About 6fusion

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 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, and Infrastructure 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.

6fusion and Winthrop Launch New Program to Switch IT Infrastructure to Pay-as-You-Go Consumption

Apr 16, 2018

6fusion and Winthrop Resources Corporation recently announced the launch of a program that enables companies to quickly switch their IT investments to pay-as-you-go consumption. The service is aimed at companies that are seeking to reap cloud computing's financial benefits and still retain the control and flexibility of on-premise infrastructure. The new program enables customers to consume any combination of new and old IT infrastructure on a pay-as-you-go basis by installing 6fusion's vendor-agnostic metering software in their data centre. Winthrop leverages 6fusion’s capability to standardize and meter IT capacity to chart usage for the new capital financing arrangement. Furthermore, it empowers companies to immediately switch both current as well as new infrastructure investments to cloud-like billing. The program is completely based on consumption, which means there are no monthly minimums or charges for unused capacity. Billing is done via a SaaS website that gives customers real-time visibility into their consumption, thus doing away with the need for complex billing reviews or audits. Besides that, the platform can also be integrated with leading IT financial software to streamline chargebacks across the enterprise. In addition to that, the program enables companies to organize their spending and manage cash flow based on technology usage instead of bulk spend. Organizations will be able to benefit from payment flexibility that is designed based on cloud-based services while still retaining their infrastructure on-premise and maintaining legacy investments. John Cowan, CEO, 6fusion, “Paying for IT infrastructure according to its capacity is like paying for electricity by the size of your house. Nobody does that. Traditional IT procurement works this way, but it’s only a matter of time before all IT infrastructure is truly pay-as-you-go. Our program, combined with the capital financing capabilities of Winthrop delivers an end-to-end solution to ever-changing technology needs for businesses.” Tags
