6fusion Launches The UC6 Meter for Amazon; Enables Cost Comparison of AWS Against Other Providers

6fusion today released  UC6 Meter for Amazon to open beta enabling customers to quantify and compare resource utilization and costs in Amazon Web Services (AWS) to any other public and private IT infrastructure.

The ability to normalize metering for Amazon is the basis for Amazon users to create an apples-to-apples comparison with other infrastructure suppliers for the first time. 6fusion allows all suppliers to compete openly on a clear price-to-value ratio.
– Rob Bissett, SVP Product Management, 6fusion.

Some of the key features of the UC6 Meter for Amazon are:

  • It  leverages 6fusion’s Workload Allocation Cube (WAC) as a normalizing metric.
  • It is built on 6fusion’s Open Market Framework and  utilizes the flexible architecture designed to separate the infrastructure layer from 6fusion’s metering and orchestration capabilities.
  • It collects usage data from the AWS API through a customer’s account and translates that usage data into the equivalent WAC units for analysis in the 6fusion Platform.
  • Customers can  view AWS Elastic Compute Cloud and Elastic Block Service usage in the same unit of measure they use to track their other infrastructure usage, thereby simplifying the process of comparing AWS costs and usage to other internal and external options.
  • Customers can quickly deploy 6fusion’s library of pre-built adapters for common infrastructure platforms or build their own adapters using 6fusion’s open API.
  • It  enables organizations to include AWS usage in their internal cost visibility and allocation methodologies and better manage their overall IT infrastructure investments.
