SoftLayer and The Planet Plot Merger
U.S. hosting service providers SoftLayer and The Planet are planning a merger of the two companies into one entity.
The companies hope to have a deal in place by the beginning of the fourth quarter. The company will mostly use systems from SoftLayer, which will likely be the name of the merged providers as well, says The WHIR. Combined, the companies will generate roughly $300 million in revenue, serve more than 25,000 customers and manage more than 75,000 servers.
