Welcome to the new SUSE Enterprise Storage forum.

SUSE Enterprise Storage, a scalable and resilient software-based storage solution, solves the problem of IT budgets remaining flat and not being able to cover the estimated 40 percent annual growth in data. It lets you build cost-efficient and highly scalable data storage using commodity, off-the-shelf servers and disk drives. Get more information here:

https://www.suse.com/products/suse-enterprise-storage/

This forum is to discuss the product, ask questions, etc.

Yes, the product page has lots of additional information but sometimes a document's title doesn't do it justice.

I thought I'd draw your attention to this one which shows that SES 4 has the lowest TCO compared to competitive products..

Enterprise Mass Storage Less than a Penny per GB Per Year TCO Case Study (https://www.suse.com/docrep/documents/h7cvzy1buf/Mass%20Storage%20TCO%20Case%20Study.pdf)

Sorry, seems something wrong with the data in SES presentations. Let's compare that document with the presentation we got las week (http://content.suse.com/more-storage-for-less/5-year-tco-case-study?utm_campaign=SUSE-GL-SDStorage-EM1-5-Year-TCO-Case-Study-GSDGNBT24062-CMcInelly&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua) (page 13). Here are both screenshots.

239 240

What is correct: "$10K per year" or "$10K per 4-node cluster"? Older SES-4 presentations says "$10K per 4-node cluster". Was the SES licensing changed in last several weeks and which presentation is valid?

It sure does. Both presentations are completely different. I don't know why and I don't work for SUSE but I have provided this feedback to SUSE on the product page.


The product page refers to this document:
Enterprise Mass Storage Less than a Penny per GB Per Year TCO Case Study
https://www.suse.com/docrep/documents/h7cvzy1buf/Mass%20Storage%20TCO%20Case%20Study.pdf

A second document with the same document number, date, and version but with completely different content and costs can be found here:

Which one is correct?

This discrepancy was first noticed and reported in this forum post:

Thank you for pointing this out!
