InterSystems Launches Speed Test for Database Management Systems

InterSystems, a creative data technology provider dedicated to helping customers solve the most critical scalability, interoperability, and speed problems, announced the public availability of a speed test of its flagship InterSystems IRIS® data platform, the company said.

The test, a customizable transactional-analytic application measuring concurrent real-time ingest and query performance, enables visitors to easily run and compare InterSystems IRIS and other database management systems (DBMS) vendors on premises and on the AWS cloud.

Enterprise Strategy Group has validated the soundness and fairness of the tests and results, which measure the performance metrics of InterSystems IRIS against other popular databases for both transactional and analytical performance: number of records ingested, data ingestion rates, ingestion consistency over time, number of records queried, and query response time for each database. Results published by ESG show InterSystems IRIS outperforming a number of other popular databases.

The open source speed test is customizable, enabling users to easily modify the test data and queries to more closely test their own requirements, run the tests for themselves using InterSystems IRIS and other vendors, and compare the results.
