Wow that’s a lot of V’s! But seriously! Chargebacks?! Are you serious?! But I wanted to create complicated scripts which really didn’t work and force me to do so much more work than I should! How daaaaaaare you make my life and job easier!

But yes, seriously, allow me to introduce “Business View” from Veeam!

While there is so much you can possibly do! and I’ll show screen shots, you can go click on the links to find out more than just the chargebacks which is all I’ll talk about.. :)

Define your chargeback model

Together with Veeam Monitor and Veeam Reporter Enterprise that provide comprehensive resource utilization and allocation information, Business View gives you the flexibility to define a chargeback model the way you want. In addition, you can easily export the VM groups’ information to a Microsoft Excel document for reporting or integration with other chargeback, inventory, or billing systems.

So I encourage you to check out Business View by Veeam, especially if managing your VMware investment is part of your job, and further trying to make it understandable to upper management :)

Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with Veeam, infact I think I’m a competitor? :)
