There are many factors that should influence the decision-making process when considering Hyper-Converged Appliances. In order to effectively introduce modern technologies into your IT environment, strong fact-based analytical methodologies and approaches are required.
This Edison Group white paper analyzes the total cost of ownership and acquisition (TCO/TCA), and relative work efforts to install, initialize and maintain the VCE VxRail™ Hyper-Converged Appliance. This experience is compared and contrasted to the process of a Build Your Own (BYO) system approach. Strict reliance on measurable data was used with anecdotal observations and customer quoted benefits in order to provide a realistic and repeatable analysis.
