There’s a new version of the DB2 Analytics Accelerator for z/OS available (version 4.1) so it only makes sense that we should also have a new IBM Redbooks publication that discusses this new version along with all the latest Accelerator performance metrics that are available.
If you would like to read about all the latest improvements and enhancements we have made tot he DB2 Accelerator, if you would like to know how the DB2 Accelerator can take queries that run in hours and run them in seconds, if you would be interested in the details about DB2 Accelerator load and incremental update features and how they performs, what about something on the monitoring enhancements, the on-line archiving feature, installation and maintenance hints and tips, or the new Accelerator Loader utility, then this is definitely the book that you want to download and read immediately. It has everything you will ever wanted to know (well maybe not everything, but we did our best to try and do just that).
Information about this book:
The IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator for IBM z/OS (simply called Accelerator in this book) is a high-performance appliance which integrates the IBM zEnterprise infrastructure and the IBM Netezza technology to accelerate data intensive and complex queries in a DB2 for z/OS highly secure and available environment. DB2 and the Accelerator appliance form a self-managing hybrid environment running concurrently and efficiently online transaction processing and online transactional analytical processing together with business intelligence and online analytic processing workloads.
IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator V4.1 expands the value of high-performance analytics. DB2 Analytics Accelerator 4.1 opens up to static SQL applications and row set processing, minimizes data movement, reduces latency, and improves availability.
In this IBM Redbooks publication, we provide technical decision-makers with an understanding of the benefits of Version 4.1 of the Accelerator with DB2 11 for z/OS. We describe the installation of the new functions and the advantages to existing analytical processes as measured in our test environment. We also introduce the Analytics Accelerator Loader 1.1, a tool which facilitates the data population of the Accelerator.
