Host specification - since many software licensing schemes are linked to server CPU specification, this tool requires
information about the number of servers/hosts, the number of CPUs per server, and the number of cores per CPU.
Virtual servers / VMs - provide the total number of VMs and the total number of allocated vCPUs if any of the cost
items are dependent on such parameters.
Desc - cost item description. Cost - unit cost.
Qty - quantity per single application/allocation. Allocation method - per environment, per host, per CPU, etc.
Type - one time or yearly recurring cost.
Cost items are grouped by type - one-time costs and yearly recurring costs. For each group the tool calculates the Total cost per item and the Grand Total values.
This tool is a beta version and we welcome your feedback.
Maximum number of Cost items = 25.
