There are two types of ways Cloud Insights can collect data in your environment, depending whether the source of the data is infrastructure or a service.

Infrastructure assets include hardware resources in your own data center and cloud providers. To collect from these assets an acquisition unit is required. This is a lightweight VM that you control, and is used to securely transmit data to Cloud Insights.

Service assets are applications and servers in the environment. Metrics can be directly collected from these assets without an acquisition unit.

*Available for environments of 500 managed units and larger

Pricing is based on the number of Managed Units (MUs) you wish to monitor.

An MU is defined as:

Compute: 1 Managed Unit = 2 hosts (virtual or physical)
Storage: 1 Managed Unit = 4 TB of unformatted external capacity in a physical or virtual storage
(doesn't account for the compute local storage)

For example, if you have 100 hosts and 100 TB of storage, you would purchase (100/2) + (100/4) = 75 MUs.


Volume discounts available (1000+ MUs/mo)
