The 2U, two-socket PowerEdge R740 delivered more transactions per minute than an older HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9
Holding on to data center hardware for too long can put your business at a disadvantage, burdening your IT admins with many aging servers that begin to need extra maintenance, all while performing at a level far below their modern counterparts, making inefficient use of data center space.
By upgrading to the Dell EMC™ PowerEdge™ R740 rack server with 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, your business could consolidate multiple older servers and take advantage of significant performance and management benefits. In fact, in the PT data center, we found that the Dell EMC PowerEdge R740 handled over 2.6 times the workload transactions against an Oracle Database using the TPC-C-like benchmark from HammerDB compared to a four-year-old HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9.
Moving to a Dell EMC PowerEdge R740 platform with 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors can free your business from the burdens of outdated hardware, setting you up for what comes next.
