Track Cloud Costs

UI Cloud Configuration

The Track Cloud Cost check box mentioned in the Configure Cloud(s) page allows you to track cloud cost for each cloud. When you deploy an application on a cloud, there is a cost for running the VM instance for this application on the cloud. The cost associated with this instance can be passed on to the tenant or user based on the deployment setup. You can manage this cost by checking this box in the CCM UI’s Cloud Configuration page.

If you do not check the Track Cloud Cost check box, the cloud cost is not calculated. If checked, you must wait for the next billing cycle (runs at the top of every hour) to view the cost and usage details. See Invoice Details and Financial Overview for additional context.

Instance Type Pricing

Administrators can customize cloud instance type pricing. Consider a scenario where a company has a volume pricing agreement for a public cloud such that consumption is below list price or a private cloud that a central governing authority wants to pass on costs to a set of constituents. Using the administrative tools provided by the CCM, enterprises have the ability to control and override prices and address other similar situations.
