Redbook Solution Guide: Faster DB2 Performance with IBM FlashSystem

A so-called IBM Redbook Solution Guide about using flash memory for DB2 has been published. It gives an overview about how and where performance could be improved by using an IBM FlashSystem and provides some test results. The short article also has many links to background material. It is not a deep article on that topic, but a good introduction into possible performance gains and when to consider investing into flash memory instead of an entire new system.
