VKernel Releases VMware certified VA Chargeback and Capacity Reporting


Just got this in from V-Kernel's CEO:

As organizations move to virtualized production data centers
shared by many departments, providing a painless method for monitoring capacity, resource usage
and recovering cost is a pressing issue. VMware identifies chargeback as one of the key impediments
to growth of virtualization in the data center. Customers simply don’t know how they will justify, pay for
and recover the millions of dollars from business users needed to buy new hardware.
VKernel eliminates the pain from the chargeback process. Designed as a “plug and play” virtual
appliance, the company’s offering is the first virtual appliance certified by VMware to meter resource
usage by departments and automatically generate chargeback and capacity reports. The VKernel
virtual appliance requires no installation and becomes operational in minutes after downloading.
