This is the third part of “Backup and Recovery of DB2 Analytics Accelerator data now possible”. In this section, we explore how data can be restored from a backup in one or more accelerators.
The backup itself is stored on z/OS, because the backup and recovery process for IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator should be integrated as much as possible into existing backup and recovery processes on DB2 z/OS. A question that often arises…Continue

The IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator for z/OS provides the ability to gain greater insights and analytics capabilities from their enterprise DB2 data. The Accelerator allows you to run analytic queries against their existing DB2 data at higher speeds and lower costs than the same queries running natively on IBM DB2 for z/OS. This is great for data that exists…Continue

Data transformation is a core process in the operation of most business analytics hubs. However, even experienced data professionals can suffer from certain misconceptions about this practice, believing that data must be moved from source platforms to other platforms, often through several intermediary staging and storage systems, to enable transformation for downstream consumption in analytics applications.
But execution of high-performance data transformations on transactional…Continue
IBM DB2 12 for z/OS became generally available on Oct. 21, 2016. It's perhaps sobering to reflect on the fact that DB2 was first announced in 1983 and released in 1985, but its roots—and the roots of all relational databases—go all the way back to mathematician and IBM Fellow Edgar F. Codd's ground-breaking 1970 paper, "A Relational Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks."
