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 :

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

i'm not holding my breath on getting an answer anytime soon. I hear that the minimum cores will be doubled in a future version. If you put your conspiracy hat on, double the number of minimum cores, keep the same price per core, = extra $ for Alteryx. 😐

@TheCoffeeDudeHello. double the minimum number of cores at the same total price would be ok, but at the same price by core, that would mean double the entry price , an entry price that's already pretty high, whih would lead to less sales. In other term, a commercial suicide.

Best regards,

When it's just for automation, wouldn't it be cheaper to use an Alteryx Designer with a huge number of cores and RPA to automate?

Just asking for a friend.

In a nutshell, Server gives you the ability to do version control on workflows, the ability for multiple users to schedule workflows, and share connections. If you have the Alteryx Desktop Scheduler (optional?), lots of cores on your desktop, not a lot of users, and use your preferred version control - then yes, Desktop is cheaper.

@TheCoffeeDude with RPA, you don't even need the Alteryx Desktop Scheduler...
