So what is really a cool factor of z16 at the end? It is brand new, there is some excitement, and there are some high expectations. There is also a huge potential for Db2 to exploit z16 features. Time will show. From my little world's perspective, this is a cool stuff I showed to the students at the university I mentioned at the beginning of my blog. Hopefully, some of the students enjoyed it and hopefully some of you will soon enjoy Db2 and the synergy with IBM z16.
In the mean time you can enjoy this video where a famous YouTuber gets really excited about the new z16 ;-)
