Founded in 2004, Ubiquity Hosting offers services from datacenters distributed across seven cities in the US. Customers find the Ubiquity dedicated server platform integrated with its high-performance cloud infrastructure and 100% uptime SLA an attractive solution for their hosting needs. The Ubiquity high-performance platform, intuitive portal, and friendly customer service have resulted in an exceedingly loyal customer base and above-average industry growth.

“With the rapid expansion of our proprietary cloud platform, it makes sense for us to bring in the right partner to help expand and evolve our IaaS solutions for our dynamic customer base,” said Clint Chapman, CEO of Ubiquity Hosting. “Seaport Capital’s knowledge and understanding of our industry make them the ideal fit for us.”

Brett Guarnieri, Ubiquity Hosting CIO, commented, “We build our cloud hypervisors around high-clock-speed CPUs that meet or exceed 3.2 GHz, datacenter-grade solid state drives, 10 Gbps network infrastructure, and a low number of tenants per hypervisor that significantly reduces the chance of greedy neighbors. The performance level offered by our cloud solution translates into tremendous business value for our customer base.”

“The robust platform developed by Ubiquity Hosting offers customers superb value,” said Jim Collis, Seaport Capital Partner. “We are excited to partner with Clint, Brett, and the rest of the team at Ubiquity Hosting by providing capital and expertise to accelerate their development.”
