Toronto, ANX is gaining around 11,000 new customers and at the same time first-class software for the automation of hosting services on Windows platforms. Thanks to its many years of experience in hosting services for major companies such as Lufthansa and Electronic Arts (EA), ANX is thus entering the market for mass hosting for the first time. Both companies who are privately owned have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
“In addition to the experienced team whom we will be taking over in full, the expertise since 2001 and the geographical location, it was particularly the Windows automation solution developed by the company itself and the self-hosted infrastructure that convinced us at ISQ Solutions,” says Alexander Windbichler, CEO of ANX Holding, commenting on the first takeover in the field of mass hosting by the holding company.
