During the Denver 2019 Summit the SIG Public Cloud identified that the current situation around public cloud billing is somewhat fragmented. In general, doing billing have from the gecko been really hard with OpenStack, especially for public clouds.
Since the last Summit some small steps have been taken to get an initiative going to address this . Since then, focus have been around metrics that need to be collected and ways of collect those metrics. Our general feeling is that a lot of operators share the same pain when it comes to billing, and it would be good if we could come together in a joint effort and come up with a viable solution that meets all requirements that are needed for this to work in a production environment, including resiliency, scaling, HA etc.
