  8. 8. #IDUG Cost Reduction – Today • Ongoing focus on improving profitability and ruthlessly eliminating unnecessary costs • IT spending is a major cost component for all organisations • Gartner’s 2013 Worldwide IT Spending analysis showed growth rate of just 0.4% for 2013 • Managing hardware costs • Moore’s law is still alive and well as it approaches its 50th birthday • Compression can dramatically reduce DASD costs • Adaptive compression in DB2 for LUW V10 can yield spectacular gains • Further savings possible via actionable compression in BLU • Overall cost savings being partially offset by move to more expensive SSD devices (although they are getting cheaper too) • Virtualisation and consolidation technologies are helping to improve hardware utilisation rates • Linux on System z offers some intriguing possibilities here 8
  9. 9. #IDUG Cost Reduction – Today • Managing Software licence fees • MLC pricing on the mainframe means that CPU burned during peak period (4HRA) directly impacts software costs • Ongoing focus within DB2 for z/OS to drive down CPU consumption • DB2 code optimisation in DB2 10 (and now in DB2 11) • Increased use of System z speciality engines and hybrid solutions such as the IBM DB2 Analytic Accelerator • Aggressive new packaging options for DB2 for LUW • AWSE and AESE include lots of additional functionality such as compression, BLU, pureScale, etc • Linux on System z can offer major software licence savings • Managing people costs • Salary increases have been generally outstripping increase in overall IT spend, so we’re all consuming a greater proportion of the IT budget • From ALTER to Autonomics, it’s all about improving productivity and doing more with less 9
  10. 10. #IDUG Cost Reduction – Tomorrow • Signs that pressure is easing on overall IT budgets • Latest Gartner estimates show 3.2% annual increase for 2014, to $3.8 trillion • 6.9% increase in enterprise software spending, with CRM, DBMS and data management the major items • However, Gartner expects a renewed focus on implementing new IT systems which will consume budget • Current cost management pressures unlikely to reduce 10
  11. 11. #IDUG Cost Reduction – Tomorrow • Hardware • Moore’s Law under pressure, only has 6-8 years left before physics dictate fundamental shift from CMOS to other technologies • Photonics, quantum computers • Ongoing focus on reducing operational costs will continue to deliver benefits • Recent Intel POC submerged high-end servers in 3M’s dielectric “Novec Engineered Fluid” to increase server density and cut cooling costs by up to 95% • System z hardware approaching thermal limits for indirect cooling so mainframes may go this way too 11
  12. 12. #IDUG Cost Reduction – Tomorrow • Software Licence Fees • Increased offload to zIIP, IDAA and other speciality processors and hybrid solutions • But what happens when we approach 100% CP offload? • New MLC models to recognise the changing role of the mainframe • IBM announcement on 8th April 2014 for new model offering up to 60% reduction on processor capacity reported for Mobile transactions http://www- 03.ibm.com/press/uk/en/pressrelease/43619.wss • Practice of “bundling” likely to continue as a way of maintaining software revenues on distributed platforms • People Costs • Skills shortages likely to continue to increase people costs. See skills section later • Continued emphasis on autonomics, ease of use and productivity features 12
  13. 13. #IDUG High Availability – Today • Impact of down time in critical IT systems has never been higher • Revenue loss • Reputational damage • Remedial costs • Regulatory and Contract Compliance Impact • How much? • A 2011 Ponemon Institute report calculated average of $5,617 per minute for large US data centres • Amazon “went dark” for 49 minutes in Jan 2013, at estimated cost of $66,240 per minute • Unplanned outage is usually the most painful, but planned outage hurts too 13
  14. 14. #IDUG High Availability – Today • Relax, you’re working with IBM – DB2 on both platforms is in good shape for reducing unplanned outage • Data Sharing on DB2 for z/OS is mature and generally much better understood by customers than it used to be • “Gold standard” for continuous availability • DB2 11 for z/OS contains some valuable new performance enhancements • DB2 for LUW pureScale feature implements similar architecture • Included in AWSE and AESE • Until recently pureScale supported only on IBM POWER and System x servers, but as of DB2 10.1 FP2 or DB2 10.5 FP1, non-IBM x86 servers also supported 14
