The Windows Azure platform offers significant opportunities for ISVs to gain first-mover advantage in new markets,” said Prashant Ketkar, director, product marketing for Windows Azure. “ Microsoft is working closely with technology partners — such as Metanga in the area of billing — to ensure that our ISV customers can effectively monetize their Windows Azure offerings.”

We are excited to be working with Microsoft to enable ISVs to build native Azure cloud applications,” said Mark Dudman, general manager of Metanga. “Throughout our deployment collaboration on Azure, Microsoft’s support of Metanga has been outstanding. In our position as a foundational Azure building block, we look forward to working with the Microsoft field sales team in accelerating Windows Azure platform adoption.”

MetraTech claims its newly released Metanga service can perform a range of functions including guiding users by interactively leading customers through best practices and billing processes.
