CoreOS is an open-source lightweight operating system.
Complex business model. Its three core products Tectonic, Quay Enterprise and Container Linux have varying levels of free access depending on usage. Its Container Linux product also has the need to create customized pricing for individual enterprise customers.
Billforward’s usage based billing features have allowed CoreOS to easily continue to experiment and make adjustments with varying free and paid-for pricing models. It also gives them the ability to move users from free to paid access via a number of different triggers, such as users, nodes, or data.
The enterprise billing and invoicing features allow CoreOS’s sales team to create tailored packages in real time for customers over the phone, working within pre-defined discount parameters. The invoice design and payment request feature means that all sales invoices are configured exactly as CoreOS wants them.
By using a highly automated and scalable platform like Billforward, CoreOS is not using valuable devops resources to build and maintain a billing platform rather than a product.
