  • 6fusion is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service Provider We hate the term “Cloud”, it’s over-hypedFocused exclusively on the Solution Provider Channel – we are 100% Channel focused. We partner with youProvide key value added services:“Federated” public cloud services allowing you to compete on scaleConsumption based “utility” metering and billingAbility to profile systems prior to migrationOptional Private Cloud resale offering for enterprise end usersComplete onboarding and sales process support6fusion partners with Data Centers, ISPs, and other MSPs to “federate” their computing resources into a Public CloudLeveraging our console, you can access the cloud to:Create and manage workloadsReport on consumptionProfile and plan migrationsAdd your own compute resources to the cloudAll workloads provide dynamic resourcing – you can use as much as you wantWe leverage a patented technology to meter and bill ONLY for what computing resources are used – the WAC
  • UC6 Customers tap 6fusion Platform API to create console access to infrastructure or integrate Control Room modules (e.g., Profiler) into third party applicationsThe UC6 Control Room is the central operation hub for cloud service requests and it provides the heartbeat information about capacity and availability of iNodes. It runs on private infrastructure owned and operated by 6fusion.UC6 Engine Room is deployed onto the customer’s Virtual Infrastructure, which carries out the task of federation. Multi-tenant infrastructure providers are viewable to anyone with iNode Network access. Enterprise customer infrastructure is viewable only by internal groups belonging to the customer operation

    4. 4. How Do You Deal with VM Sprawl? Virtualization sprawl occurs when the number of virtual machines on a network reaches a point where the administrator can no longer manage them effectively.• According to IBM, virtual images are tripling every two years, outpacing Moore’s law• 90 percent of organizations expect to adopt or substantially deploy a cloud model in the next three years.• Most larger enterprises have between five to twenty thousand virtual machines• According to Cisco’s Global Cloud Index, more than 50% of all workloads will be processed in the cloud by 2014.
