TechWise Research Pioneers New Total Cost of Ownership Analysis

Responding to excessive Internet traffic bottlenecks and downtime caused by high profile viruses and worms, TechWise Research expanded its proprietary Reliability-Adjusted TCO™ technique to incorporate downtime caused by these culprits. This leading-edge paper entitled Total Cost of Ownership for Entry-Level and Mid-Range Clusters is the first that analyzes three leading RISC-based clusters on this important issue, focusing on HP OpenVMS/ AlphaServer, IBM AIX/pSeries, and Sun Solaris/Sun Fire clusters. TechWise Research interviewed 94 IT professionals to collect data on the operational costs associated with installing, managing, and maintaining their clusters. Information was also collected on the number of hours and associated costs for various downtime events each company experienced over a twelve-month period. All of these operational data were then combined with current system and service pricing (from IDEAS International) to calculate the Reliability-Adjusted TCO™ - an analytical approach that factors downtime costs/rates into the TCO analysis.
