Cloud services provider SherWeb has made its third acquisition in three years, and its first in the IaaS segment.

On Tuesday, Canada-based SherWeb said it has purchased ORCS Web Inc., a Windows-based managed hosting provider headquartered in North Carolina, for an undisclosed amount.

“SherWeb’s expansion into IaaS will enable us to offer customers and channel partners more value and choice from the cloud, without having to invest in or maintain complex infrastructure themselves," Matthew Cassar, co-founded and president of SherWeb, said in a prepared statement. “OrcsWeb naturally complements our overall business strategy because their depth of expertise in managed Windows hosting is one of several areas of diversification that will be critical to cloud services providers in the near future."

OrcsWeb has been providing shared, cloud and dedicated server hosting solutions since 1996; it’s known for its Complete Care Managed Services platform. The company has four data center locations in Charlotte.

SherWeb offers services including hosted Exchange and SharePoint. The company sells through the indirect channel.
