    I'm writing an essay about maintaining servers on a corporate level...

    I was just curious for any of those working in big corporate companies, approximately how much does it cost monthly to maintain servers?

    so you consider power and bandwidth and space? then no one can answer your question. Space costs are dependent on where the servers are. Bandwidth varies too greatly. Even power requirements vary.

    we run 74 servers... but there are only 4 of us (used to be 5). So that's not large in my book.

    This is a horrible question. What kind of apps are they serving? How many clients are they serving? :ugh:

    We've got hundreds of physical servers, hundreds more virtual servers. We've got mainframes. We've got redundant data centers. Are JetDirect boxes servers? Are NAS devices?
