Founded in 1998, UKFast has grown to become the UK’s largest privately-owned hosting provider. UKFast offers market-leading cloud and hosting platforms that enable businesses and government organizations to outsource their critical IT infrastructure. The company recently ventured into public cloud, providing integration and support for AWS and Azure.
UKFast is known for its world-class service and has five fully owned, tier 3 data centers and a customer base of approximately 6,000 companies.
The UKFast team was drawn to Inflexion’s experience in supporting technology businesses and its track record of successful IPOs. This transaction valued UKFast, which will continue to be majority-owned and led by the founding management team, at £405M ($533M).
