Reduce Operational Costs, Maximize Savings

*Statistics captured from our 2023 benchmark work on Amazon EKS


Cost Savings: Reduced instance hour consumption


Improved Performance: Decreased application runtime


Increased Throughput: Uplift in average concurrent container count

*TPC-DS is the Decision Support framework from the Transaction Processing Performance Council. TPC-DS is an industry-standard big data analytics benchmark. Pepperdata’s work is not an official audited benchmark as defined by TPC. TPC-DS benchmark results (Amazon EKS), 1 TB dataset, 500 nodes, and 10 parallel applications with 275 executors per application.
