The rate of increase in database size and response-time requirements has outpaced advancements in processor and mass storage technology. One way to satisfy the increasing demand for processing power and input/output bandwidth in database applications is to have a number of processors, loosely or tightly coupled, serving database requests concurrently. Technologies developed during the last decade have made commercial parallel database systems a reality, and these systems have made an inroad into the stronghold of traditionally mainframe-based large database applications. This paper describes the DB2® Parallel Edition product that evolved from a prototype developed at IBM Research in Hawthorne, New York, and now is being jointly developed with the IBM Toronto laboratory.
