Organizations looking to use managed cloud instances for SQL Server databases seek a balance of strong performance and value. Using online order processing and analytics workloads, Principled Technologies (PT) compared three sets of instances from two managed cloud instance services: Azure SQL Managed Instance and Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) for SQL Server. Azure SQL Managed Instances used the business-critical service tier with premium-series hardware, and Amazon RDS used AWS R5b and M6i instances.
According to the report, “Across those three sets of instances using three common SQL Server database workloads—two for online transaction processing and one for data analysis—Azure SQL Managed Instance significantly outperformed Amazon RDS. Offering between double and five times the performance depending on the workload, the three SQL Managed Instances we tested also offered better overall value, reducing price/performance by as much as 90.3 percent.”
