Performance results with HPE-ATX (patent pending) on the Superdome X with Gen9 using the Hammer DB OLTP multi-tenant workload and were achieved with one tenant totaling 144 users (4P), two tenants totaling 288 users (8P) and four tenants totaling 576 users (16P) for a 1-to-1 mapping of users to logical CPUs. Configurations that are over-subscribed may show less performance gain. Results as of April, 2016.
