6fusion was founded in 2010 as a result of a simple observation: IT should be treated as a Utility– ubiquitous, pervasive, and absolutely (price) transparent.
There was just one problem. What was the universal metric for transaction?
What is IT’s equivalent to the pound, bushel, or gallon?
We were trained to understand the ‘server’ as the logical billing unit. But the founders recognized that this wouldn’t work in the era of computing delivered to business in a similar fashion as, say, electricity.
The industry needed of a single unit of measure that could transcend politics, production, language and proprietary invention. This challenge sparked an entire IT Economics movement and lead 6fusion co-founders John Cowan and Delano Seymour to an elegantly simple yet powerful solution: the Workload Allocation Cube (kWAC).
The kWAC established the first true ‘apples-to-apples’ comparison for IT infrastructure. With 6fusion, Enterprise customers can now Buy, Operate, and Sell IT just like any other Utility. Join us in our Mission to treat IT as a Utility, and pioneer the open IT Services Market.
To have an idea and a vision for a different future is one thing. To have the guts to do something about it is quite another.
Faced with tremendous personal risk and uncertainty, I discovered this quote about Entrepreneurship and it reminded me why we had the guts to start what we did:
This is it. This is why we do it. This is why we suffer the stress and uncertainty. This is why we get out of bed every morning to earn less money than we could doing some other job. This is why we show up at a job where everyone on the outside says what you are doing cannot be done. This is why we have no quit.
If you think you share some of the same DNA as the bright and ambitious people at 6fusion, we want to talk to you about a vision for a different future.
