A crash course on Db2 pureScale and Advantages

Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Outside of anyone in the IBM Toronto Lab, I'm pretty sure Kent Collins is the world's foremost expert on Db2 pureScale. He's been working with pureScale since the beginning (remember V9.8? ). Reach him by twitter, or his email is at the end of the PDF handout. If you are using pureScale, or thinking about it, you're likely going to refer to Kent's presentation dozens of times.
