Microservices Applications on Amazon EKS

Acting like a vertical pod autoscaler, Pepperdata Capacity Optimizer works with the Amazon EKS horizontal pod autoscaler to align pod resource requests with actual usage so that pods, workloads, and nodes can be scaled more efficiently, leading to lower costs.

TPC-DS Benchmarking

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 an unofficial benchmark as defined by TPC. Using a 1 TB dataset on 30 nodes with 225 executors and 103 TPC-DS jobs, Pepperdata found that Capacity Optimizer Next Gen:

  • Improved performance—decreased query duration by 30%
  • Increased throughput—increased workload capacity by 42%
