A merger under the Vivio brand will result in decreased costs, increased value, and higher quality service for both Vivio and Alurium clients.
Walla Walla, WA (PRWEB) June 24, 2013
Merging companies is not a decision that anyone can make lightly. It is a decision made after careful consideration for both the companies and the customers who depend on them. When asked about the merger, Peter Amiri, the CEO of Alurium, had this to say: “Vivio is one of the leaders in the ColdFusion hosting field and we believe the capabilities they bring to the table will add great value to all our clients.” Jordan Michaels, CEO of Vivio agreed: “Our primary consideration before we went ahead with this merger was: 'How will a merger effect both our clients?'. For example, if a merger would result in an over-worked support staff and lower quality service, then obviously it would not be something we would pursue. In this case, however, both companies are strong and vibrant, and we believe a merger under the Vivio brand will result in decreased costs, increased value, and higher quality service for both Vivio and Alurium clients.”
Vivio and Alurium are no strangers when it comes to working together. The companies have collaborated on a number of projects, including the Railo4cPanel project, which was designed to help enable hosting companies to offer open-source CFML hosting within the cPanel control panel by utilizing the open-source Railo CFML processing engine. Peter Amiri confirms, “I've worked with Jordan Michaels from Vivio for over fours years on various open source projects. The selfless dedication he has shown to the ColdFusion community has been awe inspiring.” He goes on to say, “Vivio has been on the forefront of working diligently to break down the barriers for the hosting community to provide CFML hosting. By developing tools to simplify the integration and configuration of CFML accounts and then making these tools available to the hosting community by open sourcing the tools, the number of hosts that can now offer CFML hosting has been increased exponentially.”
The companies say that the Alurium brand will be absorbed into the single Vivio brand. Support requests sent to the Alurium brand will be responded to by Vivio support technicians, and Alurium operations will be migrated to the Vivio Data Center in Washington State, USA.
