HPE slashes Windows costs

and in the real world we have been running AMD Proliant servers since 2012 and with Windows since 2018. We have bought Intel but they just dont perform as well and dont give the bang for buck long term the Epyc processors have given us.

Core count licensing costs has always been an issue when selecting the processor which is the same for Intel. The HPE DL385 servers have proven to be such a beast performance wise that Intel isnt even a consideration for our next server cluster.
