1. 2.7X to 3.5X the memory of other offerings:
- VMware Cloud on AWS i3en.metal has 768 GB RAM. Oracle’s BM.DenseIO.E4.128 has 2,048 GB RAM. 2,048 GB ÷ 768 GB = 2.7X
- Google Cloud VMware Engine has 768 GB RAM. Oracle’s BM.DenseIO.E4.128 has 2,048 GB RAM. 2,048 GB ÷ 768 GB = 2.7X
- Azure VMware Solution has 576 GB RAM. Oracle’s BM.DenseIO.E4.128 has 2,048 GB RAM. 2,048 GB ÷ 576 GB = 3.5X

2. 1.2X to 3.5X storage of other offerings:
- VMware Cloud on AWS i3en.metal has 45.8 TB storage. Oracle’s BM.DenseIO.E4.128 has 54.4 TB storage. 54.4 TB ÷ 45.8 TB = 1.2X
- Google Cloud VMware Engine has 19.2 TB storage. Oracle’s BM.DenseIO.E4.128 has 54.4 TB storage. 54.4 TB ÷ 19.2 TB = 2.8x
- Azure VMware Solution has 15.3 TB of storage. Oracle’s BM.DenseIO.E4.128 has 54.4 TB storage. 54.4 TB ÷ 15.3 TB = 3.5X
