    This IBM Redbooks publication explains the benefits of Business Intelligence solutions using DB2 for Linux on zSeries. We discuss several studies done at IBM zSeries Teraplex Integration Center to demonstrate how the latest features of the zSeries hardware and z/VM 4.2 operating environment extend the value proposition for consolidating data marts on DB2 for Linux for zSeries.

    The book describes fast data transfer using HiperSocket connections, investigates scalability and performance issues in the context of data mart population, data mart refresh, data mart joins, intelligent resource management of zSeries under z/VM, and application deployment. We evaluate DB2 V7 latest utilities and DB2 federated database distributed queries.

    The book also includes functional tests of OLAP tools such as Dimensional Insight.
