Durham, NC, October 08, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Companies rely on transactional database applications to keep business running in a variety of areas: customer management, inventory tracking, human resources, and more. As the volume of information in these systems explodes, the importance of speedy, high-performing storage grows as well. However, companies don’t always realize the implications of failing to refresh gear that uses older technologies.
Principled Technologies conducted a study to quantify the improvements, in terms of raw performance and response time, a company could realize when replacing an older server configured with SATA SSDs with a new Dell EMC PowerEdge R740xd configured with HGST Ultrastar SS300 SAS SSDs.
To see how the two solutions compared, they created VMs running Oracle databases on each server and ran a tool that generates a heavy workload on these databases and uses a performance metric of input/output operations per second (IOPS).
As the report states, “The Dell EMC PowerEdge R740xd server with HGST Ultrastar SS300 SAS SSDs delivered 2.6 times the total IOPS of the Dell EMC PowerEdge R730xd server with SATA SSDs. Regardless of the activities your users are performing, this differential means you can support more of them with the Dell EMC and HGST solution.”
