  • Centennial Campus Welcomes Newest Partner - 6fusion

    6fusion, a company that has developed a system to take control of third party computing resources and create a single utility to meet the needs of the IT Service channel, is the latest company to become a partner on NC State University's Centennial Campus. 

     

    The company is occupying space in the Venture IV building on the research park and technology campus. 

     

    "We are delighted to have 6fusion on campus," said Dennis Kekas, associate vice chancellor of the Centennial Partnership office. "With their background in cloud computing and our research in that area, we think they are an ideal partner going forward."

     

    6fusion has developed an algorithm that radically simplifies the metering, consumption and billing of compute resources, called the Workload Allocation Cube (WAC).  The company also has developed a platform called UC6, which provides a single pane-of-glass user interface for customers to dynamically provision cloud workloads internal or external to their organization. 

     

    “We spent a considerable amount of time with the team at Centennial Campus after we completed our relocation to the Research Triangle,” said John Cowan, CEO of 6fusion.  “Centennial Campus is not only an exciting, intellectually stimulating place to locate an entrepreneurial venture – it’s also a unique venue that allows us to partner on research and development facilities in a campus atmosphere that is more than just office space.”

     

    6fusion makes iNode computing power available exclusively through IT service providers, independent software vendors and managed service providers. They use iNodes to build and launch 'cloud' based services to their user communities and customers worldwide. The company bridges the gap between supply and demand of utility computing resources with the company's software technology called UC6. UC6 is a single console that handles all of the metering and billing of the "infrastructure" and deployment and control of customer "applications."

     

    In addition to the corporate relocation, 6fusion has also partnered with NC State’s Institute for Next Generation IT Systems (ITng) to develop collaborative research initiatives. ITng is also located on Centennial Campus. 

     

    “ITng is a perfect fit for 6fusion’s long term R&D program,” said 6fusion co-founder and CTO Delano Seymour.
