In hands-on testing, PT found that the Dell EMC PowerEdge R940 with 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors was able to perform the Oracle Database work of over three legacy servers while reducing rack space.
Durham, NC, August 30, 2019 –(PR.com)– Businesses that haven’t upgraded their data center hardware in several years may be considering the benefits of consolidating their old servers onto fewer, current-generation servers. Principled Technologies (PT) tested the Oracle Database performance of a new, four-socket, 3U Dell EMC PowerEdge R940 rack server with 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and compared it to the performance of a legacy four-socket, 4U Dell PowerEdge R920 server.
According to the report, “We found that the Dell EMC PowerEdge R940 with 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors handled over 3.14 times the workload transactions per minute (TPM) of an Oracle Database using the TPC-C-like HammerDB benchmark compared to a legacy Dell PowerEdge R920. This large Oracle Database performance increase means that a single Dell EMC PowerEdge R940 could replace three of these 4U legacy servers, or 12U of servers, in just 3U of rack space, reducing the number of servers you must store, power, license, and manage and freeing up significant data center space.”
