  • Configurable event deduplication logic
    Now any dimension can be used as the filter for deduplication, enabling allowing users to define their own custom business logic for event duplication.
    Identifying duplicate events is essential to accurately tracking usage. Amberflo has provided from day-1 an idempotent metering service with data deduplication. We are further enhancing this core feature to give you more flexibility and configurability.
    For example, a business processing documents and charging for the underlying resources consumed may use the 'document-id' to ensure no one document is processed (or billed) twice. Read our documentation explaining the feature here.
  • Apply a scaling function to meter data
    In some cases, the unit (or scale) that is used for metering a resource is different from the billable unit. For example, a company may track data storage in TB internally, but look to charge customers using a per-GB rate.
    Amberflo allows users to select the new unit (scale) and apply a scaling function to the usage data to convert it to the necessary unit at billing time. Example, if the usage is tracked in TB but billed in GB, then the metered usage (in TB) would need to be multiplied by 1000 to convert the scale to GB for customer-facing billing.

  • Five steps to getting started with Amberflo
    Usage-based pricing (UBP) delivers very high levels of revenue growth and product adoption. Any company operating in the cloud can (and should) adopt a usage-based pricing model enabled by best practices and frameworks that optimize the value being provided to the customer.
    The usage-based model is the only one that makes sense in the cloud. Given the elastic nature of the underlying infrastructure, anything that gets layered on top needs to be just as flexible — and that includes pricing. Below, we will lay out five steps to get started with a usage-based pricing model at your business using Amberflo. Read the full guide here.
