Expressor pre-announces a data loading benchmark leapfrog

Expressor Software plans to blow the Vertica/Syncsort “benchmark” out of the water, to wit

What I know already is that our numbers will between 7 and 8 min to load one TB of data and will set another world record for the tpc-h benchmark.

The whole blog post has a delightful air of skepticism, e.g.:

Sometimes the mention of a join and lookup are documented but why? If the files are load ready what is there to join or lookup?

… If the files are load ready and the bulk load interface is used, what exactly is done with the DI product?

My guess… nothing.

…  But what I can’t figure out is what is so complex about this test in the first place?
