Data Center Total Cost of Ownership Models


These models were developed by Vasileios Kontorinis, with useful assistance from B.Aksanli, J.Sampson, T.Rosing and D.Tullsen
We extend APC's TCO analysis from www.apc.com/tools/isx/tco/ and the models from chapter 6 of "The Datacenter as a Computer: An Introduction to the Design of Warehouse-Scale Machines"

The code is provided "as is", under FreeBSD license, with no promise of support whatsoever.

When using the model to produce published research, please cite it with:

"Managing Distributed UPS Energy for Effective Power Capping in Data Centers",

When you do use or acquire the models, please send an email to bkontorinis(a)gmail.com, so that we can keep track of who has it.
