Get Better Value with Alibaba G7 Instances Featuring 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors

If you use the cloud to host your WordPress websites, you seek compute-intensive instances that will support more web traffic and provide a better experience for your customers and internal users. Selecting instances with the right processor can help you get the greatest return on your cloud investment.

In WordPress tests comparing three sizes of Alibaba instances (see Figure 1), new Alibaba G7 Instances enabled by 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors delivered up to 1.25x the number of requests per second of G6 instances with 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, while also delivering greater performance per dollar. For your website hosting needs, choose new G7 Instances enabled by 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.

The G7 instances featuring 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors not only handled 1.25x the requests per second of G6 instances, but they also delivered better value than G6 instances with the performance gains outweighing the small cost increases. When you select G7 instances that do more database work per instance, you can support the needs of your ecommerce users with fewer cloud instances, which is a boon to your bottom line.

In addition to performance, cost is an important consideration when shopping for cloud instances. While new technology often comes at a slightly higher price, the performance it delivers can more than offset the increase. The new G7 instances with 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors cost no more than 1.14x as much as the older G6 instances, yet they provide up to 1.25x the performance. This means that you can get more WordPress performance for your money.

Based on these comparisons, companies that host WordPress databases in the cloud could better position themselves both to meet performance goals and stay within budget if they chose compute-intensive Alibaba G7 instances enabled by 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors rather than Alibaba G6 instances with 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.
