Infrastructure Metering

The UC6 Platform is  designed to help organizations deliver IT Economics 2.0 outcomes – improved cost transparency and allocation, infrastructure optimization, and cloud migration cost analysis.  Combining the Workload Allocation Cube – the standardized unit of measurement for quantifying IT Infrastructure – with an open and highly flexible architecture, the UC6 Platform helps organizations get the most out of their IT infrastructure – whether internal or cloud based. Using one interface, 6fusion users can meter, analyze, and optimize IT infrastructure usage inside and outside their organization.
