6fusion Joins VCE Technology Alliance Partner Program and Achieves Vblock Ready Certification

6fusion, the company standardizing the economic measurement of IT infrastructure and cloud services, today announced that their UC6 Platform has achieved Vblock Ready certification through the VCE Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program. Vblock Ready certification means that Enterprise IT users can now confidently use 6fusion’s UC6 Platform on VCE converged infrastructure to enable a utility approach to IT - driving improved cost transparency, better forecasting and benchmarking capabilities, and ultimately create economic transparency in IT.

6fusion delivers on the promise of converged infrastructure by delivering true economic transparency based upon a patented, single unit of measure known as the Workload Allocation Cube (WAC). Analogous to the kilowatt, the WAC provides an economic baseline of IT infrastructure regardless of the underlying cloud or virtualization technology. With the WAC as the basis for comparisons, the IT investment decision making process is de-politicized with unbiased “apples-to-apples” benchmarking, transforming internal business planning, creating optimization, and ultimately helping businesses improve how they run their IT.

“VCE is pleased to welcome 6fusion as a Technology Alliance Partner for VCE Vblock Systems,” said DJ Long, senior director, Technology Alliances, VCE. “As a VCE TAP partner, 6fusion can now integrate its products with Vblock Systems, delivering transformative data center solutions for mutual customers that enable the agility, simplicity and improved economics of converged infrastructure with 6fusion’s expertise in standardized utility metering.”

“Economic transparency means giving Enterprise IT a decision support framework that transcends infrastructure deployment models,” said John Cowan, CEO and Co-Founder of 6fusion. “The industry standard for consumption measurement together with a true market leader in converged infrastructure is a powerful combination that means 6fusion and VCE can now deliver unprecedented value to customers.”
