Its traditional competitors are other email hosting companies, but its move into cloud computing has brought it into sharper competition with the likes of Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.
Cloudkick was funded by Y Combinator, which is best known for funding consumer-focused startups like Reddit and Loopt. Cloudkick’s customers are mostly technology companies, such as Vimeo and Mozilla.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
