Worldwide sales at the company, which covers 74 countries, have increased 30 per cent each year since it started in 2003.
Russell, a former venture capitalist, said: ‘I feel like I’m back in Silicon Valley with another exciting, rapidly growing and already successful software company.
‘What Loadbalancer.org does, and does extremely well, is at the very heart of IT and the demand for such a tried-and-tested tool as theirs will only go up.’
