SQL Server industry benchmarks

SQL Server is a trusted platform with industry-leading TPC benchmark results. The TPC-E Benchmark measures an online transaction processing (OLTP) workload representative of modern customer environments. The TPC-E benchmark is not designed to take advantage of SQL Server in-memory OLTP features. Please view the partner benchmarks page to view the transactional performance gains with in-memory OLTP.

The TPC-H Benchmark measures the performance of a representative data warehouse workload. The TPC-H benchmark workload utilizes SQL Server updateable in-memory columnstore technology to achieve excellent query performance.
