IOD 2009 Day 2 Gold Briefing Blog - DB2 pureScale
October 27th, 2009

Day 2 of the Gold Briefing, and I'm not the only one to see the irony of suffering from information overload at a data management conference!

Yesterday I talked about IBM's grand vision for Information-Led Transformation and the way it builds upon the innovations and acquisitions made over the past few years. I also mentioned that, important though these higher-level initiatives are for making today's enterprises more agile and efficient, there is an ongoing requirement to continually enhance the underlying data management technology in order to address more fundamental issues such as availability, scalability and total cost of ownership.

So today I want to spend some time on a technology that was originally supposed to be announced at IOD, but for various reasons actually broke cover a few weeks ago at the IDUG Europe conference in Rome. It's called DB2 pureScale and in my opinion it is the single most significant advance in the DB2 to LUW product in the last decade.
