Yesterday VKernel released version 2.0 of its Chargeback product.
The startup recently recognized an increased competition with VMware, which has a capacity analyzer product (vCenter CapacityIQ) and a chargeback product (vCenter Chargeback), fully overlapping the VKernel offering.
So it doesn’t surprise much to see the introduction of support for Microsoft Hyper-V (both 2008 and 2008 R2), System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2008 R2 and System Center Operation Manager (SCOM) 2007 R2.
Chargeback 2.0 also introduces support for allocated and actual resource usage.
For some reason there’s no mention of support for VMware vSphere 4.0 or the new 4.1 despite the last version tracked by virtualization.info, 1.4, was released in February 2009.
