Thank you for your responses.

Based on the information you have provided, we believe that size and distributed nature of your database environment presents a MAJOR opportunity to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership by as much as 35% through consolidation in a virtualized environment and the consequent reduction of server hardware, software license, administration and support costs.

We would welcome the opportunity to review this with you in more detail in order to provide a more detailed assessment and breakdown of potential TCO gains.

Thank you for your responses.

Based on the information you have provided, we believe that your database environment presents a SIGNIFICANT opportunity to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership by between 20% and 25% through consolidation in a virtualized environment and the consequent reduction of server hardware, software license, administration and support costs.

We would welcome the opportunity to review this with you in more detail in order to provide a more detailed assessment and breakdown of potential TCO gains.
Thank you for your responses.

Based on the information you have provided, we believe that there are potential TCO gains to be made, but that the lack of virtualization or opportunity to change the virtualized environment in the short term will limit the scope of these benefits.

We would welcome the opportunity to review with you the improvements possible within your current environment, and also to discuss with you the operational and financial benefits of using virtualization technologies
