On June 17, 2011, 8x8, Inc. announced that it had successfully acquired Zerigo, Inc., an American company that specializes in managed DNS services, virtual private servers, and tools used to monitor cloud-based server operations.
8x8’s acquisition of Zerigo is seen by industry analysts as part of a larger plan to increase the company’s cloud-based offerings through organic and inorganic activities. 8x8 previously purchased Central Host, Inc. in May 2010 in order to enhance its portfolio of managed server solutions.
The acquisition of Zerigo should provide 8x8 with greater cloud computing capabilities that will help small businesses lower the overall cost of IT infrastructure while achieving greater performance levels than before. The improved cloud computing capabilities are also expected to reduce IT management requirements and enhance the overall flexibility of the system.
Tom Morgan, the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Zerigo, Inc., released a public statement about the acquisition. He declared that his company was thrilled to join the 8x8 team and that 8x8 had a world-class support infrastructure that would allow Zerigo to focus their attention on research and development.
