The Scale Up vs. Scale Out TCO Tool provides organizations with a framework for estimating the costs associated with purchasing and licensing for a Scale-up and Scale-out Cassandra environment over a six-year period.

Use this tool to:

  • Compare the pre-populated values.
  • Insert your own amounts to contrast possible database decisions and determine the TCO of each.

Note that common assumptions can often be false; for example, open-source Cassandra running on many inexpensive commodity servers can actually have a higher TCO over six years than a Cassandra environment running on a larger single expensive piece of hardware. Therefore, calculating TCO is an essential part of the database decision process.
