Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of Dell, HP, and IBM Blade Solutions
Enterprises of all sizes are deploying or considering deploying blade systems as a way to consolidate resources and lower their total cost of ownership. These solutions tend to be easier to deploy and manage than traditional rack servers and offer lower energy consumption for both server power and cooling.
We calculated the total cost of ownership (TCO) for the Dell PowerEdge M-Series Blades powered by Intel Xeon processors, the HP BladeSystem c-Class, and the IBM BladeCenter H Type 8852. Our 1-, 3-, and 5-year TCO estimates included costs for hardware, support, management software, power, cooling, data center costs, and out-of-box setup. Read this white paper to learn about these different systems and which ultimately has the lowest TCO.
