EMC, NetApp, and HP Midrange Storage Arrays

Many factors contribute to the ownership cost for enterprise storage. These include (but are not limited to): physical capacity relative to physical space requirements, performance capacity for data transfer and system reaction time, software maintenance and updates, expandability and flexibility, hardware purchase price, software licensing costs, hardware expansion or upgrade costs, administrator training, power utilization, day-to-day management costs, and third-party costs for installation, configuration, and integration. Three of these factors -- training, power utilization and day-to-day management -- have a large and increasingly critical impact on Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) today.
