An email was just sent out to all clients of Versatile IT informing them of the acquisition. A copy is as follows.

 



This email is to notify you that Cloud Shards has acquired Versatile IT. Cloud Shards will continue to provide services to all Versatile IT customers, this includes all time left on your current payment plan.

 

Cloud Shards is well equipped to take on all Versatile IT clients and services with owned hardware in Los Angeles and Dallas.

 

Moving forward you will be migrated to Cloud Shards' infrastructure.

If you would like to be moved sooner and are confident in moving your own data please register an account on Cloud Shards' billing panel (https://www.cloudshards.com/register.php) and request a price match and credit for any time period left on your current plan with Versatile IT.

 

If you would like Cloud Shards to move you over to their infrastructure then please wait until you are contacted individually with further instructions.

 

Please note that this is a staged migration and to ensure a smooth process, this will take some time. You will still receive the quality of support Cloud Shards offers before being migrated.

 

Phoenix VPSs will be migrated to Los Angeles and Dallas VPSs will be kept in Dallas.

 

If you have any concerns about this migration please do not hesitate to open a ticket with either Cloud Shards or Versatile IT.

Well, that's certainly disappointing.  I liked the Phoenix location and already have a couple LA VPS. :/

Oh, one more thing, will the IP addresses be changing with this turn over?
Hello,

The location move is unfortunate but necessary. The IPs will be changed once you are moved over to Cloud Shards' existing node infrastructure.

Well congrats to Cloudshards.

What's the story on this?  More industry weakness?  Someone just offer the right amount to say yes?

Sounds like a solid operation acquired a solid operation. Good times. Best wishes to both! Keep being awesome, Cloud Shards.

I am just going to be honest, I could no longer look after the client base. I was committed to too many things which caused a large about of stress. Versatile IT's clients were always my top priority when discussing the terms of this acquisition.

Cloud Shards are a very stable and well presented organisation and I have no doubt everyone will benefit from this acquisition.

Sorry about that. Won't be looking at Phoenix any time soon sadly. The next West Coast location we'd probably look at is Nevada because we already have existing contracts with Viawest and they have a Tier 4 data center there.

Well congrats to Cloudshards.

The story is we're building more shards in the cloud :p

The worst thing about most acquisitions is having to be moved :(

All the best!
Sadly this is the case since they rent hardware. If they owned hardware, had their ASN etc in Dallas / Los Angeles, we'd just ask them to ship the stuff over and be done with. We can announce the IPs and it'd be smooth. Sorry for the inconvenience.
