In order to effectively establish a case for going to one platform vs. another, strong fact-based analytical methodologies and approaches are needed.
In this paper the case for Hyper-Converged Appliances, and in particular the EMC VCE VxRail Appliance, is made from both cost and measureable effort perspectives. Strict reliance on measurables was used in lieu of anecdotal observations or customer quoted benefits in order to provide realistic and repeatable analysis.
Hitachi Data Systems commissioned Edison Group, Inc. to conduct a Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) economics study to evaluate the total cost of ownership (TCO) and total cost of acquisition (TCA) that could be realized from migrating self-build deployments, including… Continue Reading →
