clabbyanalytics-126x80IBM's New Move in Big Data:

Accelaration, Optimization, and an Open Source Alternative

IBM Almaden Labs, San Jose, CA, April 2, 2013 - Announcement Review

In a major, multi-faceted announcement, IBM announced yesterday that it will soon deliver “speed-of-thought” analytics using DB2 “BLU” acceleration, improvements in its Big Insights and Stream products, and a tuned-for-Hadoop PureData System. IBM also announced time series improvements in Informix database line.

What do all of these announcements mean?

Probably the biggest news in IBM’s extensive announcement is the announcement of an analytics accelerator known as “BLU” acceleration. Although classified as an accelerator, to us, BLU acceleration is more like a process that uses a series of steps to analyze a very large database ? delivering results in seconds or less as opposed to hours or days.

The remainder of this report looks at IBM’s announcements more closely.

datamag-137x60DB2 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.

DB2 9: Optimierter pureXML-Datenserver für SOA-Lösungen.

Serviceorientierte Architekturen werden sehr häufig mit Hilfe  von Web-Services, einer plattformunabhängigen Sammlung  von Protokollen und Standards wie eXtensible Markup Language (XML) aufgebaut, was es unterschiedlichen Anwendungen und Systemen ermöglicht, Informationen auszutauschen. Durch unabhängige, bestimmten Spezifikationen wie Web Services Description Language (WSDL) entsprechende Web-Services entfällt der Aufwand, für jede Anwendung eine eigene Zugriffsmethode entwickeln zu müssen. Dadurch können die Entwicklungskosten gesenkt und die Anwendungsintegration vereinfacht werden.
