Breakthrough in Alibaba Cloud Computing Capabilities — BigBench Reaches 100 TB World Record

  1. Break through the capacity bottleneck. When BigBench data capacity exceeds 10 TB, most products will be bottlenecked and unable to expand. BigBench on MaxCompute enables data capacity to be expanded to 100 TB, which meets users’ increasing data capacity requirements.
  2. Lower cost. Conventional hardware + software building mode requires servers. Though the server cost can be apportioned throughout the lifespan of the servers, purchasing hardware means that your future computing resources come at an increased relative cost, as hardware inevitably drops in price year by year. BigBench employs price/QPM to calculate the price/performance ratio. Compared with the conventional hardware mode, MaxCompute supports prepayment and data-based payment, which offers pricing flexibility and competitive price/performance ratios.
  3. Meet scalability requirement. The demand of data on the internet means that an explosion of traffic could happen at any time. The traditional hardware model requires a long adjustment period to meet increased demand. BigBench on MaxCompute enables on-demand computing capacity expansion, satisfying enterprises’ capacity expansion requirements at any particular time.
  4. Save O&M workload. Traditionally, a data room needs to be maintained by an O&M team. Usually, the maintenance quality cannot be guaranteed. BigBench on MaxCompute runs on public cloud, saving enterprise customers from investing additional manpower to carry out maintenance.
    BigBench on MaxCompute is modified based on TPCx-BB, so it is compatible with all TPCx-BB semantics. As an industrial benchmark, TPCx-BB covers all operation types of big data processing, including SQL, MapReduce, Streamling, and MachineLearning. The full coverage capability of BigBench on MaxCompute reflects MaxCompute’ software stack integrity in big data processing. The following table lists the software stacks of BigBench on MaxCompute:
  1. Alibaba Cloud account;
  2. BigBench on MaxCompute toolkit;
  3. and MaxCompute client.
    For details on the platform use, see MaxCompute Official Documentations.
