VMware vCenter Chargeback Manager enables cost measurement, analysis and reporting of virtual machines. It provides the ability to map IT costs to business units, cost centers or external customers - enabling a better understanding of how much resources cost and what can be done to optimise resource utilisation.

  • Report Infrastructure Costs Accurately: Provides comparison of cost models and resource usage for specified periods of time, includes customisable report templates enabling reports to contain unique elements to fit the company brand standards, allows organisations to gain visibility into datacenter costs, which makes it easier to drive and prioritise efficiency efforts.
