Hadoop Drives Down Costs

Darryl K. Taft reporting the experience of using Hadoop at UC Irvine Medical Center:

Because they were bleeding money, the team wanted a cost-effective solution. “Our target was $500 per terabyte. We were at $100,000 per terabyte with the old system,” Peterson said. “With our Hadoop cluster, we’re now at $900 per terabyte.”

How are these costs calculated?

  1. Fixed costs: hardware, any one time licenses
  2. Recurring costs: hardware replacement, energy, HR

Is this all?
