Ciracom enhances its cloud infrastructure through 6fusion’s UC6 Cloud Management Platform to offer Infrastructure-as-a-Service
ALEXANDRIA, VA – September 29, 2011 – Ciracom, Inc., an Alexandria, VA based provider of customized IT solutions in the cloud, and 6fusion, a provider of utility-metered public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructure management software and services, today announced a partnership to offer a series of new cloud infrastructure-based business solutions.
“Our customers are seeking flexible enterprise solutions for their application hosting. Working in partnership with 6fusion allows us to meet and continually scale that demand – whether that be for a shared public, hybrid, or private cloud deployment – Ciracom can deliver, and in many instances, within one business day,” says Amy Rutt, Chief Executive Officer of Ciracom, Inc.
In partnership with 6fusion, Ciracom can now offer its customers precise metering and reporting, security by design, and ultimate management and workload controls from multiple tier 3 and tier 4 data centers. 6fusion’s unique metering algorithm, the Workload Allocation Cube (WAC), standardizes the measurement of resource consumption in the cloud. Its UC6 Cloud Management Platform federates private data center and third party cloud operators, providing a single console to allow IT organizations of all types to meter, manage and optimize hybrid cloud infrastructures.
“With 6fusion, Ciracom’s users can choose the data center that houses their workloads, overcoming many of the concerns about using the cloud – which is especially important for its clients within the federal government,” said Rob Bissett, VP of Product Management for 6fusion. “UC6 is also a ‘one stop shop’ platform that is vendor agnostic, allowing it to run on and manage multiple hypervisors and hardware platforms. This means there is no limit to what types of applications can be deployed.”
