Hitachi Data Systems White Paper: Tiered Storage in the Real World – Calculating the ROI and Cost Savings of a Move



Is there true value, a fast return on investment (ROI), and verifiable cost savings involved in a move to virtualized tiered storage?
What about the payback period and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) to be derived from this move when it’s based on foundational virtualization technology and the intelligence of the Hitachi TagmaStore® Universal Storage Platform?
While analysts and Hitachi Data Systems both answer a resounding “Yes” to such questions, this case study offers a different perspective: the quantifiable economic benefits achieved by one FORTUNE 500® company in its recent move to Hitachi tiered storage.
This case study documents the specific business and economic value derived by one enterprise company after its first year in a new storage architecture built on Hitachi tiered storage. Included is a detailed identification of several capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure (OPEX) savings achieved or anticipated within the first three years of deployment.
