iomart celebrates its 15th birthday!
iomart marks 15 years of delivering cloud and managed hosting services
Today iomart is delighted to be celebrating 15 years in business. It was on December 18th 1998 that the company was founded as an integrated internet and communications company by Scottish entrepreneur Angus MacSween to provide internet access and web hosting services to the UK.
From the early days of dial up to the cloud services of today, iomart has evolved to ensure that it delivers the cloud and managed hosting services that UK and European business and organisations require.
iomart started out with a small call centre in Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides. Today it employs over 300 staff and owns and manages state-of-the-art data centres in eight locations across the UK connected by a 40 Gigabit private fibre network. It protects over 15 petabytes of data for customers.
Angus MacSween, CEO of iomart Group plc, said: "iomart has invested in its infrastructure and its people to create one of the leading cloud companies in the UK and Europe. We will continue to focus on providing meaningful Service Level Agreements for our customers and working with them to deliver the bespoke support they need to be successful in their chosen markets."
"I would like to thank the staff at iomart and its associated companies for their continuing hard work and support as we look forward to another successful year ahead."
