Dell Inc. commissioned Principled Technologies to estimate how many months it would take to recapture initial investment costs when consolidating multiple 4-year-old Dell PowerEdge 2850 server and storage solutions onto a Dell PowerEdge R710 server (powered by Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 Series) and storage solution. In this report, we estimate both the number of older solutions each Dell PowerEdge R710 solution can replace and the payback period for replacing those older solutions. One key finding discovered is that each Dell PowerEdge R710 solution can replace up to nine Dell PowerEdge 2850 solutions, and could yield a payback in around 9 months.
