Databases across the globe house information necessary for today’s world to function. Whether it is an e-commerce company making online transactions, an organization that supports media streaming, or a firm mining data for insights, these companies need scalable, high performance solutions for processing these massive amounts of data.

Over three studies, we tested multiple series of Microsoft Azure VMs powered by different processors. Each of the studies focused on a specific database system: Microsoft SQL, PostgreSQL, and Apache Cassandra. We found, in each study, that Microsoft Azure Lsv3-series VMs featuring 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors outperformed the other VMs we tested.
