Fabric administrators create cost profiles to define daily costs for memory and CPU for physical machines.

The values for daily cost specified in a cost profile can be up to four decimal places, although the values are rounded to two decimal places when displayed to end users in the catalog.

Storage cost specified in a cost profile is not taken into account for physical machines. If you assign a cost profile that includes a value for storage cost to a physical machine, it is ignored. You can account for the cost of using storage in the daily cost specified in the blueprint for the physical machine.
