When migrating database workloads to the cloud, it is critical to select a database deployment that has the capabilities required for your business scenario. With so many database engines and instance types available, businesses need to be able to compare performances to make the right choice.

Alibaba Cloud provides various database services for OLTP and OLAP workloads, and supports custom deployments to handle hybrid transactional/analytical processing (HTAP) workloads. You can build proof of concept (POC) projects to benchmark the performance of different instance types and guide you towards making the best purchase decision. This solution allows you to implement database performance tests based on commonly used benchmarks, including the Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC) and sysbench benchmarks. Additionally, you can create HTAP capabilities based on near real-time data streaming from OLTP to OLAP, reducing the time-to-result of your data analytics missions.
