VMmark Score Showcases AMD Opteron Processor as the “King of Capacity Systems”


Capability and capacity systems are the yin and yang of the server world. Capability systems are designed for a single type of workload and often have a focus on single thread performance. In contrast, capacity systems are workhorses, hosting a variety of different jobs and workloads simultaneously and running a range of tasks competently and efficiently. As virtualization becomes pervasive in Data Centers, capacity computing is taking over as the norm. Virtualized environments by nature are richly threaded with a physical server hosting multiple operating systems and simultaneously executing a broad spectrum of applications.

Capacity computing is one of the strengths of the AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series processor. HP recently posted the highest VMmark 2.1 score ever achieved using a cluster of 16 ProLiant BL465c Gen8 blades running AMD Opteron™ 6200 Series processors.  VMware® VMmark is a multi-server benchmark that measures the platform performance and scalability of virtualized environments. The newly posted score of 59.9 @ 62 tiles is the first score ever posted for a 16 blade cluster and translates into 496 virtual machines (VMs) per cluster or an average of 31 VMs per blade. This score is 1.4 times as high and reflects solid scalability with 1.72  times as many VMs as the nearest posted by  a cluster of  eight Cisco UCS B200 M3 blades running Intel Xeon E5 2600 Series processors. More details are available on the HP performance brief “HP ProLiant BL465c Gen8 Server Blade achieves #1 worldwide result on the VMmark benchmark”
