Frequently Asked Questions

What is a cloud billing platform?

A cloud billing platform is one that adds the required monetisation layers to a cloud service built on open source or commercial technologies. A cloud billing platform should have capabilities of automated IaaS resource provisioning, subscription record creation, rating and mediation, invoice generation, and payment capture mechanisms.

How does subscription billing work for cloud?

Cloud is largely a subscription-based service. Most cloud resources are available in a pay-as-you-use model. Hence, subscription billing for clouds works by adding a monetary layer on top of any hardware or virtual resource pool that you wish to monetise.

What all resources can be billed using apiculus?

Our CloudStack billing management platform, apiculus, can bill anything as a service. All IaaS resources orchestrated by Apache CloudStack like virtual machines, IP addresses, virtual routers and disks can be billed using apiculus.

Is it possible to customise invoice templates to comply with different tax laws?

Yes. Invoices generated on apiculus are customised to meet organisational and national compliance requirements around display of financial and tax information.

Is it possible to run billing & invoicing in 2 different currencies?

No. There can be multiple currencies configured on the system for information display to the subscribers, but billing will happen only in the primary currency.

Is it possible to integrate apiculus with an existing billing software or accounting software?

Yes. The apiculus CloudStack billing platform can send rated data feeds to any other billing system in the .csv or .xml formats, or directly via API.
