Sydney-headquartered software aggregator Software Combined Group has announced the acquisition of Auckland-headquartered database disaster recovery vendor Dbvisit.

Founded 16 years ago, Dbvisit offers ‘standby’ or ‘warm’ disaster recovery software solutions across enterprise level databases, including Oracle SE, SQL Server and PostgresSQL databases.

Software Combined said Dbvisit has over 1,700 customers in 120 countries, with a “significant and growing presence in key markets, particularly in Europe.”

Dbvisit will retain its head office in Auckland and no changes are expected to staffing or their location, Software combined said.

“Dbvisit is attractive for the growing Software Combined family and our acquisition of the company is further proof of our commitment to growing our presence in New Zealand,” said Evert den Hollander, CEO of Software Combined.

“Our approach is focused on providing acquired software companies a platform for continuing growth and innovation. Dbvisit is a perfect example of the kind of software company we want to work with – it is stable, and it has strong, deep customer relationships.'”

“We are very confident that Dbvisit will benefit from the active support that Software Combined provides.”

Software Combined said its aggregation model will enable Dbvisit to continue its growth in key markets such as Europe and the US, while providing additional support such as finance, go-to-market and technical support.

The acquisition is the firm’s second purchase of a New Zealand technology company in 2024, having acquired Auckland-based self-service automation and business process specialist Activate in April.

Software Combined has acquired eight B2B software business since the company was founded in 2020.

“We want a home for our business that shares our values about business and people, providing us the environment to continue innovating and growing the way we like to. Software Combined offers exactly that,” said Mark Otten, CEO of Dbvisit.
