The TPC accepted Draft Version 52 of the TPC-DS specification for Formal Review. Members and the general public were invited to download the specification, run the draft benchmark, and submit comments and proposed changes by visiting the comment page. The comment database was open for submissions until May 23rd, 2007. The subcommittee will review and address the comments and propose a revised draft for adoption.
At the meeting the TPC-DS subcommittee focused on reviewing the comments and proposals. Nine companies have working prototypes with scale factors ranging from 1 GB to 1 TB on four hardware platforms, five operating systems and four databases.
