If cloud architectures were human beings, their development stage would fall squarely in the middle of adolescence. Enterprises are at an inflection point with their cloud deployments as they migrate from ad hoc projects to full-fledged, mature, integrated cloud architectures. The discussion around cloud reflects the trepidation and uncertainty that come with adolescence: Cloud advocates express excitement, whereas others voice concern about these developments.
Explore three key Cloud computing models—integrated infrastructure systems, reference architectures, and “build your own” solutions. See how EMC gives you the freedom to chose the optimal path to your private Cloud—and the solutions to support your deployment.
Standardized, scalable, pre-assembled, and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules provide a “total cost of ownership” (TCO) savings of 30% compared to traditional, built-out data center power and cooling infrastructure. Avoiding overbuilt capacity and scaling the design over time contributes to a significant percentage of the overall savings. This white paper provides a quantitative TCO analysis of the two architectures, and illustrates the key drivers of both the capex and opex savings of the improved architecture.
