Cost Calculator

Use our cost calculator to see how much you could save on storage by using our compression software.   Input the values for your current storage costs, current actual compression ratio and the cost of achieving that compression ratio.  The table then shows you how that compares to the savings possible by using PetaSuite.

Comparison of effective cost of 1TB of data...

S ...using no compression
E1 ...using Other Technique Compression
E2 ...using PetaGene Compression

R = compression ratio = (size of file before compression) / (size of file after compression)
P = proportion of storage saved = 1 − (1 / R)
S = cost of 1 TB of physical storage (capex+opex over five years, either on-premises or cloud)
C = cost of 1 TB of compression savings charged by compression vendor

Therefore:
E = effective cost of 1 TB of data after compression = [(1 − P) × S] + [P × C]
