Based on the Uptime Institute’s FORCSS Methodology, this session offers a Comparative Cost Analysis for deploying IT workloads in internal and third-party data centers. Julian Kudritzki will discuss different methods for conducting a comparative cost analysis: How can you do an internal audit to track down your costs for delivering an IT service? Are there useful spreadsheets and checklists available for this kind of project? What are the pros and cons of hiring an outside firm? How do you conduct a cost comparison of third-party service providers? The second half of the presentation will feature two panelists from the Uptime Institute FORCSS Coalition discussing which approaches they’ve used, what works, and what doesn’t.
