Thanks to IBM Champions Jean-Marc Blaise, Iqbal Gorawalla, and Tony Winch who joined Rick Swagerman on a special edition of Tech Talks, called Tech Bits, to share their impressions of the new DB2 10.5 with BLU Acceleration. These are short but very informative and worth the time it takes to listen.
Listen to Berni Schiefer to find out about enhancements to DB2 pureScale that make it even more able to deliver always available transactions. You’ll also learn about updates to SQL, Oracle Database compatibility, business-ready NoSQL technology and additional NoSQL plans.
More are added all the time. Hear directly from customers who spent time using the new technology with their own data and how the technology fared.
Read this article that was published on April 3, 2013 in the IBM Data Magazine (ibmdatamag.com) by Guy Lohman, Sam Lightstone and Berni Schiefer. “Imagine a database technology that gives you 10-20 times faster performance right out of the box, requires dramatically less storage, and nearly eliminates the need for tuning. Too good to be true? Not anymore.”
If you are a developer or DBA and are interested in DB2, take this opportunity to preview emerging technologies that are still in the lab. IBM wants to collaborate with you early in technology conception, prototyping, and iterative development cycles. These technologies may or may not be aligned with announced products. The features or technologies in the download do not represent a commitment or obligation on the part of IBM.
Enjoy the webinars! Learn as much as you can, because when this code is available, you’ll want to start using it in production.
