IBM® Db2 Analytics Accelerator for z/OS®, V7.1 delivers two new deployment options

IBM® Db2® Analytics Accelerator for z/OS®, V7.1 delivers two new deployment options on either the recently announced IBM Integrated Analytics System or directly on the new IBM Z mainframe. Both of these deployment options are based on the premier IBM analytical engine, Db2 Warehouse software. This guarantees a uniform experience that allows you to invest once to enable your applications and workloads for the Accelerator and then to transition easily between deployment options.

o    1) Delivers support for the newly announced IBM Integrated Analytics System: A pre-configured offering that includes hardware (compute, storage, and networking) and software for easy deployment, management, and high performance.

o    Secure, flexible and elastic data storage that is both easy to deploy and easy to manage.

  • 2) Delivers support for the newly announced IBM Z mainframe, within Integrated Facility for Linux® (IFL) processors, and without the need to attach a separate appliance. This Accelerator on IBM Z deployment option allows for:

o    Deeper integration with the IBM Z infrastructure. This offers a unified homogeneity of service, support and operations and deeper integration with operational processes, for example, for disaster recovery.

  • Flexible capacity to respond to peak analytic workload requirements while meeting SLAs.Allows you to start with an Accelerator environment deployed on IBM Z and seamlessly grow into a larger IBM Integrated Analytics System deployment, as needed.

The Db2 Analytics Accelerator for z/OS, V5.1 integrates the IBM Z infrastructure with IBM PureData® System for Analytics, powered by IBM Netezza® technology. This version continues to provide a wide range of use cases, including query acceleration, Incremental Update, Accelerator-only tables, in-database transformation, in-database analytics and the High Performance Storage Saver (HPSS). It also benefits from the development of new functions, such as:

  • True Hybrid transactional and analytical processing (True HTAP)
  • Federation access support
  • ADD column support
  • Multi row insert enablement
