The draft of the redbook Optimizing DB2 Queries with IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator for z/OS , SG248005, is available.
The 'blurb' says:
The IBM® DB2® Analytics Accelerator Version 2.1 for z/OS (also called DB2 Analytics Accelerator or Query Accelerator in this book and in DB2 for z/OS documentation) is a marriage of the System z® Quality of Service and Netezza® technology to accelerate complex queries in a DB2 for z/OS® highly secure and available environment. Superior performance and scalability with rapid appliance deployment provide an ideal solution for complex analysis.
This IBM Redbooks® publication provides a broad understanding of the IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator architecture and its exploitation by documenting the steps for the installation of this solution in an existing DB2 10 for z/OS environment. We define a business analytics scenario, evaluate the potential benefits of the DB2 Analytics Accelerator appliance, describe the installation and integration steps with the DB2 environment, evaluate performance, and show the advantages to existing business intelligence processes.
If you want to review the draft, and provide feedback on this exciting new feature, now is your chance!

DB2 10 can reduce the total DB2 CPU demand from 5-20% when you take advantage of all the enhancements. Many CPU reductions are built in directly to DB2, requiring no application changes. Some enhancements are implemented through normal DB2 activities through rebinding, restructuring database definitions, improving applications, and utility processing. The CPU demand reduction features have the potential to provide significant total cost of ownership savings based on the application mix and transaction types.
Improvements in optimization reduce costs by processing SQL automatically with more efficient data access paths. Improvements through a range-list index scan access method, list prefetch for IN-list, more parallelism for select and index insert processing, better work file usage, better record identifier (RID) pool overflow management, improved sequential detection, faster log I/O, access path certainty evaluation for static SQL, and improved distributed data facility (DDF) transaction flow all provide more efficiency without changes to applications. These enhancements can reduce total CPU enterprise costs because of improved efficiency in the DB2 10 for z/OS.
DB2 10 includes numerous performance enhancements for Large Objects (LOBs) that save disk space for small LOBs and that provide dramatically better performance for LOB retrieval, inserts, load, and import/export using DB2 utilities. DB210 can also more effectively REORG partitions that contain LOBs.
This IBM Redbooks® publication® provides an overview of the performance impact of DB2 10 for z/OS discussing the overall performance and possible impacts when moving from version to version. We include performance measurements that were made in the laboratory and provide some estimates.
Keep in mind that your results are likely to vary, as the conditions and work will differ.
In this book, we assume that you are somewhat familiar with DB2 10 for z/OS.
See DB2 10 for z/OS Technical Overview, SG24-7892-00, for an introduction to the new functions.
