DB2 for Linux Clustering Scales to 1,000 Nodes

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From ADTmag]

IBM this week used the LinuxWorld stage to unveil a new implementation of its mainstay relational database -- DB2 for Linux Clustering. The new DB2 implementation can scale from two to 1,000 nodes, IBM officials said.

The solution runs on rack mode on the IBM eServer x Series platform.

IBM first demonstrated the DB2 version last year, but observers noted that this week's proclamation by Scott Handy, Linux solutions marketing director for the IBM Software Group, marks the first time the company claimed 1,000-node performance. IBM engineers have tested the new implementation on systems running SAP, WebSphere and Tivoli, Handy said.
