Evaluator Group TCO Analysis: Is a Hyperconverged Infrastructure Cost-Competitive with the Cloud?

The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most
consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud
service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at
least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so
popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a
cloud-based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO
(Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from Hewlett Packard Enterprise and a
comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
