How approval cycle and chargeback work in Microsoft private cloud? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have just started working on MS private cloud and need some clarification on the request approval cycle and charge-back concepts in private cloud.Would like to know when Private cloud is implemented with Server 2012 and SC 2012 SP1, what will be available out of box for approval cycle and chargeback? In case if any extra effort is required, what is the other customization\integration required to achieve the above.

  • What you are looking for, is the "Cloud Service Process Pack".

    this will give you an out of the box solution that you can use to deliver IaaS with chargeback.

    The components required for this is SCVMM, SCOM, Orchestrator and SCSM. 

    In the R2 release (currently in preview) you get IaaS and also chargeback with Windows Azure Pack, SCVMM and Orchestrator. But this is suited more for service providers than the enterprise IT.

  • Thanks a lot Kristian. I have started working on the lab.

    Meanwhile would like to get your suggestion on what components (scvvm,scsm,orhcestrator,app controller) need to be clustered to ensure self-service feature/process in cloud is always on.

  • At least as a start, each SC component should be running in a VM in a Hyper-V cluster.

    Depending on the workload, each component have different approaches to high availability.

  • Hi Kristian,

    My lab is running with SCSM self-service portal and automation is working as expected through orchestrator.


    Now im stucked up in generating pricesheet(created with CSPP) for the VM's created through self-service portal.

    Is it for the reason that VM's are getting created on the stanalone Hyper-V machine? or something else i need to look into?
