The Storage Economist

Archive for December, 2012

I like looking at trends. Let’s take a look at one storage economics trend—the ratio of CAPEX to OPEX in the total cost of storage ownership.

I am working in Sweden this week, meeting with various customers and speaking at the Hitachi Information Forum in Stockholm. I was fortunate to visit 2 customers, and was very surprised to find that they embrace some key enablers that reduce unit costs of storage:

In my last few blogs, I discussed options to reduce costs, and how at certain points in time (right now for more and more clients), challenging and changing the IT ownership paradigm is one of the best ways to reduce both OPEX and CAPEX within the storage/IT department.
