Scope Product Utility Environment

In partnership with Dell Technologies we will work with you to define capacity requirements, growth expectations, SLAs, and reporting requirements.

                                                                              Develop Rate Structure

After the required solutions have been identified, we will develop a rate structure with consistent pricing.


Monitor Usage

Automated tools record the actual consumption levels, and this data will b provided to you on a regular basis for you to review so you can optimize your deployed capacity.


Once you have approved the usage data, we will provide an invoice reflecting actual usage each month.

Choose Your Solution

Determine the hardware, software, and services that met your needs.

Meter Usage

Each payment you make is comprised of a fixed Committed Capacity amount plus a variable Buffer Capacity amount.

Realize Savings

Drive lower usage charges by selecting higher levels of committed capacity and longer usage periods and trigger lower usage rates as workloads increase beyond the initial committed capacity

Select Your Deployed Capacity

We work with you to establish the "Committed Capacity" you currently need and the "Buffer Capacity" you will require in the future. All technology is installed and available to you on day one.

Buffer Capacity Usage

Usage is measured at a component level on a regular basis using automated tools installed with your equipment.
