In our data center, we ran an online transactional processing (OLTP) database workload on a Dell EMC™ PowerEdge™ R6525 server cluster in two configurations—one with 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ 7543 processors and one with 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ 7532 processors. Each cluster ran Microsoft Hyper-V and hosted Microsoft SQL Server 2019 virtual machines.
We found that the Dell EMC PowerEdge cluster with the 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors achieved 15.6 percent more OPM than the cluster with the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors. When we compared the cost for hardware plus support for the two clusters, we found that they were the same price, meaning that your organization could get better performance without paying more for it.
