TCO Calculators Can Help SMBs

Patrick Avery

Making purchases or upgrades at small businesses can be a daunting challenge, says IT Business Edge's Paul Mah. But ITBE's Knowledge Network partner Uptime Institute has a tool that can help.


The True TCO Calculator presents a simple approach to enable managers to assess the true total costs of building, owning and operating their data center physical facilities.

In addition to the True TCO Calculator, the Uptime Institute also uploaded the documents Determining True Cost of Ownership for Data Centers and Data Center Capacity and Energy.
