1.Results derived from running IBM’s Big Data Insights concurrent query benchmark on two equivalent Db2 Warehouse environments with 24 database partitions on two EC2 nodes, each with 48 cores, 768 GB memory and a 25 Gbps network interface. One environment used the new cloud object storage and advanced caching capability, and the other environment did not use the caching capability and was used as a baseline. The test revealed a 4x increase in query speed (213 secs vs 51 secs) using the new capability. Reduction of storage costs is derived from price for cloud object storage, which is priced 34x cheaper than SSD-based block storage.
