Vuzion’s Parent Company Cobweb Celebrates 20 years in the Cloud!

Vuzion was born from Cobweb Solutions, the number one independent cloud hosting provider in Europe, and today – Friday 25 November – marks Cobweb’s 20th anniversary.


Cobweb began in the cloud in 1996, with Cobweb founder, Executive Chairman, Paul Hannam setting up a website hosting service in a converted stable block in his back garden.

Cobweb Interweb

Early customers ranged from local shopkeepers (to whom Paul would have to explain websites and this new ‘inter web’ thing) to larger organisations, such as county councils.

 

In 2001 came partnership with Athene, Cobweb’s CTO Julian Dyer’s internet services provider, and in 2003 Hosted Exchange launched – with upgrades following in 2007, 2010, 2013. The portfolio of partners grew, as did the number of users, with 2016 seeing the company pass the 150,000 mark.

Microsoft CSP

“In 2014 Cobweb gained Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider status as a direct reseller and in November 2015 became a Microsoft 2-tier indirect Provider. So 2016 was the perfect time to launch Vuzion – building on Cobweb’s ethos of innovation, early adoption and hard work – and enabling us to share the experience of 20 years in the Cloud with our partners.


“We are on the cusp of a fourth industrial revolution, one that is going to change the technology we use and people’s lives more in the next 20 years than we’ve seen in the last 300.

Vuzion


“The future has never been brighter – for Cobweb, Vuzion, customers and partners.”
