You can view the details of all the virtual machines that are running in your private cloud environment such as the total monthly cost and charge information and also the number of CPUs, CPU and RAM configured and reserved size, the vCenter Server information, size and cost of storage, virtual machine backup cost.

vRealize Business for Cloud displays the virtual machine details in a grid or in a vCenter Server folder.

Note

The cost values are displayed as zero in the beginning of the month as there is no utilization on which cost can be computed.

Show VMs in vCenter Server folder structure

Displays the virtual machines according to folder structure of vCenter Server where all the ESXi hosts are listed.

Along with total monthly cost, vRealize Business for Cloud displays the details of the virtual machines, vCenter Server alias, and the name of the data center to which the virtual machine belongs. vRealize Business for Cloud considers the cost of each vSphere Data Protection (VDP) virtual machine that is used for backup service and the cost is uniformly distributed among other virtual machines that reside in the same vCenter Server. Using the Deleted column, both Business Management Administrator and Business Management Controller can identify whether the virtual machine exists or deleted. The Infrastructure Type column helps you to identify the physical servers and vCenter Server virtual machines.

Note

The icon helps you to differentiate non-ESXi physical servers from ESXi servers.
