Executive Summary

XML has become the standard for data exchange, Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs), message-based transaction processing and much more. With the introduction of IBM DB2 pureXML in DB2 9, benefits include superior XML data-management capabilities, including XML storage, indexing, querying, updating and optional schema validation. This paper describes how the latest version of DB2, namely DB2 9.7, when combined with an IBM BladeCenter JS43 server, delivers outstanding XML transaction-processing results. The tests include XML document-insertion tests and multiuser-throughput tests - with various numbers of users over 1 TB of raw XML data. Traditionally, BladeCenter servers are well-known for their ease-of-use, energy efficiency, scalability and manageability, but often overlooked when selecting database servers.
