A few days ago, according to the official disclosure of the authoritative International Processing Performance Committee TPC, in the TPC-DS benchmark test known as “Database Analysis Scene Everest”, Alibaba Cloud ’s self-developed cloud-native data warehouse AnalyticDB refreshed the world with 14.89 million performance indicators The record has increased by more than 30% compared with the second place, and the unit computing cost has been reduced to 0.08 yuan, bringing the price-performance ratio of the data warehouse into the “less than one dime” era for the first time.
TPC-DS is an industry-recognized test benchmark for difficult database systems. It includes data import, query performance (single concurrent, multiple concurrent), query complexity (star / snowflake model, complex Window function support), availability (data consistency, Strict disk fault-tolerant processing, etc.) and strict assessment and strict audits are excellent standards for measuring the maturity and competitiveness of databases and big data systems.
Since traditional database vendors have poor support for distributed and parallel capabilities, since the list was announced in 2006, no traditional database vendor has passed the test, and currently only three companies are on the list.
The AnalyticDB, which won the double-material championship this time, is a cloud-native data warehouse independently developed by Alibaba Cloud. It adopts storage and computing separation + multiple copies architecture, supports up to 5,000 node scale elastic expansion, and speeds up complex SQL queries faster than traditional relational databases More than times. Unlike complex, high-threshold big data systems, AnalyticDB is highly compatible with MySQL and PostgreSQL. Oracle application migration costs are low, and real-time multi-dimensional analysis and perspective can be performed on trillion-level data, which greatly improves the efficiency of data mining.
In the TPC-DS benchmark test, Alibaba Cloud AnalyticDB ran a high score of 14.89 million QphDS, which is more than 3 times that of similar products such as Spark and Transwarp. It is worth mentioning that while the performance has been greatly improved to make the business more real-time and online, Alibaba Cloud has also reduced the computing cost to 0.08 yuan / QphDS, which greatly reduces the computing cost of the enterprise.
Gartner predicts that by 2023, 75% of global databases will run on the cloud. At present, Alibaba Cloud has ranked first in the domestic cloud database market share, and more than 400,000 database instances have been migrated to Alibaba Cloud, including leading companies in many fields such as government affairs, retail, finance, telecommunications, manufacturing, and logistics.
With independent research and development and continuous iterative technological advantages, Alibaba Cloud has become the largest cloud service provider in Asia, with its market share ranking among the top three in the world. “Today, from Feitianyun operating system to Shenlong server, database, switch, switch operating system, RDMA network, all are self-developed by Alibaba.” Previously, Zhang Jianfeng, President of Alibaba Cloud Intelligence revealed that Alibaba Cloud invested another 200 billion in the next three years These investments will be used for independent research and development of cloud operating systems, servers, chips, networks and other major core technologies and the construction of future-oriented data centers.
