The Storage Economist

Archive for November, 2010

My previous two  blog entries  have shown how price ≠ cost applies not only to standard SAN and NAS storage architectures, but also to cloud storage architectures. So far, we have reached several conclusions:

My previous entry introduced some of the cost and architecture parameters that I have been investigating relative to cloud storage architectures. I have shown that looking at cost of acquisition only, it is easy to see that DAS is the winner. Both TCO and TCDO measurements counts only the CAPEX costs associated with storage ownership. [...]

Over the last two years, I have attempted to capture and document several ‘economic observations’ of new cloud architectures being deployed. My interest is in the total costs of these new deployments, and to look for recurring cost patterns that are similar to older/existing storage architectures. This is the first in a three-part series on [...]
