I hope you’re taking part in some of the learning opportunities available now that DB2 10 & InfoSphere Warehouse 10 have released. Check out my blog from yesterday about all kinds of options: April 30, 2012: GA of Version 10 products: DB2 for LUW and InfoSphere Warehouse.
Today I want to expand on a couple of webinars that I mention in that post. First off, the DB2 Night Show. Last Friday, May 4, host Scott Hayes invited IBMers Danny Arnold and Glen Sheffeld to talk about the latest release: DB2 LUW 10.1! STOGROUPS, WLM, RCAC, and More. If you missed it, be sure to watch the replay. Replays available in WMV and M4V formats.
There is so much to talk about that this was just part 1, and was a deep dive into What's New in DB2 LUW V10. Storage Groups, Workload Manager Enhancements, and Row and Column Access Controls were covered, and many example SQL commands were shared to illustrate the concepts.
According to Scott’s website, 100% of the audience learned something new! “Danny and Glen were terrific guests. I appreciated all of the SQL and command examples that they shared while discussing STOGROUPS, WLM Enhancements, and RCAC. Their presentations offered significant technical depth - this wasn't just a DB2 10 marketing pitch. I am delighted that 100% of our studio audience indicated that they learned something.”
Register now for Part 2: Episode #81 will discuss DB2 10 compression enhancements, HADR, time travel queries, index jump scans, zigzag joins, and more. Special guests from IBM share breaking news about vNext. Part 2 of 2. This will be a 90 minute show. Yes, there is A LOT to talk about.
Secondly, The DB2 Tech Talk Series, hosted by Serge Rielau. The next show, DB2 Tech Talk: Optimizing Storage Utilization for DB2 10 , takes place May 11, 12:30 EST to 2PM EST.
Learn about the new storage optimization features in the newly available DB2 10 product.
We will cover three areas including:
- Adaptive Compression which allows you to reach higher compression ratios with DB2 10 than ever before.
- Multi-Temperature Data Management which configures your database so that your most frequently accessed data resides on fastest storage
- Workload Management, which provides the ability to treat work differently based on the data touched.
This technical tour is the second DB2 Tech Talk on the DB2
10 and InfoSphere Warehouse 10 product releases.
Additional webcasts will be offered throughout 2012 to provide an in-depth discussion on the features in these releases.
The first of the series was DB2 Tech Talk: Technical Tour of New DB2 10 and InfoSphere Warehouse 10, which took place April 26. Watch the replay. Serge Rielau, Conor O’Mahony, and Cindy Fung took you on a tour of DB2 10 & InfoSphere Warehouse 10.
Mark your calendar for the 3rd in the series, DB2 Tech Talk: Oracle Database and SQL/PL Compatibility, which takes place on May 31.
