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.
