Database managers are looking for a solution that capitalizes on the performance advantages of in-memory data storage, placing the highest value data in main server memory where it can be quickly accessed and processed. At the same time, you do not want your database solution to be limited to main server memory, because that would mean continuously adding costly memory systems to meet growing demand in the era of big data. Instead, you want a solution that can intelligently pull data from other available sources as required for a query and make optimum use of all your existing hardware resources.
Ultimately, you can reap the benefits of an intelligent hardware and software strategy.
This ebook explores key elements to consider when evaluating in-memory database options, including cost-efficient performance, simple deployment, hardware foundation strength, security and agility, as well as benefits of using IBM DB2 with BLU Acceleration and IBM Power Systems together.
