Bloomington, Illinois – (The Hosting News) – December 4, 2006 – Dedicated and colocation web hosting provider, Ubiquity Server Solutions, has merged with Ventrilo, Teamspeak, game server, IRCd, and shell hosting company, DarkStar Communications.
The newly merged entity will maintain both companies as brands under a new parent company, ”Nobis Technology Group” an Illinois Limited Liability Corporation. While DarkStar Communications currently operates servers in 20 cities in 11 different countries, making them one of the most diverse hosts online of any niche, as well as one of the largest voice communications services online in both Ventrilo and Teamspeak markets. Ubiquity has made its focus on just one location to date, building up its presence offering diverse b2b IT services from 350 E. Cermak in Chicago, before moving towards its first expansion by opening collocation at 1950 N. Stemmons Highway in Dallas last summer.
Jake Mertel, Communications’ General Manager at DarkStar remarked, ”This (merger) means a lot of things for a lot of people. Both companies obviously benefit massively in the boost of both economies of scope as well as economies of scale, but that’s only the start. The pieces fit perfectly to allow either half of the puzzle to a caliber of international services never before seen in the hosting industry.”
According to the company, Nobis has made it clear that they will be doing little to tamper with their current services (unlike many recent mergers in the hosting industry), due to the scarcely overlapping scope of either company’s current services. The company will instead be building upon its current offerings, utilizing the resources that either organization is able to bring to the table. Ubiquity’s Chief Technical Officer Clint Chapman elaborated regarding plans for the future:
“Ubiquity prides its collocation and dedicated hosting on our flexibility and abilities to meet virtually any set of needs. There is no question that DarkStar’s particular set of needs for the lowest-latency, highest availability networks stretch our requirements to build consistently high performance networks the extreme. It’s one thing to sell someone a dedicated server and tell them they won’t have any problems with latency-critical applications. It’s another thing when you can honestly tell your clients that you’ve carefully sculpted a network in every city and test it daily with your own world-class hosting operations of every shape, to be certain that doesn’t ever change.”
