This Alinean study, shows that migrating to the latest X6 enterprise rack servers allowed the client to lower annual operating costs by a significant 80%, leading to substantial savings of $5,522,875 over a three year analysis period.

A large part of the savings came from reduced hardware and software purchase and maintenance costs. In this study, the company was able to purchase a new highly efficient X6 enterprise server for less than what it was paying for annual maintenance on its current HP servers.
