RapidSwitch is delighted to announce that its parent company iomart Group plc has acquired another leading UK provider of dedicated servers.

Redstation owns and operates two data centres and offices in Gosport, Hampshire and provides a range of hosting services to around 3000 customers.

Angus MacSween, CEO of iomart Group plc, said: "The addition of Redstation will consolidate our position as the leading player in the dedicated server market in the UK. Redstation’s customers deliver a wide variety of cloud applications and services so this acquisition further underpins iomart’s position as the main provider of the complex infrastructure required by UK businesses to support the cloud environment.”
