SPEAKERS: Ari Valtanen (IBM Software Group)

In 2008, IBM introduced in-memory database technology known as solidDB. This presentation will cover the key capabilities of IBM solidDB - micro-second response time, high transaction throughput, and 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. Several use cases will be explored.

EXP. LEVEL: Intermediate


what an in-memory database is, how it works compared to conventional, on-disk databases, and why an in-memory database performs faster than on-disk database, even when the latter caches all data into main memory.

learn the specific capabilities of IBM solidDB in-memory database and how it is architected to deliver fast response times and high throughput.

learn how IBM solidDB is integrated with IBM DB2 to accelerate access to performance-critical data residing in DB2.

review multiple use case scenarios to understand how solidDB extends DB2 into new applications, improving transaction rates by a factor up to 10 times.

Attendees will hear recent product enhancements and future product direction for solidDB.
