White Paper: Tape Storage TCOSource: Spectra Logic Corporation
This paper focuses on the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of a product or solution. To the point, it will concentrate on the short and long-term cost factors associated with owning or operating your gear and why you should be thinking about them when you buy. It will also provide a simple, theoretical TCO analysis as an example of what may be done when assessing purchase options. From this, you may quickly realize that highly discounted purchase prices up front do not always result in long-term cost savings to your firm.
