Managing billing and customer life cycle in OpenStack with Red Hat and Talligent

  • September 23, 2014
  • Webinar

You need visibility into key metrics to maintain high operational efficiency, and billing and reporting flexibility to keep up with ever-changing customer requirements and market conditions. OpenStack has limited native capabilities for financial planning, utilization reporting, and self-service.

IT departments are adopting the OpenStack® cloud platform in response to demands for public cloud-like service models. However, an enterprise-ready cloud on OpenStack requires business processes and controls for efficient planning and management of resources.  

OpenBook by Talligent provides the visibility and automation to deploy OpenStack as a robust, multi-tenant cloud platform, bounded by SLAs and billing/showback controls. OpenBook provides complete customer life cycle functionality from onboarding and self-service, tracking tenant usage, applying rates, and sending bills or showback reports.

Join this webinar to learn about:

  • Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® OpenStack Platform
  • Automated customer onboarding and on-demand self-service
  • Billing and showback to drive desired behavior of cloud tenants
  • Reporting of key performance metrics to drive management decisions and planning

As organizations make the move to OpenStack, Talligent and Red Hat will be trusted partners for enterprise OpenStack solutions.
