The Group will remain focused on providing practical, cost-effective solutions to customers’ IT needs,” commented iomart Group CEO Angus MacSween in a press release.
Continuing, MacSween stated, “Customers increasingly demand reliable IT infrastructure-as-a-service as the need for a scalable and flexible way of working grows; with EQSN’s expertise, iomart is even better placed to deliver this.”
EQSN’s services include application & database management, security, virtualization, backup, disaster recovery, and more.
Meanwhile, iomart has been busy. In September, the company launched a hosting control panel with a revamped user interface.
