In 2008, IBM introduced in-memory database technology known as solidDB. This week I found out that Lily Ryzebol is now on the solidDB team... and coincidentally, the ID person (Katriina) from Finland is visiting the lab this week and is sitting at a desk near me.
That's the extent of what I know about solidDB at this point, so if you're like me and would like to learn more, join this chat with the lab to learn more:
DB2 Chat with the Lab - Wednesday, October 15th 8AM Pacific, 10 AM Central, 11 AM Eastern, 4 PM London, 5 PM ParisIBM solidDB - Complementing DB2 to Provide up to 10X Data Acceleration
This presentation will cover the key capabilities of IBM solidDB * micro-second response time* high transaction throughput* instant failover
– and how those capabilities address the real-time requirements for data access in key DB2 markets including financial services, healthcare, retail, and communications.
The presentation will also provide details about how solidDB in-memory cache complements DB2 to accelerate response times and increase transaction throughput, achieving extreme speed for data residing in DB2. Use cases will be explored.
There will also be good opportunities for technical Q&A. Our speakers will be Sal Vella, Vice President of Development for Linux, Unix and Windows and Business Intelligence and Ari Valtanen, Director of solidDB Technology (CTO). Ari comes to IBM from the acquisition of Solid Information Technology, where he was Co-Founder, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. As a member of the founding team at Solid, Valtanen spent 7 years as an Architect in core product development in Helsinki, Finland. He will be speaking with us from the lab in Helsinki.
