Mathis Analytics and SkyMe Airlines are fictional entities that we at Principled Technologies (PT) have created as part of this interactive experience for tech decision-makers, researchers, buyers, and anyone interested in how technology can affect businesses. We did this to help our client, Dell Technologies, show the benefits of upgrading to AMD processor-based Dell PowerEdge servers.

While Mathis Analytics is fictional, the infrastructure decisions they tackle are real ones that many companies face. The Mathis Analytics team, like many people involved in IT, will draw on a PT report that shows the results of hands-on testing we conducted in our data center. This testing showed that an on-prem Tanzu cluster of Dell PowerEdge R7525 servers with 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors could complete a machine learning training task faster than an AWS EKS cluster with c5.12x instances. It could also handle more MongoDB throughput and sustain more VM density than a legacy cluster. You can find more details—and even more results—in our report at https://facts.pt/Axmmz8G.
