|DB2 Tech Talk: Adopt BLU Acceleration in DB2 10.5 the Faster Easier Way
DB2 BLU Acceleration allows for “Speed of Thought” analytics designed to handle data-intensive analytics workload. It extends the capabilities of traditional in-memory systems by providing in-memory performance even when the data set size exceeds the size of the available memory.BLU Acceleration introduces a new column organization for table storage along with parallel data analysis and added compression. Learn about the use InfoSphere Optim tooling to allow for faster and easier adoption of BLU Acceleration that will provide the following:- Monitor the system performance before the adoption- Capture of the workload on the pre-adoption DB2 system- Recommend which tables are the best candidates to convert to columnar organization as well as obtain estimates on how much improvement you can expect- Automatically apply the conversion to adopt the new technology- Re-monitor and validate the results after conversion.This webcast will demonstrate an end-to-end scenario of how the tools can be used to make the adoption of BLU Acceleration technology faster and easier.
DB2 Tech Talk: DB2 pureScale + HADR for Always Available Transactions, DB2 10.5
Join IBM architect Aamer Sachedina for an in-depth discussion of the enhancements in DB2 10.5 that help ensure "always available" transactions. DB2 pureScale provides two major functions: enables capacity scaling without application change; and provides an always available environment so that transactional workloads, queries and other tasks continue uninterrupted in case of unplanned downtime. Now in DB2 10.5, several enhancements work with DB2 pureScale to ensure the ultimate in availability and disaster recovery for transactional workloads. In addition to providing a DB2 pureScale refresher, Aamer will cover the new enhancements including:• Integration with DB2 high availability disaster recovery (HADR) functionality, to provide pureScale cluster mirroring remotely or locally to a standby server, thus enabling minimal impact to critical transaction systems• Support for rolling maintenance updates, which is the ability to maintain individual machines in the cluster without impacting the user experienceJoin us to learn the technical details behind these enhancements and how they help to ensure "always available" transactions.
DB2 Tech Talk: Deep Dive on BLU Acceleration in DB2 10.5, Super Easy Analytics
Join DB2 expert Sam Lightstone for an in-depth discussion of the all-new BLU Acceleration features in DB2 10.5 for Linux, UNIX and Windows. BLU Acceleration is designed to deliver results from data-intensive analytic workloads with speed and precision that is termed "speed of thought" analytics. In this Tech Talk, Sam will explain the details of this ground-breaking technology such as:•Dynamic in-memory analytics that do not require all of the data to fit in memory in order to perform analytics processing•Parallel vector processing, driving spectacular CPU exploitation•Enhanced columnar storage techniques, including supporting the coexistence of row-organized and column-organized tables in the same database, and even in the same workload and SQL•Actionable compression that does not require data to be decompressed in order to be analyzed, plus intelligent pre-fetch capabilities... and more! Join us to learn the technical details behind this exciting advancement and find out why it makes super analytics, super easy to perform.
DB2 Tech Talk: Introduction and Technical Tour of DB2 with BLU Acceleration
Join Distinguished Engineer and DB2 expert Berni Schiefer and host Rick Swagerman for a technical tour of the all new DB2 10.5 with BLU Acceleration software. You will learn about new features such as: •BLU Acceleration, for “Speed of Thought” analytics Designed to handle data-intensive analytics workloads, BLU Acceleration extends the capabilities of traditional in-memory systems by providing in-memory performance even when the data set size exceeds the size of the memory. Learn about RAM data loading capabilities, plus “data skipping”; parallel data analysis; actionable compression for analysis without decompressing data and more. • New DB2 pureScale capabilities that enable online rolling maintenance updates and capacity growth with no planned downtime, plus new integration HADR capabilities to help ensure always available transactions. • SQL and Oracle Database compatibility refinements in DB2 10.5, helping to ensure fast, easy moves to DB2 as well as increased flexibility for DB2 applications. • Enhancements to NoSQL technologies that are now business-ready in DB2 10.5. Although not part of the DB2 10.5 announcement, we will fill you in on other No SQL technology introduction plans as well.• New packaging editions of DB2 that that handle either OLTP or data warehousing needs.• DB2 tools advances that support these new functions.Join us for this Tech Talk to find out about these exciting enhancements and how they can help you deliver the data analytics your organization needs while providing tools to keep your OLTP systems in top shape.
DB2 Tech Talk: Real-World Data Warehousing for Tech Pros: Current and Coming
Data warehousing is a rapidly growing and exciting area of technology because warehouse applications provide insightful information. In turn, these insights result in an operational or marketplace advantage for the organization. While keeping the OLTP systems in top condition is a full time focus for many, warehousing has become a must-have skill. Through this technical webcast, you can quickly expand your level of understanding on data warehousing technologies. Join Jessica Rockwood, IBM warehouse development and performance expert, to learn the current technologies in warehousing and what is needed in the future. Jessica will review core principles - the why, what, and how of warehousing. Then, she’ll cover current day challenges and the new capabilities needed for warehouses of the future. Attend this talk to expand your warehousing knowledge.
DB2 Tech Talk: Realtime Decision Making PureData Systems for Op Analytics
Join architect James Cho for an in-depth discussion of this new tool for realtime operational warehousing that can help your organization speed the decision making process. You will learn when to use an operational warehouse for realtime decision making, for example fraud detection. James will also explain the features and advantages of this expert integrated system -- simplified deployment and maintenance and more.Please note this talk is being delivered at 12:30 PM ET. You may see a different time presented depending the default CT zone or the time zone you indicate when you register.
DB2 Tech Talk: DB2 in a Big Data World: NoSQL, XML & More
Big Data is a hot topic today because it is now possible to analyze 'all' available data and derive meaningful insights. This includes a massive volume of both structured and unstructured data from standard relational databases to internet chatter, to device-derived data such as sensors and more. While DB2 is commonly associated with relational data, it is able to handle many other data types. XML data support has been available for several releases and in DB2 10 RDF Graph Store has been introduced for building next-generation applications. This Tech Talk will hit on features in DB2 10 that make it suitable for certain types of Big Data applications. It will also cover capabilities in other product offerings in the IBM Big Data portfolio and how they integrate with and compliment DB2. Our presenters are Rav Ahuja, a DB2 on cloud expert and Big Data evangelist as well as Mario Briggs who is the developer for the RDF technologies in DB2 10.
