TPC-H Benchmark

What’s a TPC-H benchmark – and why does it matter?

The Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC) is a non-profit that creates unbiased tests to determine how the same database runs on different hardware. To-date, there have been over 220 recorded TPC-H benchmarks on a range of hardware and at various scale factors up to 100TB.

The benchmark’s design was to simulate a set of basic scenarios to answer fundamental business questions and report business outcomes relevant to many industry sectors
