Broadcloud datacenter in London joins the 6fusion iNode Network
BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 6fusion, a leading provider of utility-metered public, private and hybrid cloud platform and services, in conjunction with Broadcloud, a leading provider of managed hosting, private IT cloud solutions, and managed security solutions, today announced the availability of 6fusion’s first European iNode, located in London, UK and powered by Broadcloud.
This new point of presence represents Broadcloud’s second 6fusion iNode and demonstrates a significant expansion of the 6fusion Broadcloud partnership, following the announcement in June of Broadcloud’s Las Vegas, NV datacenter joining the iNode Network. This new European iNode expands the existing 6fusion public cloud consisting of federated datacenters located in Canada, the United States, and Singapore. The European location increases the choice that 6fusion users have when selecting datacenter locations in which to deploy cloud workloads.

“Broadcloud is excited to expand our partnership with 6fusion to our premiere data center facility in the UK.” said Brent Eubanks – EVP Strategic Services at Broadcloud. “6fusion’s simple and unique approach to the infrastructure-as-a-service model and WAC metering metric gives us the ability to efficiently deliver on the ever increasing demand for Broadcloud private IT cloud solutions and services from across the global 6fusion ecosystem.”
The 6fusion iNode Network is an integrated public cloud of third-party cloud providers that deliver public and private cloud resources in an on demand, pay-per-use model. In addition to aggregating data centers and cloud providers, 6fusion massively simplifies usage of the cloud with one user interface and unified service levels, contracts, and billing. A true utility, all resources consumed in the iNode Network are measured by 6fusion’s metering algorithm, the Workload Allocation Cube (WAC), creating a commercial standard to quantify supply and demand for compute resources.
“The European market is important to 6fusion, our partners, and our customers, so having an iNode available in the region is critical for data residency, compliance, and latency reasons,” said Rob Bissett, VP of Product Management & Marketing for 6fusion “We are very pleased to build on the success of the Broadcloud Las Vegas iNode and know our customers in Europe will value the top notch facilities and services Broadcloud brings to the 6fusion iNode Network.”
