Communicate to Your Cloud Consumers

Get Value in Cloud Speed
Get instant cost visibility through automated data collection and reference cost library for your vSphere infrastructure and public clouds.
Track private and public cloud costs in a single dashboard, providing a simple-to-interpret view of cost drivers and spending efficiency. IT organizations can automatically and continuously track the cost of on-premises vSphere virtual infrastructure, as well as easily assess how much the business is spending across multiple public cloud providers and accounts.
Cloud Comparison and Planning
Automating cost comparisons on current and planned workloads helps IT organizations quickly evaluate cloud options and improve decision making. IT teams can compare public clouds to private clouds and make smarter cloud purchasing decisions. The solution also automatically estimates the impact and cost of adding new workloads to the remaining capacity, improving resource management.
Cloud Consumption Analysis and Showback
IT organizations can quickly see which business groups, applications, or services are consuming the most and least enterprise infrastructure. IT teams can also securely share cloud services allocation statements, or showback reports, with specific LOBs through role-based access to online reports. With monthly charge projections and budget tracking, the solution provides greater transparency across the business.
