Usage and Billing

Track Resource Utilization across Cloud and Virtualization Platforms

Traditionally, resource utility calculation for the single-tenant environment would be a straightforward job for enterprises and service providers.  However, when it comes to multi-tenant environments, it becomes a challenging task.

Cloud Assert Billing for Azure Stack offers a flexible resource consumption-based billing solution integrated within the Azure Stack portal to enable true pay-as-you-billing, invoices and payments. With Cloud Assert Billing for Azure Stack, Enterprise service administrators, Service providers and Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) partners can define multiple pricing models within Azure Stack for all available services, resource meters, plans and offers. The solution is also extensible to support billing for resources residing outside of Azure Stack (e.g., VMware, System Center / Hyper-V).
