A single Dell EMC PowerEdge R740xd powered by Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors did the data warehouse work of up to eight legacy servers
Your company is collecting more data than ever before; your customers’ pain points, habits, and desires all flow in and out of your business each second. To mine the most value from that data, and to get the answers you need at a competitive speed, you need to employ server solutions powerful enough to handle complex analytics software.
In the Principled Technologies datacenter, we compared a legacy Dell EMC™ PowerEdge™ R720xd, powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor, to the new PowerEdge R740xd (powered by Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors) in three storage configurations: with basic hard drives, with SATA SSDs, and with NVMe SSDs. We measured the time it took each server to complete a set of database warehouse queries, and found that the PowerEdge R740xd was more powerful after each storage upgrade. In fact, our results suggest you could replace many legacy servers with fewer of the PowerEdge R740xd, powered by Intel® Xeon® processor Scalable family.
With faster query times, your business could make important decisions sooner—decisions that could mean the difference between staying ahead of the competition and losing out.
