Are you looking for a way to show departments what they spend?

Embotics has embedded simple-to-identify metrics based on real-life customers to compare your costs with other organizations. This enables you to show your users how they are doing compared to the budget and to other departments.

With our comprehensive Embotics® vCommander™ Cost Modeling feature, you can quickly create independent cost models for multiple hypervisors and clouds for effective workload cost comparisons. Furthermore, you can provide decision makers and stakeholders with cost transparency for informed budgetary planning, and assign ancillary costs such as support, monitoring, patch management, etc., to VMs.

With an average deployment time of less than one hour, and the ability to incorporate historical data, Embotics vCommander can demonstrate value to all stakeholders within hours—thus paying for itself in just one day.

Additionally, the ability to assign additional metadata for reporting and identification of departments, as well as the information regarding the lineage of the machine, is always included with vCommander, thus enabling accurate showback.
