ACloud is a SaaS solution for smart metering, in which Aidon is responsible for the central system hosting. The DSO doesn’t need to invest in servers and IT connectivity required for running the AMM system, nor allocate resources for system operation and maintenance. The fixed monthly fee for the service makes the costs predictable. In the ACloud solution, each customer has its own, secure operating environment, and access to it via the user friendly web based user interface. Aidon provides the customers with system performance reports, and takes care of system maintenance and data backups on the customer’s behalf.
