Big Idea 3: Multiply the Power of the CPU
Hardware optimisation using Parallel Vector Processing (which is a combination of Multi-core and SIMD (Single Instruction Multiple Data) parallelism) to boost performance of all data types found in Big Data. More specifically, using hardware instructions, DB2 with BLU Acceleration can apply a single instruction to many data elements simultaneously by leveraging SIMD parallelism found on the latest chips. DB2 with BLU Acceleration pays careful attention to physical cores of the server so that queries on BLU tables are automatically core-parallelised.
