Lessons learned from public cloud billing

Using OpenStack for a public cloud has a range of challenges, and one of hardest parts is often billing. This is an area deployers may run into some frustrating and unexpected problems.

  • Deployers expect a good billing system to inergrate with their existing ERP system, but those integrations likely need custom features and flexibility.
  • They need to be ready to handle bugs in the telemetry chain (service bugs, notification bugs, ceilometer bugs), and make sure their billing isn't missing information because of it.
  • Their solution needs to be able to handle at least 1000+ customers and 50+ metrics/products.

In this session, we will share the first-hand experience about running billing on Catalyst Cloud, which is a public cloud based in New Zealand.

Attendees could get some best practices about how to do billing in public cloud based on OpenStack.
