53% cost savings2 Azure Services • 55 VMs: 20 medium, 22 extra large, 13 A7 • 35 TB LR storage • 35 TB zone 1 egress, 5 VPN connections 2Note: Assumptions have been sourced from public data sources including www.dell.com and www.hp.com and third party reports including Simpson, Nik. “Counting the cost of the Elephant in the Data Center.” Burton Group (2009). The savings quoted in the slides are actually quite conservative (e.g., we assume on-premises infrastructure is 100% utilized, assume a very power-efficient on-premises data center). Also, we are using EA Level A pricing to arrive at these numbers. For specific information on customer discounting levels, contact your partner account manager.
