Why is business-class storage so expensive?
The infrastructure team at my company charges $10,000 per TB for storage costs. They charge this to us (internal) when we have new projects and need more disk.
Are we paying too much? Obviously a broad question, but please help out if you can.
They claim we get 200,000-300,000 IOPS with response time as low as .05ms.
Can we get close to that kind of performance for less $? Lets say we just need performance 1/3 as good, how much should that cost?
