What's New in DB2 LUW V11.1 - Overview

Special Guests:
Matt Huras,
Chief Architect DB2 LUW

Berni Schiefer,
IBM Fellow

97% of our audience learned something! A new version of DB2 LUW is born! V11.1 will be generally available mid-June 2016. Almost 75% of our HUGE live studio audience indicated that they were very excited about the new features and capabilities becoming available in V11. V11 includes many enhancements for BLU, Analytics, OLTP, pureScale, security, SQL, and more! Please learn from, and enjoy, the replay...

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Matt and Berni really don't need an introduction - most everyone knows them from IDUG or IBM conferences. I really enjoyed hosting them as our guests because you can hear their enthusiasm and excitement in their voices. No doubt, they, and the rest of their LUW team members, have a lot to be proud of in this new version. Personally, I'm thrilled that BLU Column Organized Tables can now be used with DPF, EEE, or MPP (MPP is the current favorite IBM acronym) multi-partitioned databases. It would have been nice if this capability was offered in V10.5, but I gather this markedly improved performance capability is deserving of a new version number.

Matt and Berni would like to clarify the announcement for end of DB2 9.7 and 10.1 support. Support for 9.7 and 10.1 will end September of 2017, not 2016 as previously tweeted by some in our DB2 community. Whew!!! Okay everyone, hurry up, you've got 16 months! You'll also be happy to learn that there is an upgrade path directly from 9.7 to 11.1.

The goal of this V11.1 Overview show was to paint the big picture of "What's New." We have upcoming shows that take deeper dives into the details of V11.1 new features and functions. Make sure you sign up for these shows! Do it now! The links are right here...
