New study shows SimpliVity-Powered Clouds Rival AWS for Affordability, Efficiency, and Agility
SimpliVity, a leader in hyperconverged infrastructure revolutionizing enterprise IT, today announced the release of an independent study by the Evaluator Group, which compares per-VM (virtual machine) pricing between SimpliVity and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The study demonstrates SimpliVity’s ability to deliver a per-VM price that rivals even the largest public cloud providers, with cumulative three-year TCO savings of 22% to 49% compared to AWS.
“With a low cost to entry, many CIOs now view the public cloud as the best option for deploying scalable, agile IT infrastructure – while on-premises infrastructure or private clouds require more investment to support mission-critical applications with the highest resiliency and performance,” said Doron Kempel, CEO of SimpliVity. “But SimpliVity changed the equation. Not only does our hyperconverged infrastructure provide the performance, protection, and resiliency enterprises require, we also deliver the agility, elasticity, and efficiency of the public cloud – all at a lower cost than AWS.”
The Evaluator Group’s TCO model forecasts the long-term, cumulative costs between SimpliVity and AWS. This study shows that over a period of 36 months, the SimpliVity total cost of ownership (TCO) for 515 virtual machines is between 22% and 49% less expensive than the AWS options.
SimpliVity’s hyperconverged infrastructure powers enterprise and service provider clouds with its unique OmniStack Data Virtualization Platform. The solutions incorporate all IT functions and services below the hypervisor, delivering linear scale to match demand in easy to deploy x86 building blocks, integration with management tools to enable self-service provisioning, as well as all the predictable performance and resiliency enterprises require.
“For a decade, offerings like AWS have led the public cloud market by providing easily deployed IT systems that many companies chose over their own data centers. This popularity contributed to the assumption that the cloud was less expensive than an in-house infrastructure. But hyperconvergence is disrupting the status quo,” said Eric Slack, senior analyst at the Evaluator Group and co-author of the study. “Our study shows that, with hyperconvergence, the cost of deploying and operating a high performance, highly resilient, highly scalable IT infrastructure is actually less expensive than the cloud. Hyperconverged companies like SimpliVity have leveled the playing field, so their service provider customers can better compete in this fast-growing market, and enterprises can deploy private clouds that keep data on premises, at a dramatically lower TCO.”
