DigitalOcean Acquires Cloudways In A $350 Million Deal

Companies can intuitively mark their digital footprint as DigitalOcean acquires Cloudways

Having worked together since 2014, it’s been announced that DigitalOcean acquires Cloudways, a cloud hosting and software as a service (SaaS) company for small to medium sized businesses (SMBs).

“The acquisition immediately strengthens our ability to enable builders to get their ideas on the internet, launch a business quickly, and grow and scale effortlessly,” said CEO of DigitalOcean, Yancey Spruill. “In addition, we are excited to be joining forces with the entire Cloudways team and together will continue our mission to simplify cloud computing so builders can spend more time creating software that changes the world.”

Cloud computing is made simpler by DigitalOcean so that developers may devote more time to producing applications. With its fully managed services and infrastructure, DigitalOcean assists developers, startups, and SMBs in building, deploying, and scaling applications in a quick and productive manner.

“Running multiple e-commerce stores requires safe, fast and flexible hosting,” said Heatxperts partner Jens Madsen on the announcement that DigitalOcean acquires Cloudways. “This we know, but we are not server experts. By moving to Cloudways and DigitalOcean, we not only got the speed and the flexibility we needed for our e-commerce stores, we also got a highly intuitive and easy-to-use interface, easy server scaling, 1-click staging environments along with world-class support.”

The Maltese firm Cloudways continues to provide onboarding management tools for SMBs who outsource. Web hosting capabilities will get an expanded result as DigitalOcean acquires Cloudways. These additional offerings will give freelance devs, digital agencies, e-commerce, blogs, and WordPress site builders more options to choose from.

“SMBs love simplicity, performance, predictability, affordability, and great support,” states DigitalOcean founder and CEO, Aaqib Gadit. “Together with DigitalOcean, we can turbocharge our mission of helping SMBs grow through our cloud offerings.”
