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.

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.
