Using System Center 2012 SP1, the Data Warehouse can be accessed by many different types of reporting interfaces. It has been designed using industry best practices to work well with traditional business intelligence applications like SQL Server Reporting Services, SharePoint and Excel. Create reports and dashboards which pull data from either the SQL data mart database(s), the OLAP cubes, or both.

Learn to use chargeback reports, so you can use cloud-based pricing to:

  • Define a price for each VMM cloud (Pricesheet)—analogous to an SLA
  • Review sample chargeback reports
  • Customize a sample chargeback report for use in his ITorganization
  • Minimize oversubscription by customers
  • Minimize underutilization by customers

Virtual Labs are free, hands-on learning environments—no complicated installation

Chargeback
and Reporting

 

This lab is designed to help IT pros get you started with Chargeback and reporting. You will see how to apply cloud-based  pricing on Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) fabric and show that information to customers to try to minimize virtual machine (VM) oversubscription and underutilization. This lab will focus on using the new OLAP cubes  (Chargeback) in Service Manager 2012 SP1.

Note: the lab spins up two windows: one is the lab environment, and the second is the step-by-step guide documentation.

How to try this solution, full-featured, and at no cost?

System Center 2012 R2 builds on System Center 2012 to enable at-scale management of major Windows Server 2012 R2 capabilities, including Hyper-V Replica, dynamic VHDX resize, and Storage Spaces. Trial the System Center 2012 R2 Preview at the TechNet Evaluation Center.
