Originally developed as a B/OSS suite for delivering Infrastructure as a service, CloudPortal Business Manager provides a powerful platform for packaging, delivering and metering a custom set of cloud services to users. As an open and extensible platform, cloud operators, and administrators can leverage the newly available SDKs to offer cloud services beyond IaaS, and seamlessly integrate with existing business and operations systems. CloudPortal Business Manager is going to help cloud builders in three main ways:
- Deliver Anything-as-a-Service from a customizable catalog of services capable of delivering IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, 3rd party cloud services and enterprise.
- Empower users with self-service access to the cloud and IT services, infrastructure and account management tools they need from an easy to use cloud services "storefront".
- Simplify cloud services management by unifying and automating services provisioning, B/OSS systems, billing and metering and user management under a single, extensible platform.
