As more and more customers evaluate cloud computing investments to improve the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of ICT in the public sector, I thought you would be interested in obtaining a copy of a free private cloud white paper and analysis which shows that a VMware private cloud solution can cost from four to nearly ten times more than a comparable Microsoft private cloud solution over a period of one to three years:
In the whitepaper, we compare private cloud solutions from Microsoft and VMware. We do this by defining private cloud using industry standard concepts, explain the Microsoft products needed to create a Microsoft private cloud solution and then define the technology benefits a Microsoft private cloud solution provides. We also examine how the licensing models differ between Microsoft and VMware and, in particular, how those licensing models will impact the ROI of investments you are making today and long into the future.
