TPC-H evaluation of EXASOL.
Ahead of the crowd. Always.

The TPC-H is the independent industry benchmark when it comes to evaluating the performance as well as price/performance of analytic database solutions.


EXASOL leads the pack.

Over the years, there have been over 220 recorded TPC-H benchmarks. Many database vendors have posted results on a vast range of hardware and at various scale factors up to 100TB. By running the same unbiased scripts you can compare database vendor with database vendor – and you can often see how well the same database runs on different hardware.

Since 2014, EXASOL has maintained its position as the undisputed leader.  From data volumes that range from 100GB right up to 100TB, EXASOL holds the number one position - by a significant margin - over other solutions, for both raw performance and price-performance.

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 management summary is that EXASOL is many times better than its nearest competitor and orders of magnitude better than some names that you might expect to be better.
