If you’ve been watching the twitter feed lately, you may have noticed some pretty awesome claims coming from our Intel friends. Here’s a sample:
When I heard about these claims, I wanted to know more. Lucky for me, I was called into a meeting at the Toronto Lab when several Intel experts were on-site, so I was able to ask questions directly.
It turns out that Allen Wei from IBM and Jantz Tran from Intel worked together to come up with these amazing results and they then wrote this paper to explain their findings: Performance Paper Unlock the Value of Your Data with Intel and IBM Innovations.
I asked both Allen and Jantz to write blog entries about their paper and they came up with this:
How Intel and IBM Did Big Data 148x Better (by Tim Allen in conjunction with Jantz Tran).
We also were able to get two more blog entries about the partnership between IBM & Intel:

We knew that BLU and Intel were a great match already in November, 2013. Watch this video starting Judy Huber from IBM and Pauline Nist from Intel that was recorded at that time: Intel & IBM on Collaboration around DB2 with BLU Acceleration
I hope you enjoy this information and have learned that using DB2 with BLU Acceleration on Intel’s hardware will help you experience great spead.
