Big Data Alliance


The Big Data 100 List initiative is an open community-based effort for benchmarking Big Data systems. The objective is to develop an end-to-end application-layer benchmark for big data applications to enable ranking of big data systems according to a well-defined, verifiable/audited performance metric, with an accompanying efficiency metric.
