Will Linux be the next battleground in the relational database space? IDC predicted in a recent report that the market opportunity alone for relational database servers will top $3.4 billion in 2004.
So all eyes will be on IBM at next week's LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in New York, when it unveils the next version of its DB2 Universal Database. Designed to help corporate users build more scalable and reliable Linux-based clusters, it is code-named "Stinger."
With new capabilities such as the DB2 Partition Advisor, which can automatically partition and boost the performance and capacity of multiple databases spread over a Linux cluster, IBM says that Stinger will "alleviate administrators from the time-consuming task of fine-tuning multiple databases in piecemeal fashion."
Corporate and third-party developers wanting to preview the database, says IBM, can ask to participate starting Jan. 21 by going here.
