Exploit in-memory computing on DB2 12 for z/OS to realize gains

Posted on February 22, 2017 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

Previously I outlined the themes and highlights of DB2 12 for z/OS, including some high-level performance expectations. Let’s move on to look at a developing strategy to deliver performance and scalability improvements by the exploitation of large real memory, particularly the use of in-memory data structures optimised for performance.

The two…


IBM DB2 12 for z/OS is ready for Hybrid Transactional Analytical Processing

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."

Many major…
