San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 5, 2009
6fusion USA, Inc. and GNi announced today that they have partnered to co-deliver utility computing infrastructure nodes around the world.
GNi, a leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) firm based in San Jose, California, was selected as one of the first global 6fusion partners because of their agility and creativity as a solutions provider. "It takes vision and foresight to embrace the type of change our company is bringing to the world of on demand computing. GNi is the type of service provider that will thrive in the new era of computing," said 6fusion Managing Director John Cowan. "6fusion is the type of company that represents the new generation of on demand computing. We are thrilled by the opportunity for GNi to play an important role in a game-changing model," said GNi CEO Philip Bouchard.
GNi will provision and manage a highly scalable computing and storage infrastructure, which will be housed in data centers in Europe, the U.S. and APAC regions. "6fusion has recognized the glaring need for robust infrastructure, meaningful SLAs and IT compliance standardization within the 'cloud' computing space," said Cowan. "Our partnership with GNi will ensure that the same level of service will be delivered regardless of geographic location," he added.
6fusion's software, called UC6, converts the raw server and storage hardware into a pure play utility computing offering. "Our software takes control of the data center assets, effectively federating the infrastructure on our expanding worldwide grid," said 6fusion Director of Technology Delano Seymour. "6fusion's utility computing solution makes a lot of sense because customers of all shapes and sizes can take direct advantage of advanced computing systems without the traditional cost barrier," said Bouchard. "Because of this, we anticipate much greater market reach," he added.
End user customers and channel partners working with GNi and 6fusion can run any type of application that operates on x86 architecture and they pay only for the computing power they consume. The utility concept is delivered using the Workload Allocation Cube (WAC), a patent-pending algorithm and methodology released by 6fusion in October. "The Workload Allocation Cube algorithm drastically simplifies complex computing. Understanding your bill from 6fusion is as simple as understanding your bill from your electric power utility," said Seymour.