  15. 15. #IDUG High Availability – Today • Eliminating planned outage is an ongoing challenge, but news is generally good and improving all of the time • Schema change • Housekeeping • Preventative maintenance • Version upgrades 15
  16. 16. #IDUG High Availability – Tomorrow • Further data sharing and GDPS enhancements for DB2 for z/OS to re-open the gap with competitors • Continued expansion of dynamic schema change capabilities for LUW and z/OS • Online version upgrades • Further strides towards truly online version upgrades for DB2 for z/OS • First steps for pureScale 16
  17. 17. #IDUG In-Memory Computing – Today • Disk access speeds are increasing, but processor speeds are increasing at an even greater rate • Therefore, relative “cost” of I/O operations is getting bigger • Even new (expensive) SSDs are orders of magnitude slower than accessing processor storage • Caching data in memory avoids I/O • Improves elapsed time • Reduces CPU • Reduces operational cost • Allows novel access patterns to be used • Availability of NAND / flash memory reduces impact if I/O is required • SSD • Flash Express • Pricing is volatile/complicated, but memory is a one-off cost 17 DASD - Cache DASD - Disk Nanoseconds (10-9) <2 milliseconds (10-3) >5 milliseconds Buffer Pool
  18. 18. #IDUG In-Memory Computing – Today • OLTP • Today’s server platforms can cache large amounts of data in memory • zEC12 can support up to 3TB per CEC (1TB per LPAR) • High-end Intel-based servers support 6-8TB per server • Average deployed server memory is increasing on both mainframe and distributed platforms • Specific steps being taken to allow DB2 customers to exploit larger memory footprints for OLTP workloads • PGFIX(YES) in DB2 9 • PGSTEAL(NONE) and high-performance DBATs in DB2 10 • 1MB / 2GB page frames in DB2 10 / DB2 11 • Large (16MB) and Huge (16GB, AIX only) OS page support in DB2 for LUW 18
  19. 19. #IDUG In-Memory Computing – Today • Analytics • DB2 10.5 for LUW (AWSE & AESE) includes “BLU” technology - a collection of novel technologies for optimising analytic queries, including some specific in-memory techniques • Columnar data store with patented dynamic in-memory optimisation for data prefetch and retention – “treats DRAM as disk” • Data held in compressed format in memory, while still allowing joins and predicate evaluation – “actionable compression” • Very impressive query performance across a wide variety of analytic (and even some “heavy” OLTP) workloads • 10x – 25x elapsed time improvement is common • Ability to more fully utilise all of the available memory / CPU in a given server configuration 19
  20. 20. #IDUG In-Memory Computing – Tomorrow • Future zEnterprise machines likely to significantly increase maximum memory capacity per CEC / LPAR • Cost per GB likely to continue with general downward trend • Average installed memory per CEC will continue to increase • DB2 for z/OS may page-fix buffer pools by default • More common customer use of large / huge page frames • Page fixing and large page frame support for other DB2 storage areas (e.g. EDM pool) • Possible use of pageable 1MB page frames supported by zEC12 • Increased autonomic capability, reduction of memory-specific system parameters • DB2 BLU will continue to evolve • Big push just starting on DB2 BLU in the cloud 20
  21. 21. #IDUG Database Commoditisation – Today • We’ve always lived in a heterogeneous world, but perception of databases as a commodity is increasing • Many reasons, including • The ubiquity of SQL • The rise of packaged solutions • Java (JDBC, frameworks) • RDBMS vendor compatibility / migration initiatives • SOA • Skills availability and support team size • The result • Lack of management awareness of business value of a specific database • Support teams and developers working with many database systems • Lowest common denominator approach 21
  22. 22. #IDUG Database Commoditisation – Today • Fight back! • Make it your mission to keep your management aware of the unique business value of DB2 • If you have to be a Jack of all trades, at least try to become a master of one • Guess which one? • Take pragmatic approach to lowest common denominator issue • Fight the battles worth winning • Accept the rest 22
  23. 23. #IDUG DB2 Skills – Today • DB2 is getting more complex / capable in every release • At the same time, IBM is trying to make it easier to use / understand • Great until something needs fixing “under the hood” • DB2 skills demographic is changing • Source: My own observations only – no scientific backup! 23 Skill Level %ofDB2Technicians Skill Level %ofDB2Technicians
