The test data at SAP contains a result for a Dell machine from 6 days later than HP’s result. That test was made with basically the same configuration as the ProLiant but with Microsoft OS and db server. That test outperformed the mentioned HP result with around 1000 SAPS. My question is would the DL 560 with Microsoft software perform better than the Dell machine? Do you have the intention to test the same hardware with Microsoft software?
