VMware Cost Per Application Calculator…

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

This is one I missed out on based on time differences and crossed email. But VMware this week released a cost-per-application calucator. It basically works out something we should have really had a while ago – a way of pricing the cost of each VM based on consolidation ratios. Of course, the calculator proves that VMware cost less than all other virtualization vendors – NOW THERE’S SUPRISE!

Of course we all know this is true – but the trouble is – which cost do measure. The purchase prices that we are raising the purchase order – or much more sophisticated one where the measure is how much we get out of that software. Two different types of calculator. Weill guess by tommorow – there will be a Microsoft calculator that goes the other way – unless…. it already exists.
