Web Services on Ampere Processors
High performance and power-efficient processors for running web services in the cloud
Modern day web services are built using cloud-native applications and implemented using containerized micro services. These services make use of the flexibility, scalability, and resilience of cloud native processors such as the Ampere Altra and Altra Max to provide energy and cost efficient compute capacity without compromising on performance.
The Ampere® Altra® processor family is ideal for running web services workloads:
Key Benefits Of Ampere Altra Max vs Legacy x86
Lower response times: P99 latency shows Ampere Altra Max systems have much lower response times under maximum utilization
Higher throughput : Ampere Altra Max systems deliver higher throughput measured under SLA
Predictable performance: More uniform response times leading to better user experience
Higher power efficiency: Half the power consumption while delivering comparable throughput
Web service-Social Network single-node tests were performed on bare metal single socket Ampere Altra Max, Intel Icelake 8380 and AMD Milan 7763 servers using a client workload that simulates multiple simultaneous connections. Web Service SocialNetwork 3-node cluster tests were performed on Bare Metal Single socket Ampere Altra Max and Intel IceLake 6342 servers. WordPress Blog site performance testing was done with Ampere Altra , Intel IceLake , AMD Milan Virtual Machines with 4 vCPUs. System configurations, components, software versions, and testing environments that differ from those used in Ampere’s tests may result in different measurements than those obtained by Ampere.
