Strong server performance is essential to companies running Oracle Database. The new Dell PowerEdge R930 provided strong performance with 22 SAS HDDs, but this performance improved when we replaced all of the drives with SAS solid-state drives. It improved further when we used a mix of HDDs and SDDs along with a caching solution. We saw the greatest performance boost when we used eight Samsung-powered NVMe PCIe SSDs. The upgraded configurations of the Dell PowerEdge R930 with Samsung-powered NVMe PCIe SSDs delivered up to 13.9 times the database performance of the all-HDD configuration. This makes the new Dell PowerEdge R930 a powerful platform with scalable storage options that can potentially translate into significant service improvements for your business and your customers, which helps in maximizing ROI.
