    [EN] OnApp compra SolusVM

    by David Hamilton on September 16, 2014

    Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform provider for the hosting and service provider market, OnApp has bought SolusVM, a light-weight virtual server management system used by thousands of service providers to offer Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud hosting.

    Combined with SolusVM, OnApp now has more than 3,000 customers, and a product portfolio that spans the complete spectrum of Infrastructure-as-a-Service. OnApp’s platform lot of add-ons for web hosts and service providers, whereas SolusVM is more barebones and ideal for offering services similar to a hosting provider like DigitalOcean.

    “This is a significant transaction that adds a few million to our revenue, a large number of customers to our community, and a new OnApp product that enables the kind of streamlined, bare-bones cloud that developers love,” OnApp CEO Ditlev Bredahl said. “It’s a perfect complement to the fully integrated cloud, dedicated, CDN and storage services that the core OnApp platform brings to service providers.”

    The deal promises to make OnApp operate more efficiently by bringing supply and demand in line. The OnApp Federation and Market, where companies can buy and sell excess CDN and compute resources, has many members supplying resources. So much so that it outweighs supply. Bredahl told The WHIR that SolusVM, with its large customer base, could help balance supply and demand.

    Service providers will also be able to use the OnApp portfolio to sell services based on other container-based and hardware virtualization platforms such as Xen, KVM, VMware and OpenVZ.

    Following the acquisition, OnApp will extend SolusVM to be able to access infrastructure from the OnApp Federation, the world’s largest public cloud, which is estimated to be completed in around 60 days following the acquisition.

    SolusVM employees will now be working at OnApp’s London office, however they will continue to operate as a separate business division, and Bredahl said he has no immediate plans to change SolusVM’s aggressive pricing model. An enterprise SolusVM license costs $10 per month and allows for unlimited number of VPS to be hosted on the Master or a “Slave Only” license for $2.50 per month per slave VPS it’s installed on.

    The deal (for an undisclosed amount) was made in cash from OnApp’s operating budget.

    Press-release

    London, 16th September 2014 - OnApp has signed a definitive agreement to acquire SolusVM, the virtual server management system used by thousands of service providers to offer Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud hosting. The acquisition extends OnApp’s position as the leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform provider for the hosting and service provider market, with more than 3,000 customers, and a product portfolio that spans the complete spectrum of Infrastructure-as-a-Service.

    Following the acquisition, OnApp will extend SolusVM to be able to access infrastructure from the OnApp Federation, the world’s largest public cloud. The OnApp Federation is based around OnApp Market - a wholesale service provider-to-service provider marketplace for compute, RAM, storage, and CDN capacity, that currently covers more than 170 global locations. The addition of 2,000 SolusVM service providers to the OnApp Federation will create significant demand in the OnApp Market, which translates to new revenue streams for infrastructure suppliers.

    Commenting on the news, Ben Welch-Bolen, CEO of Site5, a long-term OnApp and SolusVM customer, said:

    “This is a great move for OnApp and the SolusVM community. There’s a big market for basic VPS services and SolusVM is already a well-regarded solution for hosts looking for a proven, no-frills platform. Now SolusVM has the backing of OnApp I’m looking forward to seeing it develop and grow while keeping that pure focus. Opening up SolusVM to the OnApp Federation is an interesting move, and I think providers like Digital Ocean and Linode will be keeping a watchful eye on how that develops. OnApp has disrupted established markets more than once in the past and could be about to have a big impact again.”

    “This is very cool news for OnApp and SolusVM customers, and, we hope, for the whole hosting industry,” said OnApp CEO, Ditlev Bredahl. “This is a significant transaction that adds a few million to our revenue, a large number of customers to our community, and a new OnApp product that enables the kind of streamlined, bare-bones cloud that developers love. It’s a perfect complement to the fully integrated cloud, dedicated, CDN and storage services that the core OnApp platform brings to service providers.”

    “Most importantly, though, this is the next phase in the growth of the OnApp Federation and the OnApp Market. You have to balance supply and demand when you’re building a new marketplace. Over the last couple of years we’ve built up an amazing supply of infrastructure in the OnApp Federation, with a huge range of price and performance options for CDN and now compute resources too. Bringing the Solus community into OnApp will create a huge boost on the demand side, and enable SolusVM providers to offer quick and easy cloud servers that can be deployed on demand, all over the world.”

    The SolusVM team, led by Phill Bandelow, will become part of the OnApp technical team and will be expanded to increase the pace of innovation and development.

    “We’re delighted to be joining OnApp, to be part of the force changing the hosting industry,” said Phill. “Adding SolusVM to the OnApp portfolio is a natural fit, and is great news for our customer base who can look forward to a faster pace of innovation while getting access to the service and support that OnApp is famous for. We’re getting the backing and stability of an industry leader, and a team that understands hosting inside-out, and cares about delivering what SolusVM users need.”

    With the addition of SolusVM, the OnApp product range now enables service providers to offer the full spectrum of Infrastructure-as-a-Service products, from bare-bones cloud servers running on SolusVM, to fully integrated cloud, bare metal, hybrid smart servers, storage and CDN running on the OnApp platform. It also means that service providers can use the OnApp portfolio to sell services based on Xen, KVM, VMware and OpenVZ, the most popular container-based and hardware virtualization platforms.

    The terms of this cash deal were not disclosed.

    Por um acaso lí o seguinte tópico ontem no WHT US, o que define bem a motivação da compra.

    It seems that when we 'loose' a deal at OnApp, it's either to something more 'focused' and cost effective (generally SolusVM) for hosters looking to build a Linode/Digital Ocean like business, OR we loose to OpenStack teams with loads of developers and very specific plans where OnApp may not be the best fit - that would typically be inside Telco's.

    We do see a lot of traction in the Digital Ocean market though, and we've got initiatives on the way to help our clients target that scene better with our platforms.

    I hope that helps!

    Outro que acomodam o mercado low-end, não vejo a razão para OnApp. Não é realmente um concorrente para OnApp, e nenhum dos clientes atuais da OnApp se beneficiaria de mudança para SolusVM.

    São produtos diferentes.
    OnApp irá continuar a ser Cloud, Redundant, HA enabled.
    SolusVM irá continuar a ser Non Redundant, lowcost, para empresas/provedores VPS.

    Considero, na minha visão, uma ampliação de mercado da OnApp, não uma aquisição para evitar concorrência.
