Pricing History – Storage and Backup


At least once a year (usually in the fall), the pricing is updated to align with the current actual costs that OIT is paying for each type of storage.  As the cost/Gb OIT pays its vendors for storage each year continually declines, so does the pricing that OIT charges.  The history of this can be seen at at the following link.  The pricing history for the past 7 years can be found in the following table (all values in $/Gb/Yr and are the values without any TSM backups included).

*Pricing Updated 11/1/2017

Pricing is adjusted each year based on the current cost of the on the floor storage.  Based on configuration changes, timing of refreshes, etc., the price drop year over year may be more or less, but as with industry standards, we have always at minimum been able to maintain the current price, and more often than not lower it.
