IBM Hybrid Transaction Analytic Processing HTAP
Learn how customers are using HTAP to eliminate analytic latency and data synchronization issues to transform and simplify information management infrastructure. For years IT customers have been told that online transaction processing (OLTP) and analytics couldn’t co-exist on the same platform. This led to costly and complex regimes to move OLTP data to a different platform for analytics. With HTAP, the barriers to near real-time analytics are removed amid significant reductions in IT expenses and complexity risk.
The concept of Hybrid Transaction/Analytic Processing was coined by Gartner. IBM implements HTAP in two ways:
- IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator (IDAA) for DB2 for z/OS data (using Netezza hardware)
- DB2 BLU Acceleration – DB2 for Linux, Unix, Windows (a software-only implementation)
