MySQL databases are crucial for many industries, especially ecommerce. Choosing hardware that performs well under online transaction processing (OLTP) workloads is important for daily business performance. It is also important to consider cost when evaluating hardware for purchase.

Our latest OLTP MySQL workload testing compared two four-server vSAN clusters —one with 64-core 3rd Gen AMD EPYC 7763 processors and one with 40-core 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Platinum 8380 processors. In our hands-on testing, we found the solution with AMD EPYC 7763 processors offered a better value due to performance advantages and hardware and support savings. Specifically, the AMD EPYC processor-based servers we tested cost 33 percent less than the servers with Intel Xeon Scalable processors, which contributed to the AMD EPYC processor-based solution processing 66 percent more transactions per minute per dollar.

Choosing AMD EPYC processors could help you save on the expensive costs of hardware and deliver better performance for each dollar you spend. Find out the particulars in the report.
