A couple of months ago, IBM announced a DB2 10.5 offering called BLU Acceleration. With customers looking to analyze, slice, dice, puree, and chop big data from social media all the way down to traditional ERP and CRM data sources, BLU ("Big data, Lightning fast, Ultra-easy") effectively optimizes DB2 for running large in-memory analytical jobs and drives down time to usable results at, according to IBM, the "speed of thought." On June 26, IBM announced via press release a number of vendor and customer testimonials about BLU Acceleration, emphasizing the business results they've seen with the product that's now generally available.
