Solution Performance

The world’s fastest (according to TPC-H benchmarks), highly parallel, scalable in-memory clustered database. Ideally suited for real-time big data reporting, analysis and advanced analytics.

“The new Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor delivers yet even more analytic performance. We see up to 1.51x for 2 socket and up to 2.14X for 4 socket extra performance vs. previous generations of corresponding Intel® Xeon® processors for our latest EXASOL database in multi-user tests. Running on the new Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor-based servers allows our users to benefit from a whole new level of performance in our innovative in-memory DB technology.”
– André Hacker, Head of R&D, EXASOL AG

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
