DB2 - the secret database

Wednesday 18th January, 2006
The Register published a fantastic insight into DB2 today, much of which I wasn't aware of.

Apparently "more structured data is stored in DB2 than in any other database engine". It also holds the speed record, in terms of transactions a minute. "At 3.2 million transactions per minute the system would be able to support one purchase from every person on the planet every four days". Oracle is apparently only half that speed.

So how come nobody seems to use it? Read more on the Register:
