This topic provides an overview of the architecture of TrueSight Cloud Cost Control. The following illustration depicts the high-level architectural components. The table that follows the diagram provides additional information.
The ETL modules or extractors import infrastructure data such as, virtual machines, storage devices, clusters, and their associations , and cost and usage data (for public clouds). The data collected is used by the Cost Estimation service to estimate costs.
For information about the supported data sources, see Collecting data.
The data collected by the ETL modules is stored in the Capacity Optimization database.
The application engine, which resides in the Application Server, includes the application logic. It uses the resource usage and cost data to generate the cost estimates, aggregation, forecasts, resource optimization, and cloud migration simulation results.
