The TPC has played, and continues to play, a crucial role in providing the computer industry with relevant standards for total system performance, price-performance and energy efficiency comparisons. Historically known for database-centric standards, the TPC is now developing standards for consolidation using virtualization technologies and multi-source data integration, and exploring new ideas such as Big Data and Big Data Analytics to keep pace with rapidly changing industry demands. This paper gives a high level overview of the current state of the TPC in terms of existing standards, standards under development and future outlook.
