Cologne, September 17th, 2015. Early in 2015, HEG, Europe’s largest privately-owned hosting provider, expanded its market-leading position in managed hosting with the acquisition of PlusServer AG. Subsequently, HEG continued with this development by bundling all managed hosting activities under the joint PlusServer brand. The legal merger of PlusServer AG and Host Europe Solutions GmbH to become PlusServer GmbH has now resulted in the official formation of the largest provider of custom hosting solutions in the DACH (German-speaking) region.
“This merger is highly beneficial for all the managed hosting customers of HEG,” explains PlusServer CEO Thomas Strohe. “As the largest provider of custom business solutions, we can now offer our customers even better service than before. For example, technical support that is available around the clock with direct contact persons as well as a next-business-day delivery of hardware,” he continues. Thomas Ebbers, Head of Product Management, adds: “Moreover, our expanded and optimised product portfolio enables a flexible combination of managed hosting, cloud and colocation. In short, customers will enjoy the best of all managed-hosting HEG brands that were previously operating in parallel.”
In eleven data centres with the highest security standards, including eight in Germany, PlusServer currently hosts more than 5,000 corporate clients from 52 countries. For these customers PlusServer has implemented both special hosting solutions for online shop systems – for example, Intershop or Magento – and flexible, cloud-based outsourcing solutions. Customers like Zalando, Bayer, Lufthansa City Center, ProSiebenSat.1, REWE and Spiegel Online demonstrate the high quality and range of the technical solutions. With offices in all major German cities, PlusServer can also guarantee direct and personal contact with customers.
