Hostway and Hostingannounced the merger of the two organizations, combining to create one of the largest managed clod services platforms in the world.
The combined organization has 14 data centers in five countries across three continents and will be led by Emil Sayegh as CEO and president.

“Both Hostway and Hosting have always had an uncompromising commitment to customer service and an incredible history of pioneering leading-edge solutions into the market. This merger is a natural progression of the two companies’ focus on providing solutions for CIOs and IT leaders to reduce costs, mitigate risks and increase business agility,” said Sayegh. “Our combined strengths benefit all our customers by delivering even more product sets and the scalability to adapt to clients’ changing needs. We will be in a unique position to help customers every step of the way as they make the journey to hybrid cloud environments while protecting them against ever-emerging threats.”
Hosting and Hostway will continue to operate under two separate brands and operational models for a limited period during the interim integration. The company intends to fully merge all functions and operate under a single brand within the next 12 months.
