IBM has recently announced a new software technology called IBM DB2 pureScale which aims to address the need for high availability, high scalability and high transaction volume.

DB2 pureScale is a cluster based and shared-disk architecture providing both vertical and horizontal scalability. It also offers continuous availability through the use of IBM PowerHA technology, allowing systems to recover from node failures immediately.

Large volumes of OLTP transactions can be performed faster without requiring changes in the application.

PureScale will initially be available on Power systems in December 2009.
