• Vblock is a technology and architecture offering. And it makes better use of hardware
investment as expected.
• But the major savings when looking at Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) are in the area of time
and effort for upgrade and continuous change projects.
• This is important because overall more than 80% of today’s IT cost is not systems but
system and application management.
