It is a flexible solution that covers various scenarios such as:
PLAN CREDITS – similar to Azure. Users can have an overall credit of say x Amount and they are free to use any resource for that x amount. Excess usage automatically billed based on utilization.
BUNDLED OFFERS – similar to popular service provider offerings. Users buy a bundle of resources in advance, like x CPU, y DB Size, z Websites. Only usage that exceeds these included unit credits will be invoiced.
PURE USAGE BASED – there will be no included credits at the plan level or at resource level. All the usage will be invoiced based on the metered resource values.
“I’m very impressed with the work CLOUD ASSERT has done for usage and billing.
The solution helped us automate end to end billing scenarios very quickly, from user sign-up to invoicing.
I'm especially excited about offering my customers the ability to view their usage on-the-go, download historical usage and even get notified according to their own usage preferences. It’s been a worthy investment for us.”
