New release improves partners ability to manage and scale in the cloud
LONDON, Jan. 23 — 6fusion, a provider of utility-metered public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructure management software and services, today announced the release of its next generation UC6 Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) federation platform.
The company is previewing the technology at this week's Cloud Expo Europe with general availability coming on February 1.
The new version features a completely redesigned Web user interface, along with an updated underlying technology layer. Key new features include:
6fusion's unique metering algorithm, the Workload Allocation Cube (WAC), standardizes the measurement of storage, compute and network which allows its customers and partners to quantify supply and demand for resources. The UC6 Cloud Management Platform federates private datacenter and third party cloud operators, providing a single console to allow IT organizations of all types to access, meter, manage and optimize hybrid cloud infrastructures.
"6fusion's latest release makes big strides toward our goal of removing the complexity behind cloud infrastructure as a barrier for everyday commercial use. We chose to launch the new release at Cloud Expo Europe to celebrate the global vision 6fusion has to produce the only true open utility-metered cloud," stated 6fusion co-founder and CEO John Cowan.
In the upcoming weeks, 6fusion will hold a series of educational webinars on topics such as "Cloud Enabling Your Business forProfit and Scale" and "New Data Center Auditing Standards & Utility Based Cloud Computing." For more information on the webinars, visit http://bit.ly/wfuejH.

6fusion provides an end-to-end cloud management platform that enables global workload distribution by turning the public and private cloud into a pay-per-use billable utility. The unique metering algorithm, Workload Allocation Cube (WAC), creates a commercial standard to quantify supply and demand for compute resources. For IT service providers, enterprises and independent software vendors, andInfrastructure Owners/Operators, 6fusion simplifies and streamlines Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) via a single console that provides valuable insight into consumption, performance benchmarking and cost allocation without vendor lock-in.
