QuantaStor Cloud Edition is a special edition for Managed Hosting and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) which supports the pay-as-you-go license model. It comes with a special license service which is deployed on-premises with the CSP so that they can fully automate the deployment and licensing of new QuantaStor physical and virtual storage appliance instances. The license service then reports back to OS NEXUS periodically to facilitate charge-back accounting. CSPs utilize their own hardware to deploy QuantaStor Cloud Edition in their data-centers as per the QuantaStor HCL guidelines.
