Fabric administrators can view the costs for compute resources automatically populated from vRealize Business Standard Edition.


  • To view cost information from vRealize Business Standard Edition for a compute resource in IaaS, the vCenter Server that manages the host or cluster must be configured in both IaaS and vRealize Business Standard Edition.

  • Log in to the vRealize Automation console as a fabric administrator.


  1. Select Infrastructure > Compute Resources > Compute Resources.
  2. Point to a compute resource and click Edit.

    Compute resources that have cost information from vRealize Business Standard Edition have a value of Automatic in the Cost Profile column.

  3. Click the Configuration tab.


The daily costs for memory and CPU for the compute resource and the storage costs for each datastore are displayed. Storage cost for a specific datastore can also be viewed in reservations that include that datastore.
