DB2 10.5 BLU Excelleration - Super Analytics - Super Easy

Imagine a database technology that gives you 10-20 times faster performance right out of the box, requires dramatically less storage, and nearly eliminates the need for tuning. Too good to be true? - Not anymore.

IBM® DB2® 10.5 with BLU Acceleration changes everything. This revolutionary technology for complex analytic queries originated in the Blink project at IBM Research for in-memory, hardware-optimized analytics. It was then perfected and seamlessly integrated with DB2 through a collaboration between DB2 product development, the IBM Systems Optimization Competency Center, and IBM Research—adding columnar processing, broader SQL support, I/O and CPU efficiencies, and integration with the DB2 SQL compiler, query optimizer, and storage layer. BLU Acceleration is all about reducing costs and improving time-to-value by making complex analytics faster, easier, and more resource-friendly.
