Warwickshire-based information services company Six Degrees Group (6DG) has acquired application hosting provider Insite.

Insite was established in 1994 and operates an aligned data centre in Kent where it hosts private cloud infrastructure. Its clients include fashion brand Joules, Countrywide Farmers and Tarmac Building Products.


The deal follows 6DG’s purchase of London-based cloud services provider Carrenza last month. In the past year, 6DG has also acquired cybersecurity firm Capital Support Group and West Bromwich-based consultancy C24.

Alastair Mills, CEO of 6DG, commented: “This announcement is a continuation of our stated strategic goal to enhance our capabilities in mission-critical application hosting, with a secure and compliant wrap, for business and government customers. It also provides Microsoft Azure expertise in the public cloud for both IaaS and PaaS, as well as a strong ISV partner channel.”

James Barden, MD of Insite, replied: “The Insite team is excited about the opportunity this combination presents. The technical capabilities of both businesses are highly complementary and our approach to the way we work with customers is a very close fit. We are looking forward to introducing new capabilities from Six Degrees in addition to the expertise in mission-critical hosting we have been delivering to our customers for many years.”
