Intrahost acquires GoCloud

Hessle-based Intrahost Ltd has announced that it has agreed to the acquisition of GoCloud Ltd, a leading UK provider of cloud-based hosted desktops. Intrahost is already a major investor in GoCloud and provided the IT infrastructure upon which GoCloud's hosted desktop services operated.

Mike Tree, MD of Intrahost said, "Intrahost will shortly be announcing a raft of new hosting services and we are naturally delighted to bring onboard the innovative virtual desktop service so successfully pioneered by GoCloud in the UK.

"This harmonisation of our services will bring advantages to both companies and both sets of customers. It will remove unnecessary duplication of effort, reduce overheads and enable us to bring a fuller, more engaging portfolio of hosted services to UK businesses, both locally and nationally."

Intrahost will be introducing Hosted Exchange, Hosted Sharepoint and Hosted CRM services that will compliment the hosted desktops currently supplied by GoCloud.

Intrahost will continue to provide the hosted services for KC's "KC Cloud" hosted desktops.

Matt Nunns, MD of GoCloud Ltd will assume the role of Technical Director of Intrahost Ltd upon completion of the acquisition.
