In 2008, IBM introduced in-memory database technology known as solidDB. This presentation will cover the key capabilities of IBM solidDB - micro-second response time, high transaction throughput, and instant failover and how those capabilities address the real-time requirements for data access in key DB2 markets including financial services, healthcare, retail, and communications. The presentation will also provide details about how solidDB in-memory cache complements DB2 to accelerate response times and increase transaction throughput, achieving extreme speed for data residing in DB2. Use cases will be explored. There will also be good opportunities for technical Q&A. Our speakers will be Sal Vella, Vice President of Development for Linux, Unix and Windows and Business Intelligence and Ari Valtanen, Director of solidDB Technology (CTO). Ari comes to IBM from the acquisition of Solid Information Technology, where he was Co-Founder, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. As a member of the founding team at Solid, Valtanen spent 7 years as an Architect in core product development in Helsinki, Finland. He will be speaking with us from the lab in Helsinki.
