vSphere 6.7 Update 3 Supports AMD EPYC™ Generation 2 Processors, VMmark Showcases Its Leadership Performance

Two leadership VMmark benchmark results have been published with AMD EPYC™ Generation 2 processors running VMware vSphere 6.7 Update 3 on a two-node two-socket cluster and a four-node cluster. VMware worked closely with AMD to enable support for AMD EPYC™ Generation 2 in the VMware vSphere 6.7 U3 release.

The VMmark benchmark is a free tool used by hardware vendors and others to measure the performance, scalability, and power consumption of virtualization platforms and has become the standard by which the performance of virtualization platforms is evaluated.

The new AMD EPYC™ Generation 2 performance results can be found here and here.

  1. Rebecca, thank you for this piece. I am very interested in the new EPYC 2 processors and their potential on VMware, but am concerned about how well they will co-exist in a mixed environment that has been to date exclusively Intel x86 based. Are you able to point me towards any research or data on this aspect?
