EXASOL continues to set the gold standard when it comes to performance and price/performance. And this is reflected through the independent Transaction Processing Performance Council benchmarks (TPC-H) where EXASOL holds the number one position, by a significant margin over other solutions, for both raw performance and price-performance on data volumes ranging from 300GB through to 100TB.
The graph below illustrates the performance advantage of EXASOL at all scale factors and the detailed TPC-H results can be found on the Transaction Processing Performance Council website.
The TPC-H benchmark is a performance test of the TPC, a non-profit corporation founded to define database benchmarks and to disseminate objective, verifiable performance data to the industry. The TPC-H benchmark is a decision support benchmark. It consists of a suite of business oriented ad-hoc queries and concurrent data modifications. The queries and the data populating the database have been chosen to have broad industry-wide relevance. This benchmark illustrates decision support systems that examine large volumes of data, execute queries with a high degree of complexity, and give answers to critical business questions.
The performance metric reported by TPC-H is called the TPC-H Composite Query-per-Hour Performance Metric (QphH@Size), and reflects multiple aspects of the capability of the system to process queries. These aspects include the selected database size against which the queries are executed, the query processing power when queries are submitted by a single stream, and the query throughput when queries are submitted by multiple concurrent users. The TPC-H Price/Performance metric is expressed as $/QphH@Size.
