In our first Confessions of a DB2 Geek podcast we chat to two of our DB2 experts about pureScale and what this important new release means for organisations running DB2 on midrange platforms.
An ideal fit for the retail sector, pureScale is going to allow organisations to increase capacity when they need it at the really busy times like Christmas and the January sales and scale back at times of less demand. Our DB2 LUW expert Clair says “If you’re a retailer with a high volume online transaction environment then pureScale is going to be absolutely ideal for you”
Just how important is this release to the midrange market?
“For those needing true 24/7 availability this is an enormous release and has plugged a gaping hole that has been in the architecture of DB2 on midrange for some time.” James Gill, DB2 z/OS Expert
