New generation technology can be expected to improve performance. There are times, however, when multiple technology advances can combine to provide an outsized advantage. Such is the case when the Dell PowerEdge R760 Rack Server is combined with the Broadcom Emulex LPe36002 64G Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter.
Dell commissioned Tolly to benchmark the analytics workload performance of the Broadcom Emulex LPe36002 64G Fibre Channel dual-port host bus adapter (HBA) running in the Dell PowerEdge R760 Rack Server. Specifically, this report will focus on illustrating two points: 1) Improved database analytic performance due to the increased input/output (I/O) throughput of 64GFC, 2) Increased application performance when paired with PCIe 4.0/5.0 and the dual-port 64GFC HBA.
Tests showed that the new R760 Intel Eagle Stream-based platform's increased CPU power and PCIe 5.0 bus work in conjunction with the Broadcom 64GFC dual-port adapter to deliver line rate, 64G throughput that cannot be matched by earlier generation technology.Login Sign-up
