EsgynDB is the only SQL-on-Hadoop solution to run the entire TPC-DS benchmark.

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 [...]
