Use a metered system for flexibility and scalability
Pay for technology based on how much you consume; track the metrics important to you.
Use a technology-metered approach to pay for assets as you use them, just like you do for utilities such as water and electricity.
- Pay only for the technology you consume.
- Enjoy the flexibility, scalability and pay-as-you-go benefits of cloud technology.
- Keep your equipment on-premises, which can be crucial to meeting your security, control and compliance needs.
- Apply to any components or systems that are able to be metered. Common projects include: data center (converged, hyperconverged, storage and servers), imaging equipment and pharmacy equipment.
Why choose a consumption solution?
Use chargeback reporting
Gain a view of usage and cost, right down to the VM level.
Optimize your data center
Workload data analysis allows architects to right size your center's configuration.
Have capacity when you need it
The usage dashboard provides visbility and allows for flexibility, avoiding capacity limitations.
Align usage and spend
Align spend with technology usage and scale per your business needs.
How is my bill measured?
Accurately compare, measure and track with kWAC.
The WAC (Workload Allocation Cube) aggregates the six underlying utilization metrics required to operate any software application. Total computing capacity is measured in kWACs (1000 WACs-1kWAC) per hour.
