Aria Systems: Cloud Billing And Management With VMware Cloud Director
Aria Systems, a San Mateo, Calif.-based provider of cloud billing and subscription management solutions, recently unveiled its Aria Cloud Revenue Adapter for vCloud Director. Designed for service providers offering cloud services to end users, the new product integrates with VMware's next-generation VMware Cloud Director virtualization platform to automate service activation, usage tracking, billing and collections. This provides usage information, including the number of virtualized instances, memory used, storage used, network bandwidth used and CPUs, so that service providers can manage those resources with pay-as-you-go billing for their end customers according to their own pricing, packaging and business rules.
