Unified government for all the clouds can be controlled centrally consumption in public and private clouds. Continuous cost optimization can be achieved with intelligent analysis of consumer trends in the cloud. This provides recommendations for future purchases, while keeping costs in optimized cloud

Cluster level analysis is a feature to see the cost of Nutanix clusters that have implemented and make decisions about future consumption efficiently.

Beam displays resources by groups and departments, allowing operators to manage cloud use and implement policies based on budgets. In some cases, this leads to better management of budgets and presentation of costs by identifying which computers are increasing spending on cloud and ensuring that management can make decisions based on data. In addition, Beam provides reports and counter charges based on policies so that teams can ensure that consumption is within budget and aligned with business objectives.

Support for private cloud environments is a big step to make a real analysis of the total cost of ownership (TCO) environments between private and public cloud. These ideas are critical in deciding the type of workloads to be deployed in the public cloud versus private. Thus, Beam enable customers to identify the right cloud for each application, mitigating lock supplier and ensuring optimum use of the resources of the cloud, regardless of the supplier.

I like how easy it is to use and the comprehensive insights Beam gives you in your environment

The cost and usage reports have been very valuable as an administrator and communicating this to our executive team

I think the compliance tool is another valuable tool when dealing with resources that have certain compliance requirements

The other nice thing about the cost management is the ability to create budgets and alerts

The scheduled reports are a nice to have a well, this allowed me to automatically communicate changes and billing to our executive teams

What do you dislike?

The support isn't as good as it used to be when it was Botmetric

I would appreciate more out of the box reports to choose from.

One reason we longer use BEAM is the way it's now priced, it became to expensive once Nutanix bought out BotMetric

AWS reporting is getting better so they will need to continue improving the product to provide value for the customer.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do the evaluation and see if it's worth the cost

We use Beam for our reporting and staying on top of our environment from security holes to under consumed resources.
