It's almost time for another DB2 Tech Talk. I think this will be particularly interesting for DBAs that have heard about BLU Acceleration and are craving more technical information about this exciting new technology.
BLU Acceleration in DB2 10.5 for Linux, UNIX and Windows delivers results from data-intensive analytic workloads with speed and precision that is termed "speed of thought" analytics. Join IBM Distinguished Engineer and DB2 expert Sam Lightstone for an in-depth discussion of the all-new BLU Acceleration features in DB2 10.5.
In this DB2 Tech Talk, Sam will explain the details of this new technology such as:
Dynamic in-memory analytics that does not require all of the data to fit in memory in order to perform analytics processing
Parallel vector processing riving spectacular CPU utilization
Enhanced columnar storage techniques, including supporting the coexistence of row-organized and column-organized tables in the same database, even in the same workload and SQL statements.
Actionable compression that does not require the data to be decompressed in order to be analyzed, plus intelligent pre-fetch capabilities

Before you hear the details of this new technology, I would also suggest that you listen to a couple of recently recorded DB2 Tech Bits. There are 2 short recordings of three IBM Champions giving their impressions of the new BLU Acceleration technology in DB2 10.5 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. These champions participated in the early access beta program and agreed to share what they learned about this easy to use new technology that showed impressive performance results.
IBM Champions Jean-Marc-Blaise and Iqbal Gorawalla on BLU Acceleration in DB2 10.5
This is a single Tech Bit and is 24 minutes in length.
IBM Champion Tony Winch on BLU Acceleration in DB2 10.5
This Tech Bit is about 10 minutes in length
And finally, just in case you missed it, there is also a recording of the May 8th DB2 Tech Talk with Berni Schiefer providing a technical introduction of the new DB2 10.5 with BLU Acceleration.
