Benchmarking Databricks on Intel® Processors

As enterprises move more artificial intelligence (AI) workloads to cloud platforms such as Microsoft Azure, knowing what’s powering those workloads becomes crucial. This solution brief describes how Azure Databricks, a unified data-analytics platform, can help enterprises manage more data, and why it is important to run Databricks workloads on Intel hardware. The solution brief then compares Azure Databricks data-pipeline performance between two generations of Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors.
