Hi folks! Now with virtualization you find a lot of people putting their apps in the cloud. Now the question becomes, if you have multiple departments or companies using the same infrastructure, how do you charge that back?

In some companies this isn’t a requirement, but in a lot of companies it is. The ability to determine which department is using up your compute resources.

Well using VMware products you can easily make this happen! VMware vCenter Chargeback is a great product and you can read more about it here. You can also take it to the next level with VMware vCloud Director.
