Data center costs are a little bit more expensive with FlexPod, but you're paying for the redundancy and flexibility.

It has also reduced data centered costs. It's hard to quantify, but there's a lot less bare metal that we need. It's all in FlexPod, so maybe a 40% saving. That's a guess, but it's significant.

I don’t know that it has reduced costs, but it hasn’t incurred any higher costs. It’s probably reduced costs in the fact that as things improve they get smaller.

Data center costs are reduced by means of less power, cooling, and space. I would say it is a fifty percent reduction.

The product does not really reduce data center costs directly. NetApp is not cheap. It does improve the cost of doing business because of lower management overhead.

This solution has probably not reduced our data center costs because our previous solution was relatively small. It was just one rack.

Director of Data Center Operations at Barry University
Our data center costs have been reduced because we've been able to shrink our data center. About ten years ago, we were at about one hundred and seventy servers. Now, we're down to eight blades. We've gone from seven racks down to two racks in the data center, and if you think about power, cooling, and everything else, it's a significant saving.

We have been able to reduce our data center costs since implementing this solution. Three or four years ago, we were able to shrink our data center by fifty percent. This was a co-location leased space that we were able to reduce.

We went from two racks down to one at one location. With cooling, there is less hardware.

We use a smaller footprint of equipment right now.
We reduced our footprint of equipment by approximately 80 percent. Meaning that about 70 percent of our cabinets right now are empty because we switched to FlexPod.

FlexPod has saved data center costs, due to the fact that we reduced our footprint for storage in a big way. We went from three complete racks down to a 2U storage array for more than 300 terabytes of storage.

Zbyszek Sitarek
IT Manager at Capgemini
Our data center costs have decreased as a result of having FlexPod. We could reduce the number of racks in which we are using in the data center because of the way FlexPod works. I think that at this moment, compared to what we had before using FlexPod, we still have a lower footprint in the data center as we had 10 years ago.

In terms of switches, cabling, the chassis — being able to fit eight servers in 6U obviously, helps out in terms of data center savings.
