 Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Study

The Inquirer takes a look at total cost of ownership (TCO) of HP OpenVMS on Alphaservers, IBM's AIX on p-series machines, and Sun Solaris on Sun Fire clusters.

"One thing that the report makes very clear is that the vast majority of the TCO is due to costs associated with management and downtime, with the cost of downtime alone for more powerful clusters being more than 50% of the TCO. The costs associated with the purchase, installation and configuration of these clusters and any training of support staff are relatively minor by comparison."
