IBM dashDB: Enterprise MPP Service
July 8, 2016
IBM dashDB Enterprise MPP is a high performance, massively scalable cloud data warehouse service, fully managed by IBM. It enables simple and speedy information management, analytics, and business intelligence operations in the cloud. It offers the same ease of use as other dashDB configurations, but with the ability to handle much larger data sets.
dashDB’s massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture is a networked cluster of servers working in parallel to speed up query fulfillment. In the cluster, multiple servers work on the same query simultaneously, and processing at each server is parallelized across all the CPUs. Furthermore, the dashDB MPP cluster provides more storage capacity for each data set. The resulting performance boost saves you valuable time and resources as you extend the reach of your data warehouse in the cloud.
Because dashDB MPP is fully managed by IBM, users are free to store, manipulate and analyze their data without the added complexity of network cluster maintenance and database management.
