TPC Benchmarks have become the gold standard in database benchmarks. The Companies who publish TPC Benchmarks have a significant investment in the workload, benchmark implementation and publication requirements. We will explore ideas on how TPC Benchmarks with limited modification can be used to characterize database performance in a cloud environment. This is a natural progression beyond the current TPC-VMS Specification that leverages existing TPC Benchmarks to measure database performance in a virtualized environment. The TPC-VMS Specification only addresses the consolidation of multiple databases in a virtualized or cloud environment. In addition to consolidation, we will address the cloud characteristics of load balancing, migration, resource elasticity and deployment.
