Triton Consulting Confirmed as Speakers at the UKCMG Forum 2010

The UKCMG have announced details of the annual UKCMG Forum, taking place on 13th October 2010 at the Novotel London St Pancras. Triton Consulting are delighted to confirm that they have been selected to run a session on DB2 pureScale.

This one-day conference will include three tracks with elective sessions covering Capacity Management, Performance and Service Management. Alongside the conference there will be an exhibition and networking event.

Triton Consulting will be running a session at 10am on Wednesday 13th October called "Pure Genius: How to get Mainframe-like scalability & availability for midrange DB2". During this session, Julian Stuhler - IBM Data Champion, IBM Gold Consultant and Director at Triton Consulting will provide an introduction to DB2 pureScale and an overview of the architecture. He will be joined by James Gill who is a Principal Consultant at Triton. James is heading up an R&D project on DB2 pureScale and recently spent a week in the IBM Labs in Boeblingen Germany to gain practical experience of working in a DB2 pureScale environment and testing for scalability and resilience. James will be sharing details of the team's own experiences of implementation and findings from the work in the labs.

"We are delighted to be involved in this year's UKCMG Forum. This is a great event with a fully packed agenda including some really interesting speakers. Our DB2 pureScale team are really looking forward to sharing some insights into this exciting new technology from IBM" Laura Hood, Marketing Manager, Triton Consulting.

For the last 15 years, mainframe DB2 has been the industry leading platform for availability & scalability thanks to Data Sharing, the High Availability solution for DB2 for z/OS. Technologies such as clustering have tried to match mainframe levels of scalability and resilience for midrange databases but require application changes as data is not shared across clusters. With the DB2 pureScale feature, IBM has provided a solution which enables customers to achieve mainframe-like scalability and availability for Midrange DB2.

“This is the single most significant technology improvement that IBM has introduced to the midrange market in years. By utilizing the many years of mainframe data sharing experience, DB2 pureScale will revolutionise the way organisations are able to manage their workload; achieve scalability and continuous availability” says Julian Stuhler, Service Delivery Director, Triton Consulting.

The UKCMG Free Forum is an event for the IT industry designed to help professionals to keep up to date with key industry trends, developments and best practice. The event is an ideal opportunity for networking with industry peers.
