The footprint itself and the amount of man-hours needed to run the whole thing had reduced our TCO. It's definitely lessened a lot. We started cutting costs. HCI helps do that on the operational side.

The solution has reduced our TCO. Because of one big piece of our former infrastructure was the Cisco SAN Fabric Switches. They're pretty pricey per port. We were using Fibre Channel, and now we're using iSCSI. A lot of things along those lines. SAN ports are costly.

I would say that our TCO has been lowered because we don't have as many storage shelves to worry about. Everything is now better compacted, or compressed.

On the topic of TCO, I can't speak to it for any specific customer, but in today's environment with the cost structure and cost pressure on IT, if this solution didn't improve TCO then it wouldn't sell. You're looking at a product that's disruptive in the sense that it can change the way you deploy headcount within your organization. It changes the way you deploy applications within your organization. That's all measured by executives from a TCO standpoint. If it's having success and people are being drawn to it, and people who have platforms are growing them, then it is probably having a positive effect on the organization.
