6fusion and Cloud Services Depot Partner to Simplify SMB Cloud Adoption


Raleigh, NC - September 19, 2011 -- 6fusion, a provider of utility-metered public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructure management software and services, and Cloud Services Depot, a channel-focused provider of cloud-based software and services solutions, today announced a partnership designed to help resellers and managed service providers deliver high value cloud services to small and medium sized businesses (SMB).

“Adding cloud services to their portfolios is top priority for most resellers and service providers - especially those targeting SMBs,” said Rob Bissett, VP of Product Management for 6fusion. “This new partnership is designed to give them the tools, services, and support they need to accelerate their movement to the cloud.”

With the new offering, resellers and service providers will gain access to 6fusion’s leading edge utility metered Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings and Cloud Service Depot’s portfolio of cloud integration, network operations center (NOC) and Help Desk Services.

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.

Cloud Services Depot provides resellers with the ability to support their customers 24x7 using their existing PSA and RMM software. Resellers can easily direct end-user calls, email and service tickets to the Help Desk located in Los Angeles, California for desktop support. On premise or cloud based servers can be fully managed by the NOC Services team to give resellers of any size the resources necessary to compete with nationwide providers.

“With the combined breadth of our technical, business, and services offerings 6fusion and Cloud Service Depot can help virtually any reseller or service provider begin offering cloud services simply and easily, with little (to no) up front investment or technical disruption to their team” says Frank Hughes, CEO of Cloud Services Depot.
