SSDs powered by Intel Xeon E5-2640 v2 improves TPM 24x

A recent performance test conducted by Principled Technologies (PT) has found that Intel Xeon processor-based Solid State Drives (SSDs) has yielded better performance servers than those powered by hard disk drives (HDDs).

The new server powered by Intel processor E5-2640 v2 delivered more than 24 times as many transactions per minute (TPM), handled much better I/O and delivered much better latency, PT said

E5-2640 v2, a part of Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v2 product family, provides one and a half times the core and cache than previous generation of Intel Xeon processors. It also provides faster memory, says Intel.

The test results are significant when comparing the database application performance in various business scenarios. SQL servers running HDDs are found to consume longer time to perform tasks. When PT compared the SSD servers with the traditional HDD models, there has been significant improvement in database TPM (24 times)

Read and write latency test showed that the read latency of the storage server powered by Intel processor was less than 1 percent of that of the older server and the write latency was less than half a percent.
