Saving money on your blade infrastructure is easy if you know what to look for. First, make sure the solution can meet your performance needs. Then, look at the upfront costs for implementing the solution as well as power efficiencies that can mean reduced operating costs throughout the life of your datacenter.
In our tests, we found that both solutions supported 16VMs and delivered an average of over 30,000 OPM per VM, while the Dell/AMD/Microsoft solution used 26.1 percent less power. The Dell/AMD/Microsoft solution was not only more power-efficient – it was also 27.5 percent less expensive per VM than the HP/Intel/VMware solution. When planning your blade infrastructure, choose wisely. As our test results and cost analysis have shown, selecting a power-efficient AMD Opteron 6300 Series processor-powered Dell PowerEdge M915 has the potential to save you in both capital and operating expenses.
