Durham, NC, August 03, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Legacy servers and older software can lag when it comes to order processing and data analysis. Replacing a legacy solution with new Dell EMC PowerEdge R740xd servers running Microsoft SQL Server 2017 Standard and Windows Server 2016 could help businesses support more online customers and reach data insights quicker.
In hands-on testing, Principled Technologies ran transactional database and data warehouse workloads on a Dell EMC PowerEdge R740xd server running Microsoft SQL Server 2017 Standard and Windows Server 2016, as well as a legacy server using SQL Server 2008 R2. According to the executive summary of the two reports, “The new Dell EMC PowerEdge R740xd server with Microsoft SQL Server 2017 delivered markedly better transactional database performance than the legacy solution, processing 6.7 times as many orders per minute and lowering average application latencies by 88 percent. Business analytics performance also improved: the updated Microsoft-Dell EMC solution completed a query set in 90 percent less time and decreased drive read latency by 99 percent.”
With faster query times, businesses could reach data insights quicker. And with the ability to support nearly 7 times as many customers with the same number of servers as they used in their legacy solution, businesses could choose to use fewer servers to process just as many orders, thus reducing datacenter costs, or expand their capacity to serve more customers, helping their business grow.
