IBM has unveiled an integrated data warehouse offering for Linux that combines software, server and storage technologies.
The Data Warehousing Balanced Configuration Unit for Linux combines IBM's DB2 Data Warehouse Edition database and eServer 326m running on either SuSE or Red Hat Linux with TotalStorage DS4800.
The offering is targeted at enterprise data warehouses. It is designed around modular nodes which IT departments can use to reduce design time and shorten deployment cycles as they add nodes to enlarge data warehouses over time.
"Our clients are increasingly evaluating Linux as the foundation for their fast growing and high performance data warehouse platforms," said Karen Parrish, vice president of IBM Business Intelligence Solutions.
