The best of both worlds
The IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator is a workload optimized appliance add-on enabling the integration of business insights into operational processes.
The Analytics Accelerator combines the System z Quality of Service with Netezza technology to accelerate complex queries in a highly secure and available environment. Superior performance and scalability with rapid appliance deployment provides an ideal solution for complex analysis.
Demo: See System z with the Analytics Accelerator in action in a side-by-side comparison
This demo compares the business intelligence query performance of IBM System z running DB2 for z/OS and the IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator with that of a competitor's data warehouse system, for a variety of intermediate and complex reports.
Although the queries are submitted over a standard JDBC connection directly to DB2 for z/OS, System z redirects them automatically and transparently to the Analytics Accelerator. Only the records required to satisfy the queries are accessed, eliminating excess I/O and greatly improving performance.
The net result of this design is that, with the DB2 Analytics Accelerator, System z performs queries much faster than this competitor, finishing from 7x to 11x faster than the competitive environment--even when the competitive system was given a head start.
