A special product on the marketplace is available for purchase that automatically provision on OpenStack a new user with a dedicated project.
To achieve this, administrator credentials of an OpenStack cloud is necessary to be able to dynamically create new users and projects.
Both prepaid and pay-as-you-go pricing models are supported.
Switching between different pricing models on an active subscription is not yet supported.
Prepaid pricing model
In prepaid plans, end-users are asked for how many CPU cores, GB of memory, GB of disk space and IP addresses want to buy. In this case, project quotas are automatically setup to ensure that the end-user will not request too many resources.
Pay-as-you-go pricing model
In pay-as-you-go plans, end-users are billed at the end of the billing period by using the automatically gathered metrics for each of the billed resources (CPU cores, GB of memory, GB of disk space, IP addresses).
An example OpenStack VDC product is available on our demo marketplace.
