The German Container as a Service (CaaS) provider Sloppy.io GmbH (“Sloppy.io”) has been acquired by PCextreme B.V. (“PCextreme”), a fast-growing Dutch Internet Service Provider that is part of Total Webhosting Solutions (“TWS”).
Cologne, [4 February 2020] – Sloppy was founded in 2016 and offers fast, simple and secure Docker hosting solutions. Founder and CTO Mike Michel is pleased with the sale to a strong new owner that can take the unique technology to the next level and offers all kinds of new opportunities.
Mike: “We were looking for a buyer that could guarantee the continuity of our software, and above all accelerate the application of the technology and take it to the next level. At that time Lennert den Teuling of PCextreme contacted us. They understand us and were able to guarantee the continuity of Sloppy and complete the transaction swiftly without a complex process.”
Lennert: “Sloppy.io has developed a stable Container as a Service technology that preceded years of development. With the acquisition of the software, we maintain our leading position in the field of fast and scalable infrastructure. It is nice to have this innovative CaaS technology in-house and to be able to further develop it. We will also be able to offer this technology to sister companies within TWS for the benefit of their customers.”
Matthieu van Amerongen, CEO of TWS: “Within TWS, affiliated companies are given the opportunity and the space to make their own acquisitions that can add value to themselves and to the group. Sloppy.io is a good example, in which we have full confidence in Lennert to further develop this innovative software within PCextreme.”
Sloppy.io is a Container as a Service company based in Cologne (Germany). It has a unique position in its market due to its user-friendliness. Where well-known CaaS platforms such as Kubernetes are difficult to comprehend for the average user, Sloppy.io is lightning fast and very easy to use.
