3. A one processor AMD EPYC 7702P powered server solution has an estimated 56% lower 3-yr virtualization TCO than a with two processor Intel Gold 6250 server solution to deliver 320 VMs. Estimates based on AMD Server Virtualization TCO (total cost of ownership) Estimator tool v5.5, comparing the AMD EPYC™ and Intel® Xeon® server solutions required to deliver 320 total virtual machines (VM), requiring 1 core and 8GB of memory per VM, with a minimum total solution memory requirement of 2.56 TB of memory. The analysis includes both hardware and virtualization software components. For 320 VMs and 1 core per VM, the Intel _Gold_6250 processor requires 20 - 2P servers. The AMD EPYC_7702P solution requires 5 - 1P servers. Virtualization software pricing as of October 2019.
