Six Degrees Acquires Carrenza

Six Degrees Group has acquired cloud service provider Carrenza, strengthening its position in both private and public cloud markets.

Carrenza is a provider of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) cloud services for hosting mission-critical applications and websites for customers spanning public, private and third sectors. Private sector customers include RBS, de Bijenkorf and Majestic Wine. A strong third sector presence includes household names like WWF and AgeUK. It is an OFFICIAL security certified G-Cloud provider and an expanding public sector base includes Government Digital Service (GDS), DWP and HMRC.

Alastair Mills (pictured), CEO of 6DG, commented: “This announcement ticks three major strategic boxes for Six Degrees. Firstly, it strengthens our capabilities for professional and managed services in application and web hosting for mission-critical environments. Secondly, it gives us a major presence in the public sector where Carrenza is a strong G-Cloud player. Finally, it brings public cloud integration capabilities that, especially for AWS, are increasingly part of the mix for end-user customers in an increasingly multi-cloud world.”

Dan Sutherland, CEO of Carrenza, replied: “We are delighted to be joining Six Degrees. The strategic fit is compelling and this is a logical development for both 6DG and Carrenza. Our heritage in the public sector, with complex private clouds and public cloud integration is extremely strong and we believe our team can play a vital role in the continued growth of the group in the years ahead.”
