    What a TCO Analysis won't tell you

    There are many hidden costs to operating an on-premises HPC infrastructure. These factors, including lost productivity and missed innovation, can negatively affect other R&D investments that depend on HPC. Most organizations will find that cloud-based HPC solutions will deliver better ROI, even when a basic Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis suggests continued investments in on-premises infrastructure.
