Organizations typically produce data from a wide variety of sources, but all that data shares one characteristic: it needs analysis. For example, a manufacturing company’s sensors and production equipment produce massive amounts of different types of data. Such companies can use a MongoDB database to unify and analyze the data.

We tested two on-premises VMware vSAN clusters powered by different processors to see which delivered better MongoDB database performance. In our hands-on tests, we found that a VMware vSphere 7.0 Update 3d cluster of four dual-socket servers powered by 3rd Gen AMD EPYC 75F3 processors cost less and processed more operations per second per dollar than a cluster of comparably configured servers with 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Platinum 8380 processors.

From performance to cost, our report tells the full story.
