Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) July 28, 2010
Hosting Metro, Inc. announced today that it has reached an agreement with long-time Drupal web host company Drupal Value Hosting. With the agreement in place, Hosting Metro will migrate existing services and marketing to its own operations. In doing so, Hosting Metro will be able to offer expanded customer support through a dedicated 24/7 support line, as well as additional hosting features previously unavailable to Drupal Value Hosting customers including VPS, Dedicated Servers and shared web hosting.
Tony Chu, CEO of Hosting Metro stated, “By acquiring Drupal Value Hosting, we've looked to increase our support of Drupal and its development community by integrating the knowledge-base of Drupal Value Hosting’s existing development team into our already reliable infrastructure and application network. As a hosting company who specializes in application support, this is something that our customers have been asking for and with only 1% of the web running on Drupal there is a still a lot of room for growth.”
Amit Ghupta, former CEO of Drupal Value Hosting has agreed to stay on with the new company and will continue to provide development and consultation services dedicated to the Drupal community. “Hosting Metro is a great company, and I am very confident that they will exceed the needs of their customers by delivering outstanding support. I have been especially impressed with their solid infrastructure and there ability to deliver the most reliable uptime in the industry.”
