Somers, N.Y., March 31, 2000 – IBM announced the general availability of DB2 Universal Database for its Intel processor-based NUMA-Q servers. This powerful combination creates an ideal foundation for e-business and business intelligence solutions that require very high performance for multiterabyte databases.
