In this report, ESG validated the economic benefits that customers have realized since deploying HPE Nimble Storage dHCI and used this as the basis to compare dHCI with several alternative vSAN-based HCI configurations from a leading vendor. A VMware sizing tool was used to generate configurations to meet the needs of a typical business-critical workload consisting of a mix of general purpose VMs and transactional databases. Our five-year total cost of ownership model found that the HPE Nimble Storage dHCI solution was able to meet the needs of the workload at a cost that was up to 2.5x lower while providing lower latency and higher levels of resiliency. The dHCI solution provided up to a 56% reduction in footprint, 55% lower cost of acquisition, and 53% reduction in operational overhead to deploy, administer, maintain, and support the system.
