Hivelocity, a leading cloud IaaS and bare metal provider, has acquired Heficed, a UK-based network infrastructure solutions and cloud provider. The company says that this acquisition will expand Hivelocity’s global footprint with additional data center locations in Brazil, South Africa, Nigeria — extending its reach to 6 continents.
The acquisition of Heficed is an excellent opportunity for Hivelocity’s current and future clients, according to CEO and Co-Founder Mike Architetto. With the addition of nine data center facilities and VPS hosting options, Hivelocity says it will provide customers with a more robust infrastructure solution.
“This acquisition represents a fantastic opportunity for our clients, old and new,” stated Mike Architetto, the CEO and co-founder of Hivelocity.
Steve Eschweiler, COO and co-founder of Hivelocity, echoed Archietto’s enthusiasm. “Heficed is a great company with great people. Hivelocity’s acquisition strengthens our team and furthers our goal of building the most geo-diverse bare metal cloud in the industry.”
Hivelocity was founded in 2002 and has become a mainstay in the dedicated server hosting industry over its 20-year lifespan. With over 40 international locations across 29 global markets, Hivelocity says it can help customers reach 80% of the world’s internet population in under 25 milliseconds.
Hivelocity was also in the news last year for collaborating with cloud storage provider Wasabi Technologies. By combining Hivelocity’s bare metal compute services with GPU processors and Wasabi’s object storage, the two companies’ goal was to provide an alternative to hyperscale cloud service providers.
