The HOBBIT evaluation platform is build upon the open-source platform GERBIL benchmarking platform, which resulted from collaboration between 8 institutions (including the Big Data vendor Unister) across Europe. This platform will ensure that:
- The benchmarks are easy to use.
- New benchmarks can be easily created and added to the platform by third parties.
- The evaluation can be scaled out to large datasets and on distributed architectures.
- The publishing and analysis of the results of different systems can be carried out in a uniform manner across the different benchmarks.
