-  Performance, TCO, and price-performance claims based on data from a study commissioned by Microsoft and conducted by GigaOm in March 2021 for the Cloud Analytics Platform Total Cost of Ownership report. Analytics in Azure costs up to 59 percent less than other cloud providers according to the Cloud Analytics Platform Total Cost of Ownership report. Data is taken from Test-DS derived queries, and is based on query execution performance testing of 103 queries per vendor, conducted by GigaOm in March 2021; testing commissioned by Microsoft. The primary metric used was the aggregate total of the best execution times for each query. Three power runs were completed. Each of the 103 queries (99 plus part 2 for 4 queries) was executed three times in order (1, 2, 3, … 98, 99) against each vendor cloud platform, and the overall fastest of the three times was used as the performance metric. These best times were then added together to obtain the total aggregate execution time for the entire workload. Prices are based on publicly available US pricing as of March 2021. Actual performance and prices may vary.
