Business leaders depend on data about business operations and the marketplace to differentiate their businesses from competitors. Identifying hidden relationships, patterns and trends in the era of big data can be a daunting task given the unprecedented volume, variety, velocity and veracity of data, in the face of higher demands for analytics. Organizations need faster insight and agility to create new business opportunities, increase operational efficiency and drive customer satisfaction.
IBM BLU Acceleration Solution – Power Systems Edition enables faster and less complex analytic queries and reporting using dynamic in-memory columnar technologies for business intelligence and data warehouse applications. The solution is built on a Power ESE* server and includes IBM DB2 with BLU Acceleration which is specifically optimized to take advantage of Simultaneous Multi-Threading in POWER7+ processors, and autonomically detects and exploits larger pages and storage keys. BLU Acceleration is also designed to take advantage of multiple cores. Efficient use of available hardware such as memory, I/O and CPU helps to reduce memory latency and processing. DB2 with BLU Acceleration is fully integrated with DB2 on Power servers. It does not require SQL or schema changes to implement.
IBM BLU Acceleration Solution – Power Systems Edition also includes AIX and PowerVM providing security, resilience and the flexibility to add analytics applications such as Cognos in separate virtual machines. As data volumes grow requiring larger data warehouses, Capacity on Demand functions enable the seamless addition of processor cores and memory for greater capacity, and application migration without powering down the system.
For businesses who want to more effectively achieve profitability and competitive differentiation for analytic data workloads, DB2 with BLU Acceleration on the range of Power servers provides a high performance, highly resilient and secure data warehouse infrastructure for faster insights from analytics.
