Special guest Klaas Brant, IBM DB2 GOLD Consultant

Which solution is best? DB2 pureScale, Oracle RAC, or SQL Server Clusters?

In episode #36, special guest Klaas Brant, IBM DB2 GOLD Consultant and owner KBCE b.v., shared with us his expertise on database high availability solutions. High Availability was defined and discussed, then Klaas took us on a deep dive into DB2 9.8 pureScale, Oracle RAC, and SQL Server Clusters. His animated slides did a brilliant job of illustrating how these technologies work. In the end, Klaas convinced me of pureScale's superiority and exposed the scalability flaws of RAC.
