SQL Transaction Processing Price-Performance Testing on Virtual Machines


The fundamental underpinning of an organization is its transactions. It must do them well, with integrity and performance. Not only has transaction volume soared of late, but the level of granularity in the transaction details has also reached new heights. Fast transactions greatly improve the efficiency of a high-volume business. Performance is incredibly important. Any network latency, delays in the database, API/microservices calls, and other processes need to be eliminated. There are a variety of databases available to the transactional application. Ideally, any database would have the required capabilities.

This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together GigaOm analyst William McKnight and special guests from Microsoft, Microsoft Senior Program Manager, Azure SQL VM, Mine Tokus, and Senior Product Marketing Manager Matthew Burrows to discuss the results from a GigaOm Analytic Field Test derived from the industry-standard TPC Benchmark™ E (TPC-E) to compare two cloud SQL Server offerings:

  • Microsoft SQL Server on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances and Microsoft SQL Server on Azure Virtual Machines (VM).
  • Both are installations of Microsoft SQL Server and we tested on both Windows Server OS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OS.
  • However, there are some distinct differences in the two infrastructure offerings that impact performance.

The results are valuable to all operational functions of an organization such as human resource management, production planning, material management, financial supply chain management, sales and distribution, financial accounting and controlling, plant maintenance, and quality management.
