VKernel Creates Chargeback Calculator and Methodology to Help Organizations Solve the Chargeback Challenge in a Virtualized Datacenter

In a virtual datacenter where numerous departments utilize shared resources many organizations are facing the challenge of figuring out what rate to charge users for memory, CPU, storage and network. Also challenging is how to recover costs for other expenses such as administrative fees, software licensing and cooling costs. While most organizations agree that utility based chargeback is the way to go help is desperately needed. VKernel has "cracked the code" and created a chargeback calculator and methodology to solve the chargeback challenge.
The chargeback calculator takes into consideration many variables including; ESX hosts, storage and network devices, all associated costs, number of user departments/cost centers, who is using the resource, profit margins (if needed) and cost recovery timeframe. Automatically, the calculator outputs the rates an organization should be charging per day for memory, CPU, storage and network.
The calculator is designed to be used on an ongoing basis. As changes to an organizations’ infrastructure occur the calculator rolls that information into the existing formula and recalculates the rates.

The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
