Principled Technologies Finds That Amazon EC2 r5b.

8xlarge Instances Deliver

Better Performance for OLTP Workloads at a Lower Cost Than Microsoft
Azure E64_32s_v4 VMs

A new report shows that R5b instances from Amazon EC2 could offer a balance of performance and
cost that helps organizations.

Durham, NC, March 01, 2021 --(PR.com)-- For many organizations looking to use cloud computing,
performance is likely a priority. For high-performance databases, however, that could come at a hefty
price. In Principled Technologies (PT) testing, an Amazon EC2 r5b.8xlarge instance processed twice the
SQL Server database transactions compared to a Microsoft Azure E64_32s_v4 virtual machine. More
database transactions could mean more revenue from ecommerce applications, more users for an
enterprise resource planning application, or reduced costs due to consolidated workloads.

PT also found that the on-demand, license-included Amazon EC2 R5b instance and its Elastic Block
Storage (EBS) General Purpose SSD (gp2) volumes cost less than the on-demand, license-included Azure
VM and its accompanying storage. Additionally, the EC2 R5b instance and storage that PT tested could
cost offer a lower price-per-performance than the Azure VM and storage that PT tested if the Azure VM
achieved the same level of performance. According to the PT report, “The price for 1,000 NOPM [new
orders per minute] from the EC2 instance was $17 USD lower than the price for 1,000 NOPM from the
Azure VM” in a 730-hour usage scenario. The report goes on to say that with that cost difference, “an
organization could pay as much as 62 percent less for the EC2 R5b instance...than the Azure VM
achieving comparable NOPM performance.”
