Almost all major ITO's providers - From SUN, HP, IBM, EDS etc. has offerings 
that in some shape or other uses a "Utility model" based upon some sort of 
financial model based upon actual CPU/IO etc. usage - It is a major area now 
and provides one of the corner stones in the movement towards "Public Utility 

So it is very relevant as an area for general improvement and the "historical" 
models are not really good enough, for further information take a look a 
products as MicroMeasure etc.
