Here is the updated Campus TCO Calculator that shows how Brocade can reduce power, cooling, and support costs. Some of the new features in the calculator are three-year free switch support [You don’t have to pay support for 3 years], HyperEdge Architecture mixed stack, shared controller licensing [You don’t need to buy duplicate licenses for the failover controller] and ports-on-demand [You don’t have to pay for the ports you don’t need]. All of the features mentioned contribute to lower Total Cost of Ownership[TCO] and are taken into account with this Campus TCO calculator. The tool compares 35 complete network solutions against equivalents from Cisco, HP, and Aruba. The calculator computes the total cost of ownership over 5 years and includes, cost of acquisition, service and support, power and cooling, and rack and floor space. There are advanced options that allow parameter customization based on specific needs. The tool also has the ability to generate a custom PDF report with detailed results on vendor comparisons.
All of the above can be achieved in just 3 steps.
1. Choose a vendor comparison
