Apps and development environments provided by Bitnami a YC startup that partnered with GoDaddy to produce a library of some apps that they may host with GoDaddy will be stop being supported on November 15.
“After serious consideration, we have decided to end-of-life our cloud servers’ product,” said by GoDaddy vice president Raghu Murthi. “Our goal from the start was to form easy and scalable services for little and medium business house owners. We’re pleased with what we have a tendency to engineered and currently, we have a tendency to area unit that specializes in building strong and scalable solutions supported OpenStack infrastructure.”
“We’re really about enabling small business to get started and grow,” GoDaddy’s hosting and security SVP Jeff King said. “You have a long way to go on GoDaddy’s before you consider bringing your business into a dedicated data center.”
Recently GoDaddy’s $1.79 billion purchase of Host Europe Group, distended the company’s push into small business hosting across the world.HEG had been the largest privately-owned web services provider in Europe, supporting small businesses and web experts.
One of the ways that the corporate hopes to deal with the trend are by giving numerous services for alleviating day-after-day operations. As a part of the trouble, GoDaddy picked up a maker of web site security tools known as Sucuri INC. earlier this year and previously bought 2 startups that centered on simplifying WordPress administration.
Millions of firms use GoDaddy to host their domains, and therefore the company has distended international business over the last four years.
