The perception that IBM Power Systems is a dying platform, built on old technology, is creating pressure on IT leaders to migrate to a cheaper solution, such as commodity x86 servers. In addition to assessing the future viability of this platform in terms of ongoing ISV support, integration capability, and availability of resources, IT leaders must also evaluate cost to make an accurate comparison to alternative platforms.

Use this tool to determine and compare the TCO based on:

  • Hardware costs
  • System software costs
  • Integration costs
  • Facilities costs (e.g. power and cooling)
  • Other costs where applicable

The tool output includes a summary of costs year-by-year, and over a 6-year period.
