The worst cloud billing pitfall you can make is clearly not understanding what your customers are using and therefore not billing correctly. Why offer a service after all if you cannot monetize it properly?
Billing keeps your cloud business ticking, yet the process for it is often one of the last things to be considered when building out a new cloud service. We believe there are five cloud billing pitfalls all telcos and cloud service providers should avoid.
AWS is the fastest-growing enterprise technology company in history, according to Deutsche Bank analyst predictions. Its 2017 valuation put AWS at $160 billion, on 2017 revenues of $16 billion.
Service providers delivering cloud require a user-friendly solution to load balancing across their servers. At Flexiant, we continually aim to deliver against our service providers’ requirements, and so today we launch a fully integrated, multi-tenant Load Balancer as a Service.
Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator load balancers are deployed in redundant groups. These in turn can route traffic across backend servers according to various algorithms, such as round robin, or whichever server has the least number of connections on it.
There is very little point offering cloud services if you do not have an accurate way to meter and bill against usage. There is also very little point selecting a cloud orchestration tool that doesn’t incorporate flexible billing so that you can bill based on your business and existing systems.
