Simplicity is one of the big ideas behind the last version of DB2. BLU Acceleration is fully integrated with DB2. It does not require SQL or schema changes to implement. Just load and go. Enhancements such as automation, optimization and self-tuning help to further simplify overall use.
The first chapter of the flashbook can be read now and it is all about BLU. The full book will be available at IOD in November. Join us at the conference to get this book and much more information about this game changing software. As of this writing, there is still a discount available on IOD registrations. Check it out.
