Principled Technologies Releases Study Comparing Google Cloud C3 High CPU Instances
Durham, NC, September 09, 2023 — Cloud instance options are plentiful, which can make finding an instance that delivers top performance difficult. Principled Technologies (PT) tested the SQL Server database performance of Google Cloud C3 high CPU instances with 4th-Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and older N2 instances using an online transaction processing (OLTP) workload.
According to the report, “In our tests, the C3 high CPU instances were able to handle significantly more new orders per minute (NOPM) than similarly configured N2 high CPU instances with previous-gen processors. The ability to handle more NOPM on C3 high CPU instances means that your organization could support more customers, reduce bottlenecks during peak times that cause customers to wait, or even save money by needing fewer instances to support your user base.”
