Acquired in July 2011



Digital Fuel’s portfolio for IT costing, budget, chargeback, cost optimization, vendor management and SLA management helped companies plan, manage and optimize cost and value in cloud-based dynamic IT infrastructures. These solutions give companies a broad range of IT financial metrics, from physical and virtual systems to compute, storage and networking resources, whether those resources are on-premise or sourced from public cloud providers.


Combined with our existing virtualization management products, Digital Fuel's acquisition gave our customers a complete picture of IT costs and value. A comprehensive and unified financial understanding of IT costs will help customers make good business decisions, aligning financial trade-offs to business priorities. With Digital Fuel and VMware, IT can engage more effectively with business stakeholders through meaningful measurements and reports, including a Bill of IT Services, chargeback, service level reporting, and vendor scorecards.


Note: vRealize Business Enterprise was acquired by SkyView Partners. vRealize Business for Cloud continues as part of the vRealize portfolio.
