HP Moves to the Cloud with Flexible Pricing Models

Someone once said that the best indication of character is the friends you have; well we here at Zuora are pretty excited about what having HP as a friend says about us. HP is one of the biggest players in the technology industry, with products and services that impact customers of all stripes. To provide the billing solution to their Cloud offering is a huge honor.
On Thursday, HP Cloud Services completed a major milestone in their product life cycle. After going into production last year with customers via "private beta by invitation", on Thursday these customers moved to “public beta.”
HP Cloud Services is billed monthly and is usage-based. You pay $.04 per hour for 1 GB of RAM and 30GB of local disk space and up to $1.28 per hour for 32 GB of RAM and 960 GB of local space. With HP Cloud Object Storage Pricing, you pay for the amount of storage you use each month (at $.12 for the first 0-50 TB and $.10 for the 950TB). Check out more of the pricing tiers here.
With Zuora, HP Cloud Services can offer all of these different pricing to their customers with a metering, pricing and billing platform that matches the business model of cloud computing with subscription and pay-as-you-go pricing models. Simply put, if you’re building shared resources in HP’s Cloud, now you’ve got the convenience and flexibility of Zuora for your billing. Pretty spiffy.
Congratulations to our friends at HP Cloud Services!
