Expert Report: Three Ways SSDs Reduce Total Cost of Ownership

Solid state drives (SSDs) can offer lower total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to legacy hard disk drives (HDDs). Many companies are moving quickly to implement solid state data centres. Others are staying with legacy infrastructures of HDDs. Why is that?

Survey Says

One of the reasons legacy HDD infrastructures persist was revealed in a recent Forrester Research/Micron survey of IT decision makers and influencers. According to the survey, nearly 48 percent of those who have not adopted SSDs stated that the main barrier to SSD adoption was cost.

 In the same survey, organisations that decided to move to SSDs said they wanted to: 

  • Improve application performance (the number one reason) 
  • Modernise the data centre with a technology refresh and new technology initiatives 
  • Improve storage capacity 

The survey also reported that the organisations who have already adopted SSDs are now able to use IT resources more efficiently. Their administrators supported four times as much data after SSD adoption and their power consumption (an indirect cost) decreased by an average of nine percent.
