Time to update the number of cores for Alteryx Server in initial package ?

Hello all,

This may be a little controversial. As of today, when you buy an Alteryx Server, the basic package covers up to 4 cores :
https://community.alteryx.com/t5/Alteryx-Server-Knowledge-Base/How-Alteryx-defines-cores-for-licensi...

I have always known that. But these last years, the technology, the world has evolved. Especially the number of cores in a server. As an example, AMD Epyc CPU for server begin at 8 cores :

So the idea is to update the number of cores in initial package for 8 or even 16 cores. It would :
-make Alteryx more competitive
-cost only very few money
-end some user frustration

Moreover, Alteryx Server Additional Capacity license should be 4 cores.

Best regards,

Simon

Hello,

A little update : Inel new generation also begins at 8 cores. So it really does not make sense to begin Alteryx Server at 4 cores

"I remember when you could only buy cars with 8 cylinders!"

 

As others have said in this thread, it's time to evolve. Companies are not buying two or four core servers to save money.

AMD will launch an EPYC TURIN with 256 cores.. 256 cores... in other terms, 64 times the 4 cores in the initial package.

New Intel Xeon scalable begin at 6 cores.

Please, can we have some news on this topic ? It's really hard to sell a 4-cores only licensing package while the server is itself a 6 or 8 cores...

Hey @KylieF since @CristonS  has retired, are there any updates on Alteryx updating the CORE license #s. 

The model hasn't changed in over 10 years, yet the prices are continuing to go up

601 days since this idea was submitted. 511 days since the status changed to "under review". Nothing has changed since. Does anyone at Alteryx know this idea exists?

@TheCoffeeDude  Hello. To be frank, Some of my ideas are under review or accepted for three or four years.
