Cost Drivers are the expense types based on which the VMware Cloud services calculate your private cloud costs. Your total private cloud cost is the sum of all the cost drivers for that cloud. You can see the cost of each expense type on the Cost Drivers page.

You can manually edit the monthly cost of all the eight expense types. Based on your inputs, VMware Cloud services calculate the total amount of private cloud expenses. If you do not provide inputs regarding expenses, VMware Cloud services calculate the total amount based on the default values defined in the reference database.
