Durham, NC, June 13, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Running databases on legacy servers with outdated drives can slow a business down, especially during times of peak traffic. A newer Dell EMC server cluster based on VMware vSAN and configured with Toshiba PX05S solid-state drives (SSDs) could increase the number of orders processed per minute, deliver faster response times, and support more virtual machines (VMs) than a legacy vSAN cluster, helping businesses more effectively meet customer demand.
In hands-on testing, PT ran a transactional database workload on a Dell EMC PowerEdge R740xd cluster using VMware vSAN and Toshiba PX05S SAS SSDs, as well as a legacy PowerEdge R730 vSAN cluster configured with hard disk drives (HDDs) and SATA SSDs. According to the report, “a PowerEdge R740xd server configured with Toshiba PX05S SAS SSDs and VMware vSAN supported 33 percent more VMs than the legacy solution. This greater capacity translated into 80 percent more orders per minute (OPM) compared to the legacy solution.” The newer solution with Toshiba SSDs also offered lower write and read response times. With improved transactional database performance, the new Toshiba-Dell EMC solution could help organizations support a growing customer base and set themselves up for long-term success.
