In this slidecast, Raghu Nambiar from Cisco introduces the new TPCx-HS Benchmark for Big Data. TPCx-HS can be used to asses a broad range of system topologies and implementation methodologies in a technically rigorous and directly comparable vendor-neutral manner.
TPCx-HS is a major achievement in two distinct arenas,” said Raghunath Nambiar, chairman of the TPCx-HS committee, and a distinguished engineer at Cisco. ”TPCx-HS is the first vendor-neutral benchmark focused on big data systems – which have become a critical part of the enterprise IT ecosystem. Secondly, TPCx-HS is the first Express-class benchmark issued by the TPC. Express-class benchmarks are being developed in response to overwhelming demand for a turnkey alternative to enterprise-class benchmarks, which have distinct advantages but are also substantially more time-intensive and costly to run.”
