Properly sizing a mainframe system involves some pretty complex calculations and decisions. How much processing power do you need over the system’s entire life expectancy? Can it grow with your business? Traditionally, you’ve had to evaluate your current requirements… calculate how your needs might change… and perhaps do some modeling or benchmarking. Once you bought the system–and reached the upper limit for upgrading it–you simply had to buy a new one.
But now you have a much better choice. We’ll provide you a system with all the capacity you need–and also substantially more. But you’ll pay for only the exact amount of capacity you use. That’s right. We’ll deliver to you a OS 2200–based ClearPath Dorado system with our metering technology–plus a significant amount of extra processing power. And that capacity is always "on" and available for your immediate use.
OS 2200 metering technology is available for the entry, mid-range and high-end ClearPath Dorado mainframes.
This paper explains our ClearPath Dorado Pay-for Use business models and especially focusing on OS 2200 metering technology. It describes how our meters work. How your usage is calculated. How you can use its innovative and unique features to manage your ClearPath Dorado system environment… and your business operating style too.
