Ready to Access DB2 for z/OS Data on Solid-State Drives

An IBM Redguide publication


The dollar-to-data ratio of solid-state drives (SSDs) is still high when compared with the dollar-to-data ratio of traditional spinning disks in the enterprise storage market; however, the SSDs ratio is expected to improve with investments in the not too distant future. By avoiding seeks and rotational delays, SSDs have the potential to improve the performance of disk storage. This IBM® Redguide™ publication provides a broad understanding of SSDs and shares several early experiences in a laboratory setting using SSDs to improve the performance when accessing DB2 for z/OS® data.
