What is "Estimated vs deployed" report?


Applies to: Nerdio Manager for MSP (NMM) v3.0.0+


NMM's Cost Estimator (CE) allows you as a MSP to estimate your customers' costs of running AVD environments using Nerdio. Based on the information entered, the Cost Estimator generates a cost estimate. However, the actual costs may differ from the estimated ones. Subsequently, the Azure bill ends up being different from what the Cost Estimator had estimated which may not be what you had expected. To avoid any unpleasant surprises, NMM portal helps you generate an "Estimated vs deployed" report that shows the discrepancy (or match) between what you had estimated versus what you have actually set up in an account. Once you get a fair idea of your "estimated vs deployed" data, you can get a more realistic view of your costs.

To view Estimated vs deployed report, log into your account and navigate to Reports tab:

Note: Blue color indicates that deployed configuration is less expensive than the estimated configuration. Yellow color indicates that the deployed configuration is more expensive than the estimated configuration.

The Estimated vs Deployed report is divided into the following sections:

  • Desktops pooled: You can view a detailed report of VM size, OS disk size, number of users, number of hosts, etc for each of your host pools and compare estimated vs deployed data for each of these parameters as shown below:Desktops_pooled.png
