Business Intelligence with Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-8800/4800 v4 Product Families

Bring your business’s best ideas to life by transforming big data and real-time analytics into new business opportunities while ensuring the reliability and uptime of the most business-critical services with the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800/4800 v4 product families.

Business Intelligence (BI) or decision support contains two primary types of workloads: Data warehousing/data mart tools used to create and run data warehouses and data marts, and data analysis/data mining tools used to access data warehouses for online analytical processing (OLAP), data mining, data visualization, Web query tools, and so on.

Business Analytics with SAP* BW-AML

SAP* BW Advanced Mixed Load (BW-AML) represents typical business warehouse customers looking for near real-time data analysis crucial to timely decision making. Phase 1 measures advanced query navigation steps per hour of large volumes of data. Phase 2 measures the runtimes of single queries and multi-level data load scenarios. Scale factors range from two billion (2B) to 16 billion records. See more at http://sapinsider.wispubs.com/Assets/Articles/2016/April/SPI-Take-SAP-Business-Warehouse-Benchmarking-to-the-Next-Level

Business Intelligence Queries with TPC Benchmark* H

The TPC-H* benchmark illustrates decision support systems that examine large volumes of data, execute queries with a high degree of complexity, and give answers to critical business questions.

The performance metric reported by TPC-H is called the TPC-H Composite Query-per-Hour Performance Metric (QphH@Size), and reflects multiple aspects of the capability of the system to process queries, including the selected database size against which the queries are executed, the query processing power when queries are submitted by a single stream, and the query throughput when queries are submitted by multiple concurrent users.

High-Speed Analytics using STAC-M3* (Shasta Suite) with Kx Systems kdb+*

The STAC-M3* Benchmark is an industry standard benchmark that measures high-speed analytics on time series data, such as tick-by-tick market data (aka "tick database" stacks). This analytical approach is crucial to many trading functions, from algorithm development to risk management. Recent trends like the growth and sophistication of automated trading and the proliferation of new regulations place a premium on technology that can accelerate the analysis of time-series data. The specifications are agnostic to architecture, and the Shasta Suite allows pre-loading of the Kx Systems kdb+ database directly into memory.

Product and Performance Information

1

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, go to www.intel.com/benchmarks.

2

Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.

3

Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/uk/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

4

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel.

Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel® microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel® microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product user and reference guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
