Enjoy Stronger Performance with Ddsv4 VMs Featuring 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors
For companies that use virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to provide computing to their employees, a speedy experience is important. Productivity can suffer and frustration can rise when workers must wait for a sluggish system to respond. If your company is planning to use a public cloud solution to host a VDI implementation, you should understand that performance can differ depending on the virtual machine you choose. The Microsoft Azure Ddsv4-series VMs enabled by 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors can outperform Dasv4 VMs enabled by 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors.
In VDI tests of these two series of Microsoft Azure VMs, Ddsv4 VMs enabled by 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors delivered 1.18x the overall performance on a range of office activities. That advantage can help your employees perform their work more quickly.
Boost Employee Productivity on Office Tasks
Login Enterprise is a benchmarking tool that simulates workers in a VDI environment performing different office tasks. Testing examined 32 users carrying out activities in the following Microsoft applications: Teams, Edge, Outlook, Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.
As the table on the following page shows, by choosing 16-vCPU Ddsv4 VMs enabled by 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors over 16-vCPU Dasv4 VMs enabled by 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors, you could enable your employees to perform tasks across these applications up to 1.54x as quickly. Taking into account all of the activities Login Enterprise tested, the overall Geomean times win was 1.18.
Tests showed that the 16-vCPU Microsoft Azure Ddsv4 VMs enabled by 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors had faster overall task completion versus same sized Dasv4 VMs enabled by 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors. Choosing Intel D16ds_v4 processors provides a better experience and can help your employees wait less and be more efficient.
