TPC Express Benchmark(tm) HS (TPCx-HS) Version 2 Overview

Big Data technologies like Hadoop have become an important part of the enterprise IT ecosystem. The TPC Express Benchmark(TM) HS (TPCx-HS) was developed to provide an objective measure of hardware, operating system and commercial Apache Hadoop File System API compatible software distributions, and to provide the industry with verifiable performance, price-performance and availability metrics. The benchmark models a continuous system availability of 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Even though the modeled application is simple, the results are highly relevant to hardware and software dealing with Big Data systems in general. TPCx-HS stresses both the hardware and software stack including the Hadoop run-time, Hadoop Filesystem API compatible systems and MapReduce layers. TPCx-HS can be used to assess a broad range of system topologies and implementations of Hadoop clusters in a technically rigorous and directly comparable vendor-neutral manner.
