Re: RamNode and InMotion Hosting

Hey Everyone,

My name is Sunil and I’m the co-founder of InMotion Hosting. I understand that there has been some speculation about the acquisition of RamNode by InMotion Hosting. We were planning on sending out the official press releases next week, but I wanted to give you a brief update here.

  • InMotion Hosting, via our acquisition arm WebVentures.io, did acquire the assets of RamNode in early February.
  • Nick and I really felt that InMotion Hosting was the best move for his customers and employees.
  • InMotion Hosting will continue to run the RamNode brand as-is. No re-branding, consolidation or changes to the core product line is on the table right now.
  • All staff, outside of Nick, have come over in the deal. It is my core focus that we will do our best to maintain the culture, quality of support and technical experience that you all have come to expect from RamNode.
  • Nick is a great guy, he and I have spent quite a bit of time on the phone getting to know each other personally and professionally. Additionally, the CTO of RamNode is a former InMotion Hosting employee, and his technical background and experience will be valuable as we grow the RamNode business.
  • Along with a match in core values, there is synergy in our technical roadmaps, which we plan to build on. Especially our shared vision of building easily-accessible and high-performance clouds on OpenStack.

Hope this provides some clarity. Be on the lookout for our official press releases next week.

Thank You,

Sunil Saxena
Co-Founder, InMotion Hosting

    Thanks Sunil and thank you to all of our customers from LET over the years! I'm excited about the future of RamNode as part of InMotion. As Sunil indicated, the team is still onboard--it's just time for me to pursue other endeavors. I'll still be around for a while to assist with transition, but you all are in good hands!

    @sunilsaxena : you mention synergies. Given that InMotion Hosting appears to only have servers in US datacenters, do you plan to keep Ramnode's NL offering and pricing?

    I remember the time InMotion offered me $17k/year to move to Virginia Beach. That was funny. I was thankful in the end, wouldn’t have likely had the same career. But it does make me wonder how they treat their support team. It was an immediate turn off from the company as a whole for me. Sysadmins living in poverty and all, which is all you could do for those wages in that area.

    I’m not saying I’m a great catch but Linux admin work is generally considered a bit above making French fries.

    Kinda expected, if you invest money, you expect a return.
    I was wondering where they gonna cut it.

    Thank you for being a loyal customer of RamNode, and I understand the concerns brought up here about pricing.

    Our focus is actually not on pricing right now. At the moment, we are working on plans to add more unmanaged products, improve user experience, increase redundancy within our OpenStack clouds, and expand core network services to provide faster speeds and better reliability.

    If you have questions about your account, feel free to reach out. I'm happy to help :)

    Right now means that after "increasing redundancy" with openstack.
