HPE OneSphere allows you to collect data on costs associated with your public and private provider accounts, appliances, and display them as an interactive dashboard view, or as downloadable reports or budgets. Both the dashboard view and the reports/budgets option allow you to configure data from multiple categories, including provider type, account information, region, date range, and more. Currently, HPE OneSphere only shows costs/rates in US Dollars ($).
For Amazon Web Services (AWS), the cost includes all payer accounts that you connected to HPE OneSphere as Public Billing Accounts, and any member accounts associated with those payer accounts in AWS. Cost information for these member accounts will appear in Insights whether or not you have connected those member accounts to HPE OneSphere.
For Microsoft Azure, the cost includes all enterprise accounts that you connected to HPE OneSphere as Public Billing Accounts, and any subscription accounts connected to those enterprise accounts in Azure. Cost information for these subscription accounts will appear in Insights whether or not you have connected those subscription accounts to HPE OneSphere.
For private cloud providers, the cost represents actual usage costs for the vCPU, memory, and disk usage rates defined per private cloud provider/zone.
For the appliances, the cost represents total usage cost of the bare metal including CPU cores, memory, and storage.
Only HPE OneSphere Administrators and Analysts have permission to access cost analytics information. HPE OneSphere users with the Project Creator and Consumer roles will not see Insights on their main menu. However, Consumer's will still be able to see costs associated with the particular project they are assigned to.
When you first click Insights, the System Default Dashboard view is displayed. Click Reports in the banner at the top of the screen to see the Reports screen. Click Budgets in the banner at the top of the screen to see the Budgets screen.
After a custom dashboard view or a report/budget is saved, it will be visible by other administrators and analysts with accounts in your HPE OneSphere management service.
