DB2 9 is a leading-edge hybrid data server that offers optimum storage, scalability, and availability. DB2 pureScale is a new technology primarily optimized for scale-out transactional processing clusters in an active-active manner. This succinct guide will show you how DB2 with pureScale can provide you transparent application scalability, the ability to deliver agile-like computing to your transaction systems, and extreme availability.

The next Chat with the Lab session will focus on DB2 pureScale:

 

DB2 pureScale - Always-on, Elastic Database Cluster

Date:     Tue, August 31, 2010
Time:     11:30 AM - 1:00 PM Eastern (GMT-04:00)
    10:30 AM Central / 8:30 AM Pacific / 16:30hrs London / 17:30hrs Frankfurt, Paris / India 9 PM
Speakers:     Sal Vella (IBM), Drew Bradstock (IBM)
Host:        Rav Ahuja (IBM)
Description:

Last year IBM released DB2 pureScale, an integrated database cluster solution that provides continuous data availability, virtually unlimited capacity, elastic scalability, and all this with easy setup and management but without requiring any applications changes. IBM has recently updated DB2 pureScale and announced that it will now also be available to run on Intel-based commodity hardware and Linux. In this webcast we will cover various DB2 pureScale related topics including:  architecture, benefits, demos, experiences, and getting started.

To learn more and get your questions answered, join Sal Vella (VP, Development), and Drew
Bradstock (
Product Manager) on Tuesday August 31, 2010 at 11:30 AM Eastern.

Presentation charts for this Chat will be available for download from ibm.com/db2/labchats 1-2 days prior to the event.

  I was asked this question this morning and I thought this might be a good one to answer in my blog.

We don't have a book about DB2 pureScale yet, but I have a team of experts putting together a flash book that will be available early next year.  In the mean time, I suggest you look at the following sources of information:

New IBM Redbook: DB2 Virtualization

New IBM Redbook: DB2 Virtualization

by

Whei-Jen Chen

Server virtualization technologies are becoming more popular to help efficiently utilize resources by consolidating servers. IBM, the first company that developed and made available the virtual technology in 1966, offers advanced, powerful, reliable, and cost-saving virtualization technologies in various hardware and software products including DB2® for Linux, UNIX, and Windows. This IBM Redbooks publication describes using IBM DB2 9 with server virtualization.

The book starts with a general overview of virtualization and describes specific server virtualization technologies to highlight how the server virtualization technologies have been implemented. With this introduction anyone new to virtualization will have a better understanding of server virtualization and the industry server virtualization technologies available in the market.

Following the virtualization concept,  the book describes in detail the setup, configuration, and managing of DB2 with three leading server virtualization technologies:

  • IBM Power Systems™ with PowerVM™
  • VMware
  • Hyper-V

The virtual machine setup is done with DB2 in mind to help IT support understand the effective ways of setting up a virtual environment specific for DB2. The architecture and components of these three server virtualization technologies are explained to allow DBAs to understand how a database environment using DB2 can benefit from using the server virtualization technologies.

In addition, the DB2 features and functions that can take advantage of using server virtualization are discussed. These features are put into practice when describing how to set up DB2 with the three virtualization technologies discussed in this book. This book also includes a list of best practices from the various tests performed while using these virtualization technologies. These best practices can be used as a guideline or a reference when setting up DB2 using these virtualization technologies.


For those of you attending the IBM Information on Demand Conference later this month, you'll be given a chance to get a free printed copy of this book and meet author Jason Chan.


Enjoy all the coverage that DB2 is getting because of theIBM DB2 pureScale announcement last week!  From what I've seen... very positive reactions!
