A PDF handout is available so you can copy/paste Pavan's SQL! Watch our replay and learn...

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Once upon a time, way back in the early 90's, it was called DB2 EEE. Then it was called DPF (Data Partitioning Facility). Now IBM wants to call it MPP (Massively Parallel Processing). Changing names helps IBM keep documentation writers employed and gives them the opportunity to possibly charge you more for licenses. But, by whatever name it is called, DB2 for LUW DPF/MPP is massively scalable and wicked fast. Multiple servers, potentially having multiple logical partitions on each, all work together in parallel, in a shared nothing architecture, to compute answers to SQL queries incredibly fast. There are nuances and differences to administering a database like this, and Pavan does a great job of explaining differences and things you need to be aware of. The timing of this presentation is excellent because DB2 LUW V11.1 is now supporting BLU column organized tables in a DPF/MPP database. Cheers to your success!
