Abstract

Management of costs on data is assuming significance with data growth. As information technology (IT) costs are spread in firms, thin and complex, perceptions of costs on data are hazy. Such haze become mist when cost basis for the data costs are different for service provider and service consumer. Service consumers are offered data services on the basis of per GB/ TB data stored, moved, retrieved or processed. While data center costing is commonly based on the amount of electricity requirement like 10 MW data center. Range of costs estimates for data center in terms of $ per TB per month is observed irrationally high, while range of data center services prices are observed in rationally narrow range of TB per month.
