“ The BLU Acceleration technology has some obvious benefits: It makes our analytical queries run 4-15x faster and decreases the size of our tables by a factor of 10x. But it’s when I think about all the things I don't have to do with BLU, it made me appreciate the technology even more: no tuning, no partitioning, no indexes, no aggregates. ”
-Andrew Juarez, Lead SAP Basis and DBA, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated
“ Our initial results using DB2 with BLU Acceleration were impressive; massive analytic query speed-up, up to 273x improvement. With the Shadow tables that are part of the DB2 Cancun Release, we can now leverage that great analytic performance in our transactional ODS and let DB2 do all the work for us. One database, one system, no extra effort on our part. ”

1Based on internal IBM testing of sample client analytic workloads comparing queries accessing row-based tables on DB2 10.1 vs. columnar tables on DB2 10.5 with BLU Acceleration. Performance improvement figures are cumulative of all queries in the workload. Individual results will vary depending on individual workloads, configurations and conditions.
