Digital Pacific Founder and CEO, Andrew Koloadin, said the announcement is great news for the Australian hosting market.

Our team is very excited for the two businesses to come together. Our stories are quite similar, both starting in small Bondi apartments over 12 years ago growing to the established brands we are today. This has fostered very similar, customer-focused cultures at both organisations.

Both businesses entered the Australian market at similar times, starting with a few servers in their bedrooms. Now the two businesses combined with 70 employees have many years of experience and strong leadership teams firmly establishing themselves as leading service providers in the Australian hosting market. The two businesses, under the Digital Pacific leadership plan to continue to grow within the Australian hosting market.

CEO of Crucial, David Murray, said he is looking forward to joining the Digital Pacific team.

Digital Pacific is one of the oldest and most respected hosting companies in Australia. The standard its team sets for the community is exceptional, and the Crucial team has a similar culture and ethos. I am looking forward to our teams combining. It will present a great opportunity for our customers with additional resources, fantastic support and high performance infrastructure.

Earlier this year Crucial was taking its own bite out of the competition by acquiring Sydney domain hosting and registration firm AVS Networks. Digital Pacific's Andrew Koloadin says there are no planned changes to operations and business will continue to operate without disruption to all Crucial and Digital Pacific customers.
