Two hosting companies are merging.

Austin-based Hostway and Denver-based are tying the knot, the companies announced.

Emil Sayegh, who currently heads Hostway, will be the company’s CEO and president.

The two companies combine to have 14 data centers in five countries across three continents. They have about 1,000 employees.

Hostway is primarily a Windows Azure shop., which actually goes by the generic name Hosting, focuses on AWS. They manage services on these public clouds as well as provide their own hosting infrastructure.

Both companies were founded in the late 1990s at a time when the hosting business was dramatically different than today.
