SPEAKERS: Matthias Nicola (IBM Silicon Valley Lab), Agustin Gonzalez (Intel)

Many enterprises today are struggling to manage the ever increasing volumes of XML data that they generate or consume. In a joint effort, IBM and Intel have executed the industry's first Terabyte XML database benchmark, using a realistic financial application scenario. This session presents our experiences and performance results. They prove that managing XML data in the TB range is feasible today with high performance and low power consumption on cost-effective hardware. Learn how we configured and tuned DB2 for this task, the problems we had to solve, and the characteristics of the hardware used. The results also quantify DB2ís scalability with Linux on Intelís quad-core and six-core processors.
