Use Cases

Spotlight on Performance

Running your database under a heavy load isn’t just a test – it’s a real-world scenario that can cause disruption to your business if your infrastructure can’t handle the pressure. Scalability Experts, a triple Gold Microsoft Partner, performed SQL Server load tests on FlexPod using a real-world workload from Iforium, one of the UK’s leading online gaming companies. When compared with Scalability Experts’ SQL Server testing norms and Iforium’s prior workload experience, the test results confirmed:

  • 208% faster SQL Server transaction response times
  • 250% faster page response times
  • Sequentially linear scalability
  • 3x performance boost
