Enabling Two Security Features on 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ Processors Minimally Affected OLTP Performance

Failing to properly secure your servers could result in catastrophic damages and a loss of customer trust should attackers gain improper access. Still, no one wants to implement security features that are a detriment to business performance in the short term. 

Principled Technologies compared the online transaction processing performance of an AMD EPYC™ 7543 processor-powered server with and without AMD Secure Memory Encryption and Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Encrypted State enabled. They found that using these security features resulted in just a 1.7 percent reduction in the server’s average order-processing rate, meaning that performance was barely affected.

If your business is seeking to shore up its server security without paying a large performance tax, consider using AMD SEV-ES and Secure Memory Encryption on Dell EMC PowerEdge R6525 servers with AMD EPYC™ 7543 processors. Download the Principled Technologies report now to learn more.
