DB2 pureScale

December 28, 2012

Are you running DB2 pureScale? If so, let me know. DB2 pureScale first announced in DB2 9.8 uses shared disk, a cluster facility, InfiniBand and RDMA. I originally predicted the use of this technology in my book, DB2 for Linux, Unix and Windows in 2003 and have seen it come to pass with 9.8. I predict that DB2 pureScale is the wave of the future for DB2 and it will eventually result in more migrations of DB2 for z/OS to DB2 pureScale on LUW. However, due to requirement for a new infrastructure (InfiinBand, RDMA NICs, IBM Hardware) the adoption has been quite slow. This will change but I’m not sure what the tipping point will be.
