This blog post summarizes the issue for today's Peer Incite and provides some additional background material for the session:
Here are the key graphics we'll discuss today:
- Data accounts for capex as costs depreciated over a 48-month period or lease costs.
- In no instance is Oracle DAS less expensive than SAN due to Oracle’s license fees at $20K - $30K per server.
- SANs of 20TB and under assume iSCSI SAN.
- Larger SANs use EMC CX (100/200 TB) and V-Max (500/1200 TB).
- Includes incremental server and software license costs to accommodate increased compute requirements.
- SAN is a fungible asset that can be shared across the application portfolio
- At 200TBs, a One-off model is 15% more expensive than a storage services approach
- The efficiency improvements from a storage services model at 20TB and up range from 8-23% relative to a One-off approach
- The ability to share resources across the application portfolio is the key enabler.
