Dyn, a Internet Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) business, has acquired Verelo, a Toronto-based startup that provides uptime and performance analytics, as well as malware detection and site health monitoring services.
Dyn does not intend on selling the Verelo services long term and instead will offer its performance-orientated tools as a free service to their customers and as a sales tool for prospects.
Verelo, founded in early 2012 by Andrew McGrath and Michael Curry, made its official public launch in June after graduating from Toronto’s Extreme Startups incubator program.
Verelo’s monitoring services allows customers to check their websites from multiple locations around the world. If downtime, database connection errors or other problems are detected, customers are notified by SMS, phone or email.
Dyn CEO Jeremy Hitchcock said, “Our mantra is ‘Uptime is the Bottom Line’ so we are always looking for great opportunities to prevent downtime,” said Hitchcock. “Acquiring Verelo allows us to offer more innovative services to our customers. We don’t want to just fix downtime. We want to prevent it.”
