Digital Pacific acquires managed cloud web hosting provider Anchor

Digital Pacific has acquired Sydney firm Anchor Hosting for an undisclosed amount, creating a company with more than 100,000 customers internationally.

Founded in 2000, Anchor has made a name for itself as both a hosting provider as well as an Amazon Web Services partner, supporting global startups such as developer community GitHub and Apple beta testing site TestFlight, as well as Australian customers Booktopia and the Bureau of Meteorology.

Digital Pacific, which uses carrier-grade equipment from Juniper Networks and Cisco, offers a range of internet services, including domain name registrations, hosting, virtual private servers and dedicated servers, with its primary facility in Sydney among five data centres around the globe.
