PowerEdge Plus AMD EPYC Equals Better Server Performance in Half the Density, at Half the Cost
- April 10, 2019
Dell EMC PowerEdge R6415 achieves #1 results on TPCx-HS Benchmarks for 1-TB and 10-TB scale factor
It used to be said that data runs the world. They were wrong! Data drives insights and insights are what matter. However, getting to these insights is hard, time-consuming and expensive. So much so that companies are turning to trusted hardware vendors to find the right tools and solutions to accomplish this very fundamental task. But figuring out which tools you need to uncover those hidden gems can be a challenge. What do most customers do to evaluate the right platform for their projects? They look to industry-standard benchmarks for guidance.
One such benchmark, TPCx-HS, provides guidance related to big data analytics by stressing both hardware and software stacks, including the execution engine (MapReduce or Apache Spark™) and Hadoop® Filesystem API compatible layers. It provides a vendor-neutral evaluation of both a product’s performance and price-performance ratio, thus helping customers make the right choice for their large cluster, data analysis projects.
The Dell EMC PowerEdge R6415 is a single-socket dense server that offers the right feature set for data analysis, as evidenced by its test results in the TPCx-HS benchmark.
As highlighted above, when compared to the Cisco UCS C240 M5 2U/2 socket servers, the PowerEdge R6415 single socket platform has better price/performance:
Here’s a comparison of the configurations used in this benchmark for the 1TB Scale Factor:
1-TB Scale Factor
The results speak for themselves. The single-socket PowerEdge R6415 is a great solution for Apache Hadoop®-based, big data environments without unnecessary and extra costs. Similarly, this cost-effective server is also ideal for virtualization, scale-out and software-defined storage, bringing high-density computing to the data center.
The PowerEdge R6415 delivers the following high-level key server functionalities:
