Looking at adding, upgrading or refreshing your Servers? Calculate the Benefits!

Many decision makers fail to look beyond the up-front investment. Before you decide on a new IT platform that will align with your organization’s business strategy, be sure to assess all direct and indirect costs involved over the entire lifecycle.  Measuring   the fixed and variable cost drivers of your IT assets over their useful service life gives you the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).  Additionally it is important to evaluate the efficiency of an investment or to compare the efficiency of a number of different investment scenarios with a ROI calculation.

 

HP has worked with Alinean to create easy to use tools for TCO/ROI analysis that will help you build the business case for evolving your IT infrastructure. Three of them are refreshed and available now:

 

 HP ProLiant Gen8 Benefits and Savings Calculator showcases the business value of migrating from multi-vendor legacy x86 servers to new Generation HP ProLiant x86 Servers. The refresh version includes now the latest HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers, downtime benefits and the impact of leasing.  In addition, the tool offers new reporting capabilities. 

 

With the updated CloudSystem Matrix TCO Calculator . you can compare the total cost of ownership between rack or basic blade server configurations and HP Cloud Matrix including the new HP ProLiant Gen8 servers.

Latest Network Modeling with FCoE for new Rack Servers has been incorporated in the tool and it offers a comprehensive Powerpoint report generated for the financial analysis.

 

Rack to HP BladeSystem TCO Calculator lets you figure out how much you can save by making the move to HP BladeSystem. The new BladeSystem TCO Calculator is easy to use and goes beyond the rack to blade server comparison so you can customize your location, industry and currency. Like our other TCO Calculators you can create your own report.

 

If you are new to using tools on the site, Click on “New User Access" and a login + password will be sent to you.   Scroll down the list of ROI tools to the “HP Servers” section and select "CloudSystem Matrix TCO Calculator" or “ProLiant ROI Calculator”  or “ Rack to HP BladeSystems TCO Calculator”
