Feature Request - Backup Billing Report

Veeam Logoby Ryan_Quest » Tue May 16, 2017 5:15 am

We would like to see a spot in the Backup Billing report to be able to a minimum number to bill for. This would be particularly useful for Cloud Connect customers. So instead of just calculating the storage cost based on usage, there's a base minimum storage cost + any overages beyond that number.

Ex...Tenant A has a 20TB SLA, but they are only using 12TB currently. We want to be able to get the report for the 20TB minimum number, or at least a field that says "extra cost to reach minimum" (kinda like your rental report for SP's).

Also, in addition to the minimum storage field, a place to enter a separate cost for overage amounts.

Ex... So if that same 20TB tenant, ends up using 22TB so they have a 2TB overage, we want to be able show the 20TB at whatever the base costs + an additional cost for overage storage at a different rate. So maybe something like $ per TB up to xxTB. Then $ per TB after xxTB.

Hello Ryan,

Could you clarify the Ex.1, please?
Am I correct that you want to charge either for Quota or for Used Space, depending what is bigger?

Thank you!

Ryan want's to have a flat fee for the storage (either used or not), kind of allocation model for billing. If you take a look at VAC, there is an option to include X number of storage for "free" and then charge extra when user exceeds the quota.
