Australian managed cloud services provider Fluccs has announced its acquisition of 3 rival cloud infrastructure and services companies, Exigent Australia, Virtual DC and 10TB Servers.
It’s a bold move for the provider, as it aims to expand its Australian footprint and provide a local alternative for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and managed cloud services.
Headquartered in Brisbane, Fluccs provides managed services, IaaS and hosting to Australian and International businesses, not-for-profit, corporate and government clients.
The company says it was the first Australian-based cloud computing provider to offer a complete suite of public and private cloud computing services, customisable for any organisation, large or small.
The acquisition of Exigent Australia and its associated brands aims to expand Fluccs’ national service capacity, including its colocation services, with data centre capacity added in Sydney and Melbourne.
Angus Thomson, Fluccs founder and CEO says, “We are excited to be growing in the face of international corporations expanding into Australia, we strongly believe there will always be a place for Australian companies that provide local service from local infrastructure.
“The addition of Exigent Australia clients and infrastructure into the Fluccs family further increases our service capability and means we can continue to offer high quality, reliable services at extremely competitive price points.”
Fluccs servers are located at NEXTDC’s flagship data centre “B1” in Brisbane, Queensland’s most fibre-connected commercial data centre, which benefits from the fibre-network infrastructure in the Brisbane CBD.
The Exigent Australia acquisition adds servers located at Equinix data centres in Sydney and Melbourne.
John Wooler, Exigent Australia founder and managing director says, “Merging our infrastructure and service offering with the Fluccs Australian Cloud business is an extremely positive move for Exigent Australia clients and for the Fluccs business nationally.
“We are impressed with Fluccs’ client satisfaction ethos, its focus on keeping data in Australia, its security measures and its competitive pricing," he says.
"I am looking forward to becoming part of the Fluccs team and growing this successful Australian business.”
Fluccs says it is 100% Australian owned and operated and has over 20 years’ experience providing hosted cloud services to the Australian market.
