The customer value of server benchmarking
You want to keep competitive with the market and what your customers need, and performance benchmarking supports that. Server benchmarking shows the objective performance measurement of the product, and can be used as a comparison to similar products. Benchmarking is also often useful for sizing in purchase planning. Results can help showcase your company’s product qualities and total cost of ownership.
HPE runs many types of benchmarks to evaluate its servers. The diverse categories of performance and efficiency indicators leads to results that show you:
- How fast a system can complete any action in a certain time period. Improving performance will allow your business to stay competitive in the market.
- Scalability that specifies how a system can handle load increases without impacting performance. Better performance ensures that a system is versatile enough to handle low and high loads.
- Performance, scalability, and power consumption of virtualization solutions.
- Energy efficiency that calculates power management.
- Competitive results that quantify the comparison of a business to others.
- Cost efficiency
- Showing strengths and weaknesses of your business servers.
- Scalability revenues
The listed measurements are important as they can show how your business is efficient, competitive, and able to grow without any adverse effects. A scalable system can adapt to your company’s growth and provide longevity of your purchase. This is especially important for small- and medium-sized businesses. Your organization wants to continue to remain competitive in today’s uncertain market. You need to be confident that your current or planned server installations offer superior performance.
The latest Intel leader board contains a plethora of benchmarks that includes a wide variety of performance, scalability, and energy efficiency metrics. The following are the benchmarks used to attain world leadership for HPE servers on the Intel leader board:
