Calculation includes analysis based on performance, power, cooling, electricity rates, operating system annual license costs and estimated server costs. This assumes 8kW racks, $0.10 per kWh, cooling costs are 2x the server power consumption costs, operating system license cost of $900/year per server, per server cost of $7200 based on estimated list prices and estimated server utilization rates. All dollar figures are approximate. Performance and power comparisons are based on estimated server side java benchmark results (Intel Corporation Jan 2010). Platform power was estimated during the steady state window of the benchmark run and at idle. Performance gain compared to baseline was 15x. –Baseline platform: Intel server platform with two 64-bit Intel Xeon Processor 3.80Ghz with 2M L2 Cache, 800 FSB, 8x1GB DDR2-400 memory, 1 hard drive, 1 power supply, Microsoft* Windows* Server 2003 Ent.
