653QT Parallels Business Automation: Operational Foundation for the Cloud
Most widely known for its virtual Windows environment for the Macintosh and its server virtualization offerings, Swiss-based Parallels is also a leading provider of cloud enablement software for major Cloud Computing hosting companies focused on the SMB market in Europe and North America. (See Note 1 for company details and contact information.) Billing is a fundamental element of Cloud operations, and Parallels markets its billing software, Parallels Business Automation, separately from its hosting/ Virtualization service delivery platform Parallels Virtuozzo Containers. However, together, these offerings form a functionally rich foundation and many hosting companies, including several European telcos, use both.
