Equipment price and maintenance estimates are those of Technology News.
With the Z10 BC IBM has decoupled LSPR data for single and multiple image
benchmark tests, making comparisons difficult; users with large single image
workloads are advised to do their own performance testing.
Specialty engines on this series are priced at $47,500 (according to Gartner),
making them much less costly than their counterparts on the z9 BC or z10EC.
ZAAP, IFL, ICF or extra SAP maintenance adds $1,552 per month per unit.
Memory acquired with specialty engines (up to 16GB per engine) lists for $2,250
per gigabyte compared to $6,000 per gigabyte otherwise.
The same lower pricing may also be available under other conditions.
SI means single OS image, MI means multiple OS images.
PERF MSU is our estimate of performance MSU based on the IBM LSPR benchmarks.
SW PRICE MSU is IBM stipulated MSU for IBM's capacity based software pricing.
LSPR DATA is relative and based on 2094-701=1 for z/OS 1.9.
