Leaseweb Global has acquired Canadian cloud provider iWeb, making the North American nation its third-biggest international region by revenue, behind the Netherlands and the US.

Founded in 1996, iWeb, previously part of INAP, offers dedicated servers and cloud hosting from its three Montréal-based data centres.

iWeb employs 92 people across its Montréal data centres, providing global connectivity via ISP peering in Montréal and Tier 1 providers, offering users dedicated servers, private cloud, security services and colocation.

Greater Montréal is a fast-growing hub for organisations that rely on powerful, reliable and secure cloud and data center infrastructure.

Con Zwinkels CEO at Leaseweb Global, said: “We have followed the development of iWeb with great interest for a number of years, and as a business with very similar DNA to our own, we know they will bring a wide range of complementary services and skills to our presence in Canada.

“They live and breathe hosting, have a deep understanding of the requirements of Canadian customers, and we’re delighted to welcome them to the Leaseweb team.”

Roberto Montesi, CEO at iWeb, said: “Today is a very exciting day for iWeb employees, customers and partners. We are joining a team that is focused on product, growth and customer experience.

“We have long admired Leaseweb as a competitor. Now, as colleagues, we look forward to deploying new offerings quickly in our Montreal location to match the Leaseweb portfolio. This is an exciting state in our journey and ensures that Canada becomes a huge part of the future Leaseweb success story.”
