Learn how unstructured data can be processed in parallel fashion — within a machine and across a series of machines — by leveraging IBM DB2® for Linux®, UNIX®, and Windows® and GPFS™ shared-nothing cluster (SNC) to provide efficient highly scalable access to unstructured data, all through a standard SQL interface. Realize this capability with clusters of commodity hardware, suitable for provisioning in the cloud or directly on bare metal clusters of commodity hardware. Scalability is achieved within the framework via the principle of computation locality. Computation is performed local to the host that has direct data access, thus minimizing or eliminating network bandwidth requirements and eliminating the need for any shared compute resource.
