While PCs have historically dominated the workplace, that may not be the case for much longer. Apple devices have experienced explosive growth in recent years, rising 128 percent since 20101. This growth has been attributed to a number of factors including: lower total cost of ownership, improved security, improved productivity and user preference1.
Traditionally, the best practice for mission-critical Oracle Database backup and recovery was to use storage-led, purpose-built backup appliances (PBBAs) such as Data Domain, integrated with RMAN, Oracle’s automated backup and recovery utility. This disk-based backup approach solved two problems:
1) It enabled faster recovery (from disk versus tape)
2) It increased recovery flexibility by storing many more backups online, enabling restoration from that data to recover production databases; and provisioning copies for test/dev.
At its core, however, this approach remains a batch process that involves many dozens of complicated steps for backups and even more steps for recovery. Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (RA) customers report that total cost of ownership (TCO) and downtime costs (e.g. lost revenue due to database or application downtime) are significantly reduced due to the simplification and, where possible, the automation of the backup and recovery process.

Today’s modern institution moves at the speed of information. Asking yesterday’s
finance, HCM, and student information systems to keep pace doesn’t really make sense, does it?
Leaders from The Ohio State University, University of Rochester, and Vassar College highlight how their
move to the cloud increased productivity, improved efficiencies, lowered the total cost of ownership,
and—most importantly—gave their staff and students the necessary tools to succeed.
While simple fixes may cost a few thousand dollars, lost revenue from equipment failures can run into the millions of dollars in lost productivity and replacement costs. There can be longer-term impacts, too, if the downtime inhibits a manufacturer’s ability to meet customer needs.
That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term.
By adopting a total cost of ownership (TCO) program, companies can find efficiencies they didn’t even know existed and reap benefits they didn’t realize were possible. Download our white paper, “The Cost Reduction Game,” to learn more about how a TCO program can help increase equipment reliability, extend equipment life, and lower energy costs.
Forrester study reveals how a typical HPE SimpliVity customer reduces total cost of ownership by 69% by consolidating infrastructure, reducing CAPEX and OPEX, and simplifying system administration. The cost savings enable a 183% investment return with a short 7.2 month payback.
With Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi, you get better, more consistent performance for end users. Ruckus access points have been proven to support 30-50% more clients without a performance penalty.

You are most likely reading this because you are either an Oracle Retail customer or are about to embark on an Oracle Retail implementation. As with all major application implementations, you must make a significant investment, often of several months or more, to develop a reliable and efficient batch schedule.
With CA Automic Workload Automation, you can cut the batch schedule development and implementation time to just a few weeks, and also reduce ongoing maintenance. The result is reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).
This white paper describes how CA can help significantly shorten your Oracle Retail batch schedule development time. In addition, the paper describes how this Oracle Validated solution optimizes performance of Oracle Retail so your core retail processes will run faster and be more agile.

NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Trend Micro Deep Discovery Inspector Model 4000 (Hardware model 4100) v3.8 SP5 and OfficeScan (OSCE) v12.0.1807. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Breach Detection Systems (BDS) Test Methodology v4.0 available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Trend Micro’s participation.
While the companion Comparative Reports on security, performance, and total cost of ownership (TCO) will provide information about all tested products, this Test Report provides detailed information not available elsewhere.
If you’re anything like your peers, you are evaluating your education technology on an annual basis to determine if it’s time for a refresh. While most schools conduct their device refreshes during the summer because teachers, staff and students are not present, this timing can prove costly as the market is flooded with devices from schools doing the same thing.
To help school districts re-think their technology spending to focus more on total cost of ownership and residual value, as opposed to upfront cost, we’ve partnered with Diamond Assets — a technology buyback company — to explain:
• The true value and cost of iPad and Chromebook in education
• When schools receive the most trade-in value for their technology
• How to prepare for and execute technology refreshes
Modern storage arrays can’t compete on price without a range of data reduction
technologies that help reduce the overall total cost of ownership of external
storage. Unfortunately, there is no one single data reduction technology that fits
all data types and we see savings being made with both data deduplication and
compression, depending on the workload. Typically, OLTP-type data (databases)
work well with compression and can achieve between 2:1 and 3:1 reduction,
depending on the data itself. Deduplication works well with large volumes of
repeated data like virtual machines or virtual desktops, where many instances or
images are based off a similar “gold” master.

We are living in an age of explosive data growth. IDC projects that the digital universe is growing 50% a year, doubling in size every 2 years. In media and entertainment, the growth is even faster as capacity-intensive formats such as 4K, 8K, and 360/VR gain traction. Fortunately, new trends in data storage are making it easier to stay ahead of the curve.
In this paper, we will examine how object storage stacks up against LTO tape for media archives and backup. In addition to a detailed total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis covering both capital and operational expenses, this paper will look at the opportunity costs of not leveraging the real-time data access of object storage to monetize existing data.
Finally, we will demonstrate the validity of the analysis with a real-world case study of a longstanding network TV show that made the switch from tape to object storage.
The limitations of tape storage go way beyond its lack of scalability. Data that isn’t searchable is becoming

Using your allotted resources wisely is admirable. However, have you thought in detail about the real costs associated with using “white box” servers? The Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®) delivers advantages, including a lower total cost of ownership (TCO), beyond those that white-box servers can deliver.
The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
More sales. Cost efficiency. Higher profits. – Every marketer wants these, but over-emphasizing unit cost of POP materials over the total cost of production makes them miss out on chances to achieve them.
Taking a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) approach to supply chain management for brand activations enables marketers to grow their business more quickly and profitably. It entails, however, embracing new ways of thinking that can involve “unlearning” the status quo. This piece looks at factors comprising the three main categories contributing to Total Cost of Ownership: Direct Costs, Indirect Costs, and Post-Purchase Costs.
