Custom service catalog offerings: Amazon EC2

The cloud administrator builds on the basic Cloud Management configuration by providing additional options for the virtual machines requested through the default Amazon VM service catalog item.

The cloud administrator can configure a price structure based on hardware selections that the system uses to calculate the price of a virtual machine. At this level of customization, approvals are required and provisioning tasks must be completed manually.

Note: Ensure that the basic configuration tasks are complete before attempting to add a price structure to your virtual resources.

Pricing can be used to integrate Cloud Management with asset management model categories. The catalog price is calculated by the system as multiples of a unit price. Change the price per unit for EC2 images in the price factor record. This price is used to calculate the price for each EC2 image provisioned from a specific instance.
