|Abstract: In 2012, SAP introduced a new Enhanced Mixed Load benchmark (BW-EML) to its evolving suite of business warehouse benchmarks. BW-EML targets business warehouse demands for ever-growing database sizes and increased reporting complexity. While other database engines are seeking enhancements like columnar data store to be competitive in the large data space, IBM i running on IBM Power Systems has continued to deliver industry leading performance with DB2 for i.|
From the first BW certification in 2004 on DB2 for i5/OS V5R3, followed by 6 certifications on SAP’s BI Datamart benchmark, and 9 unchallenged SAP BI Mixed Load (BI-XML) certifications, IBM i running on IBM Power Systems and DB2 for i have recorded nearly a decade of strong benchmark results across the SAP business warehouse benchmarks.
In August 2013, this tradition continues as IBM i certified industry leading results in the SAP BW-EML 500,000,000 row benchmark with 66,900 query navigation steps per hour on a IBM POWER model 750.
This article provides an overview of the BW-EML benchmark, details on the IBM i certification, and describes the DB2 for i unique database technology that helped achieve these results.
