- Data-outage billing
Several firmware releases ago, the Pod began to keep a rolling track of total consumption data points and storing it every hour. It can store up to 1 week’s worth of hourly values but even if the pod is offline longer than that, the total usage is still captured (just not with hourly granularity).
This Apollo cloud release processes and integrates this rolling usage value into existing billing architecture, making billing resilient to patchy data and also making it possible to bill for days past that could not be billed for the reasons mentioned above. All in all, this feature eliminates lost consumption data and enables our customers to recover lost revenue.
