The Cloud Comparison option lets you add virtual machine groups or import virtual machine groups from your private cloud to vRealize Business for Cloud for cost comparison purpose.

vRealize Business for Cloud compares the cost of the virtual machine groups in the private cloud with that of similar groups in the public cloud models. The costs are updated in all the service models if you change the virtual machine configuration. vRealize Business for Cloud calculates the virtual machine cost for the private cloud on the basis of CPU cores, CPU speed, RAM, price plan, up time, operating system for a single virtual machine, and Network Attached Storage (NAS) and Storage Area Networks (SAN) for group storage. vRealize Business for Cloud searches the instance type to get the configuration requirements with the smallest CPU and memory, and have available prices for the requested operating system, region, and policy.
