Lower Hardware and Software Costs with the Dell PowerEdge R7515


If your company is running important business applications in VMware vSAN clusters of servers that are several years old, chances are good that you’re considering upgrading to newer hardware. Our testing demonstrated that our clusters of single-socket Dell PowerEdge R7515 servers and clusters of dual-socket HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 servers could both improve upon the database performance of a legacy cluster with five-year-old servers by more than 50%, with the Dell cluster achieving 93.4% of the performance of the HPE cluster.

Due to its lower socket and core counts, the Dell PowerEdge R7515 cluster we tested would require fewer software licenses than the HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 cluster. This, along with its lower purchase price, adds up to savings of $268,957.71 over four years. Taking costs and performance together, the Dell cluster achieved 9.6% more OPM per dollar than the HPE cluster.


A single-socket Dell EMC PowerEdge R7515 solution delivered better value on a transactional database use case than a dual-socket HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen10 solution. *For more details on testing, click here.
