About these proceedings


This book constitutes the refereed post-conference proceedings of the 6th TPC Technology Conference, TPCTC 2014, held in Hangzhou, China, in September 2014. It contains 12 selected peer-reviewed papers, a report from the TPC Public Relations Committee.

Many buyers use TPC benchmark results as points of comparison when purchasing new computing systems. The information technology landscape is evolving at a rapid pace, challenging industry experts and researchers to develop innovative techniques for evaluation, measurement and characterization of complex systems. The TPC remains committed to developing new benchmark standards to keep pace, and one vehicle for achieving this objective is the sponsorship of the Technology Conference on Performance Evaluation and Benchmarking (TPCTC). Over the last five years TPCTC has been held successfully in conjunction with VLDB.
