DB2 9 contains innovative features for delivering information on demand and scaling databases to new levels. The Table (Range) Partitioning capabilities in DB2 9 provide a number of advantages including better query performance, improved large table manageability, and dynamic data roll-in/roll-out. The Large Row Identifier (RID) allows for creation of tables and indexes that are terabytes in size. Together these features enable the ability to create and easily manage databases with virtually unlimited capacity, and are especially beneficial in large data-warehousing environments.
Join Sal Vella, VP of DB2 Development, and Matt Huras, IBM Distinguished Engineer and lead DB2 Architect, for an in-depth look at the new Table Partitioning and Large RID support in DB2 9 on Linux, UNIX, and Windows.
