The best benchmark to assess the capabilities of a database for BI/Analytics workloads is the TPC-DS benchmark. While the deep integration with Apache ORC and performance tuning of EsgynDB for TPC-DS type workloads is still very early in its maturity cycle, the results are already very impressive. While for the operational benchmarks there was [...]
Hybrid Transactional/Analytical Processing (HTAP) on Hadoop As businesses become more agile, the need for real-time and near real-time analysis on transactional data has become more important than ever. For database veterans, transactions and analytics have always been on two different systems. Such silo-ed approach resulted in expensive ETL processes, specialized data marts, [...]
Are You Experimenting with Multiple SQL Engines? Finding the right SQL Engine has always been a tough task, especially when you have myraid of options to choose from.
