With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.

"Purchasers of enterprise storage have historically dealt with an upgrade cycle that was expensive, disruptive, inherently risky, and time-consuming and occurred roughly every three to five years. In 2015, Pure Storage challenged customer preconceptions about the enterprise storage upgrade cycle with the announcement of its Evergreen Storage. And Pure has continued to enhance Evergreen Storage over the years with new features that have increased its already extremely high customer experience performance.
This IDC white paper assesses the impact Evergreen Storage has had on the enterprise storage industry and discusses the technical, financial, and business implications of the program from a customer point of view."
While many OEMs are aware of new technologies to make machines more energy-efficient, they are reluctant to make changes due to the perception that it will make their machines more expensive to sell. The constraints of cost reduction, usage of resources and energy reduction are becoming key drivers in the industry as consumers require manufacturers to be more “green”. This paper demonstrates how incorporating sustainable design can add value to their machines and differentiate OEMs from the competition.
