TPC(tm) Big Data Working Group (TPC-BD) Overview
The designation "Big Data" has become a mainstream buzz phrase across many industries as well as research circles. Big Data was identified as one of the top areas for benchmark development at the most recent TPC Technology Conference on Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking . However, today many vendors are making performance claims that are not easily verifiable in the absence of a neutral industry-wide benchmark.
With this in mind, the TPC has created a Big Data Working Group (TPC-BDWG) tasked with developing industry standards for benchmarking Big Data systems. Companies, research and government institutions who are interested in influencing the development of such benchmarks are encouraged to join the TPC
