Cisco Open Pay

Pay for IT resources you use

Cisco Open Pay unlocks fresh value from data centers. You only pay an agreed fixed amount plus variable capacity as you use it.

With Cisco Open Pay, you can…

Accelerate growth

Plan for scale and growth without upfront cost or delays waiting for new hardware to arrive.

Respond to demand

Use on-demand capacity to immediately deliver new services to customers.

Build smart

Stop over-designing data centers and paying for servers to sit idle.

Budget Confidently

Deliver long range strategic investment plan with confidence.

How it works

Open Pay agreement

The agreement covers the entire solution, although the fixed charge is for the committed portion only. So, you get scalability with economy.

Extra capacity buffer

Buffer capacity is billed on a pre-agreed price-per-unit basis, but only if it’s used.

Usage and billing

We monitor usage daily, but only bill you quarterly.


Selected UCS, Nexus, MDS, Catalyst, and third-party storage items are eligible for Cisco Open Pay.


You have to agree to remote tracking of variable usage.
