DCBench: A benchmark suite for data center workloads. The first release provides 19 representative workloads come from data center systems. The benchmark suite provides diverse kinds of workloads (on-line & off-line) and with different programming models (MPI, MapReduce, and etc.) and programming languages.(Now merger into BigDataBench)

BigDataBench: A benchmark suite for big data systems and researches. It not only covers broad application scenarios, but also includes diverse and representative data sets. It also includes most famous big data software stacks and the corresponding representative workloads.

BigDataBench architecture subset: The BigDataBench architecture subset is for the architecture communities.  Currently, it downsizes the full BigDataBench 3.0— 77 workloads—to 17 representative workloads. Each workload represents a workload cluster with a different size.

Search: a search proto type.
Due to the lack of permission to probe real-world web search engines, we set up a search server in our lab using Nutch as the search engine, and SoGou web corpus as the indices and snapshot data. However, we have obtained permission to use three real workload traces, one from SoGou and the other two from two of the largest search service providers in China. We have released the search system as a benchmark for datacenter computing, which is named Search.
