Principled Technologies Releases Study Comparing the Apache Cassandra Performance of Clusters Based on AMD EPYC 7601 Processors and Previous-Generation Intel Processors

Durham, NC, December 21, 2017 –(– Private clouds that run demanding NoSQL applications such as Apache Cassandra need hardware that can provide strong performance. Principled Technologies (PT) tested a cluster based on AMD EPYC 7601 processors, and found that it could deliver up to 50 percent more operations per second compared to an Intel Xeon E5-2699 v4 processor-powered cluster when running Apache Cassandra workloads.

According to the report, “Compared to the Intel solution, the AMD solution handled significantly more Cassandra write operations per second on the same number of servers, which could allow for faster updates and shorter data load times.”
