6fusion Announces the General Availability of its Cloud Computing Platform UC6 Version 3.0

New release provides an end-to-end cloud management platform for external, internal and hybrid clouds in a single console powered by the Workload Allocation Cube

DURHAM, N.C., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- 6fusion, the leading provider of utility billed Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) today announced the general availability of its latest cloud computing platform UC6 Version 3.0. The new release builds on the company's core utility metering technology and includes a multi-tenant cloud management console, self-service workload creation and management and improved features to help customers orchestrate workload migration to the cloud.

Leveraging 6fusion's unique metering algorithm -- the Workload Allocation Cube (WAC) -- the UC6 platform turns the cloud into a billable utility. Users can meter cloud resource usage and either cost allocate or bill based on actual computing resource consumption. Paying for Infrastructure as a Service using the WAC is like paying for electricity by the kilowatt, ensuring customers are only charged for what they actually use and providing improved transparency into cost and resource allocation. "With the release of UC6 Version 3.0, service providers and enterprises now have the tools necessary to turn the cloud into a truly utility-based model, regardless of whether they are using external, internal or hybrid cloud services," said 6fusion CEO John Cowan.

6fusion's UC6 Version 3.0 provides an end-to-end cloud management platform for internal, external and hybrid clouds. "UC6 3.0 creates a single pane of glass through which enterprise customers, service providers and data center operators can provision and manage compute resources on a global basis," explained Rob Bissett, 6fusion's VP of Product Management. Through the UC6 user interface, customers can instantly deploy new cloud workloads to their own private infrastructure or infrastructure that belongs to multi-tenant service providers anywhere in the world.

Another key feature is the Profiler module. Initially released as a stand-alone tool in 2009, Profiler comes fully integrated with UC6 3.0. "Profiler is a critical tool for our business because it unlocks valuable insight into the cost performance of an application, the number one barrier to cloud-based adoption," said Greg Onoprijenko, Managing Director of Sales for e-ternity Business Continuity Consultants. "Our customers depend on Profiler to help determine and prioritize their cloud migration strategies."

UC6 3.0 can be deployed to create multi-tenant IaaS or within the private confines of an Enterprise data center. "We believe the future of the IaaS business rests with the capability to seamlessly bridge the business requirements of Enterprise customers with the technical capabilities of service providers," said Cowan. Phil Santoni, CEO of Net Direct Systems, agrees. "We chose to partner with 6fusion because they built a platform that addresses many of the challenges facing cloud adoption within the Enterprise market," said Santoni. "Net Direct System's cloud service strategy is based on 6fusion's ability to not just meter and bill compute resources, but also safely and securely permit the customer to outsource workloads on-demand to external data centers."

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
