The utility business model is shaped by a number of characteristics that are typical in public services: users consider the service a necessity, high reliability of service is critical,the ability to fully utilize capacity is limited,and services are scalable and benefit from economies of scale. The paper discusses various business models of utility services and also provides a comparison of metered and subscription model of utility computing. A very good article written as part of IBM system journal's special issue on Utility computing.
