If you did, you missed a great show, BUT…. you can listen to the replay:
In episode #34, special guest George Baklarz, IBM Toronto Lab, shared a demonstration of some very cool (and free) tools that can be used to estimate DB2 compression results, simulate DB2 pureScale operation, and learn about the plethora of DB2 features and capabilities. He also shared a few tips and used his crystal ball to gaze into the future of DB2.

As of today, my blog has had 928,132 visits since April 2009. So close to a million! Thanks everyone for reading… I very much like writing and sharing!
Last week we ran a twitter chat about compression in the new DB2 10.5 with BLU Acceleration. If you took part, you’ll agree with me that this is a very popular topic!
To lead up to a twitterchat, we gather articles and blog entries to build a reading list. We also ask our influencers to write about the topic. With a little help from our friends, we were able to achieve greatness.
Here’s a summary
The second big idea behind BLU Acceleration pertains to how DB2 encodes and compresses data and the way that it ―packs‖ the CPU registers. This topic is thoroughly covered in the first chapter of this book that was released in electronic format. Here are a few quotes from this chapter:
Be sure to download your chapter from this flashbook: DB2 10.5 with BLU Acceleration and learn from the authors Paul Zikopoulos, Matthew Huras, Sam Lightstone, George Baklarz, and Aamer Sachedina.
Video: Actionable Compression in DB2 10.5 with BLU Acceleration
Paul Zikopoulos talks with Master Inventor Sam Lightstone in this video called “Actionable Compression in DB2 10.5 with BLU Acceleration”. BLU compression allows you to work on the data while the data is still compressed. This is changes the game! Find out more by watching video.
Video: Client Praise for IBM DB2 BLU Acceleration - Speed, Access, Data Compression
Customers who took part in the early release of BLU Acceleration realized incredible results in terms of compression. Watch this video with Kent Collins, John Schlesinger, Andrew Juarez to learn more.
