You can configure the depreciation method for server hardware, configure the pricing method to either utilization or allocation at the resource (CPU, memory, or storage) level and also set manual or automatic mode to assign compute rate for the resources.
Configure a Depreciation Method for Calculating Cost of Server Hardware You can configure vRealize Business for Cloud to use a depreciation method to compute amortized monthly cost of hardware component (for example, server, disks). You can set the depreciation period to two or seven years.
Configure the Pricing Method at Resource Level You can configure the pricing method as Allocation and Utilization for resources such as CPU, Memory, and Storage. The values in the vRealize Business for Cloud reports are calculated based on the pricing method calculation.
Configure the Pricing Method for Additional Charges You can configure the pricing method for operating system that runs on your VMs. The values in the vRealize Business for Cloud reports are calculated based on the pricing method calculation.
Configure Pricing Update Strategy You can select either to set the compute rate of resources (CPU, memory, and storage) automatically based on the running cost or to edit manually during vCenter Server pricing policy creation.
Configure Virtual Machine Instance Sizes You can define the sizes of virtual machine instances and set the compute resources (CPU and memory) for each size. The defined VM instance sizes can then be used to set the VM instance-based pricing for the pay-as-you-go allocation models of organization vDC.
