Most of the enterprises, currently, are concerned about Data Storage because it involves huge cost and overhead. Data Lifecycle Management(DLM) solution provides a way so that less critical data can be classified and move to a tiered storage infrastructure.
In order to implement DLM solution, in June, IBM unveiled in memory database solidDB for DB2 and Informix Data Server. SolidDB is known worldwide to deliver data with extreme speed and extreme availability. IBM acquired solidDB from Solid Information Technology in last January and wants to launch it as a product for the enterprise. IBM’s solidDB boosts the performance by 10x and unlike the Oracle product, solidDB will become a performance booster for all major enterprise databases by the end of the year, including Oracle, Sybase and Microsoft SQL Server as well as IBM’s own systems.
The name of the new product is going to be IBM solidDB Universal Cache when it will be launched soon. Although, IBM didn’t announce the price of the new product but the pricing on its predecessor DB2 and IDS product is $30,000 per CPU core, as per IBM.
IBM will also revamp its Optim data management portfolio at its “Information on Demand User Group” conference in Las Vegas. Additionally, the Rational Data Management tool, Data Architect, will be revamped and renamed in the fourth quarter to become InfoSphere Data Architect and part of the Optim portfolio.
