VMworld 2011, hosted by VMware, is in full-swing at Las Vegas (August 29 – September 1). The largest virtualization and cloud infrastructure event of the year was just the place for Bluelock’s unveiling of their all-new cloud-aware decision support tool Bluelock Portfolio™. The first of it’s kind, Portfolio will offer customers deeper visibility into the true cost of IT resources, enabling them to adjust their Virtual Datacenters to best align spending and utilization.

With great power comes great responsibility, and cloud infrastructure is no exception. The ability to see infrastructure consumption levels is increasingly important to understanding and managing the true costs of IT. Both over-allocation and under-allocation can spiral costs out of control. Now, Bluelock Portfolio enables customers to break down their cloud costs by region, site location, line of business, application or even by Virtual Datacenter. Monitoring usage and spending has never been easier in the cloud. Over-provisioned applications and potential overages can be adjusted through the self-service portal powered by VMware vCloud® Director.
