store, online and catalog), where
transactions from each channel are stored in separate fact
tables of a star schema-based
data model. The test involves 40
concurrent users, 28 running 70
short-running dashboard kind
of simple reports, 10 running 25
intermediate sales reports and
two users running five complex
data mining types of complex
reports. Running this mixed
workload for two hours and
measuring concurrent throughput for simple, intermediate and
complex reports provide 5.5x,
20x and 1.3x higher throughput
for the data mart running on DB2
11.1 BLU on Linux on IBM z13*
versus running on pre-integrated
competitor V5 eighth unit.
Further using list prices to
compute three-year total cost of
acquisition (including hardware,
software, maintenance, and
support and subscription costs),
it's 6 percent cheaper to run
the data mart on Linux on z13
than on the competitive system.
DB2 BLU is based on dynamic
in-memory columnar technology
that optimizes CPU and I/O for
ultimate throughput of mixed
analytics workload using some
unique capabilities such as
actionable compression, where
query computations can be
done on compressed data and
data skipping, where min and
max values of certain fields are
pre-computed in a synopsis table
and used to skip chunks of data
blocks that don't have the data
values in the where clause.

seamlessly connected to DB2 for
z/OS for deep analytics.
However, for data that resides
on Linux on z Systems, it
makes the most sense to keep

data in place and run operational and deep analytics on
the same platform benefitting
from co-location advantages
and best-of-breed in-memory
technologies supported on the
platform.

These two studies demonstrate
the value of running end-to-end
analytics on Linux on z Systems.
When the OLTP data originates
on z/OS*, it makes the most
sense to co-locate analytics
on z/OS using Spark on z/OS
