IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator: "a DB2 Query Performance Revolution..."

In episode z16 our special guest Namik Hrle (an IBM Distinguished Engineer from the IBM Boeblingen Lab in Germany ) gives us a deep dive into the new technology called "IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator" aka IDAA. This specialized DB2 engine is based on a Netezza appliance and can boost your (data warehouse) queries significantly. Missed the show? Keep reading how to download the replay!

Show Host Klaas Brant Commentary

On 29 November IBM released a new DB2 component called IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator or short IDAA. Only a few days old and already a major topic in the DB2Night Show! Namik Hrle, one of the architects of this technology, explains how well integrated this Accelerator is into DB2. The requestor is not even aware of the fact that the DB2 optimizer is deciding to route the query to the hardware box. Namik shows how they did it and what the "secret sauce" is (he explains the hardware). This is a show you have to see! And if you wonder what that weird intro music is… it is 5 December. Today Sinterklaas will ride with his horse over the roofs of all the housing bring gifts to the children in Holland.
