TCO for running SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems
As a service provider, it’s vital for you to know where you and your clients can save money, not only because saving money is good, but because it enables you to leverage an advantage for new business.
Which is why it’s worth bearing in mind that, even though the cost of acquisition can be the same, a single IBM Power Server replaces up to three x86 servers – representing a significant difference in the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Why is the TCO lower? While the cost for electricity, network and labour per unit is fixed, an IBM Power Systems implementation simply requires less resources, resulting in a lower cost over time.
So, before taking what seems to be the easiest route and choosing x86 servers, it really does pay to consider IBM Power Systems.
