Dallas-based StackPath’s Merger With Server Density Called ‘A Perfect Fit’

As the two companies join forces, London will become StackPath's European headquarters with the Service Density team working "as the core of StackPath monitoring service team."


StackPath announced Monday that London-based Server Density is merging with the Dallas-based secure edge services platform provider founded in 2015 by tech entrepreneur Lance Crosby.

Server Density is a platform that offers proactive infrastructure monitoring for cloud, servers, and websites. 

“StackPath has the highest commitment to providing our customers frictionless services, complete visibility into their solutions, and building strong relationships with the open source community and the industry at large,” said Crosby, who is StackPath’s CEO and chairman, in a statement. “Server Density has followed the same commitments as it built execeptional technologies that are second to none and grew operations at cloud scale.”

Crosby called StackPath’s merger with Server Density “a perfect fit.” No financial terms of the deal were disclosed. 

Server Denisty enables users to monitor their websites and servers in the cloud or on-prem from a single console and API to easily diagnose problems, maintain uptime, and maximize server performance.

StackPath said the service will be integrated into the StackPath platform soon.

Server Density has more than 1,000 customers in 75 countires — bridging all size businesses and industries. Some customers include the United Kingdom’s National Health Service, e-commerce company Firebox, and the online game platform Stormancer, according to the release.

As the two companies join forces, London will become StackPath’s European headquarters with the Service Density team working “as the core of StackPath monitoring service team.”


In addition to its monitoring service, Server Density created HumanOps in 2016 — an open-source community that enables people to talk about the human aspects of running infrastructure. 

Such companies as Facebook, Yelp, Spotify, and PagerDuty have contributed to sharing ideas and best practices for life on call, dealing with technical debt, fatigue, and stresss at events globally as part of HumanOps, the release said. The events have been in such places as the U.S., the UK, Germany, France, and Poland.

Last year, StackPath introduced a pair of programs that provide cloud security and delivery expertise to tech startups and developers called StackPath Propel and StackPath Amp.

In February 2017, StackPath announced that it had acquired Highwinds, a content delivery network based in Florida.

Crosby founded StackPath after formerly heading SoftLayer Technologies, which he started in 2005. IBM bought SoftLayer in 2013 for $2 billion.
