vCOPS report to help size for vCloud Air

I was asked recently by one of my partners if there was a specific report that can be run within vCenter Operations Manager to help gather the size of an environment to then quote for some vCloud Air resources.  The best report to run to gather this information is the Virtual Machine List Report:

This will produce the following report for all VM's that vCOPS is currently monitoring:

You can also use the legacy C# client to gather this information and export to a .csv file if you prefer:

One thing to point out with the C# client is that it will show total space provisioned which will include snapshots and overhead.
