Durham, NC, September 13, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- For companies that run OLTP database workloads and are thinking about replacing older hardware, good deals on current-generation servers are available. But, should they choose single-socket servers powered by AMD EPYC 7551P processors or dual-socket servers powered by Intel Xeon Gold 6130 processors? The IT professionals at PT found that, for companies with data centers using VMware vSphere Enterprise Plus, choosing the single-processor AMD EPYC solution could result in similar OLTP database performance as the dual-processor Intel Xeon solution at half the licensing cost.
According to the report, “By selecting the AMD EPYC 7551P processor-powered single-socket Dell EMC PowerEdge R7415, however, your company could get similar database performance at half the VMware vSphere licensing costs of an Intel Xeon Gold 6130 processor-powered dual-socket Supermicro SuperServer 2029U. The single-socket AMD solution also used less power under load and while idle, making it a compelling choice for companies looking to minimize their operating expenses.”
