Executive Summary

The Dell PowerEdge R515 server can quickly recapture initial investment costs and deliver savings for small to medium businesses (SMBs) replacing multiple legacy servers. We compared two legacy HP servers, one with an external storage array, each running one workload, to the Dell PowerEdge R515 with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 running both workloads in Windows Server? 2008 R2 Hyper-V? virtual machines (VMs). Out total cost of ownerships (TCO) analysis shows that the new Dell PowerEdge 515, featuring a large internal storage capacity and AMD Operton? 4100 Series processors, can provide up to a 28.0 percent 3-year TCO advantage over continued operation of two legacy HP servers running older AMD processors and older versions of SQL Server, and can deliver a return on investment (ROI) payback in 19 months.
