Upgrade Your IT Hardware–It’s Time

According to a recent Intel-ESG survey the benefits are many.

How can organizations minimize risk while modernizing IT to support compute-intensive, data-centric applications?  Is long-term value more important than short-term savings when upgrading IT hardware?  What costs (CapEx or OpEx) matter more to organizations?  Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) recently performed research to identify what matters to IT as on-premises hardware evolves.


While capital expense is always a concern when considering a major technology upgrade, a reduction in ongoing operating expenses driven by the upgrade is even more important. That’s what this study says.

And that’s what a recent NASA study says.


ESG research found that consistency and higher levels of operational efficiency matter the most when measuring the success of an evolving on-premises hardware solution.  When cost is a consideration, OpEx matters more than CapEx.  And vendor consistency improves the likelihood of success when modernizing your technology.

It’s not just Intel and ESG—here’s what a recent Nor-Tech client had to say about the benefits of upgrading from a workstation to a cluster:

“With a workstation it could take up to 2-1/2 days to create and build a single part, I knew a cluster would be much faster. In this business, it’s all about how quickly we respond to customers.”

“We thought about purchasing four workstations, but we quickly realized it just wouldn’t be a cost-effective approach. We wanted to move computations to a cluster so that it would be much more efficient.”

Upgrade Your IT Hardware–It’s Time

Maximize Technology Upgrade Investments with Leading-Edge Job Schedulers

With intelligent job schedulers fully leveraged by Nor-Tech’s outstanding engineering team, hardware, software and associated licenses can be maintained at nearly 100% utilization around the clock.  The scheduler will also report underutilization of licenses and identify opportunities to reduce the license count.


The bottom line is:

“If you need a machine and don’t buy it, you have paid for it and don’t have it.”
