Architecture Matter

The Right Architecture Any Way You Choose to Scale It

In my previous blog post, “Power Systems Delivers the Balance Today’s Businesses Need,” I talked about how IBM Power Systems is a fit-for-purpose architecture with a balanced design that adapts to your business needs instead of making the business adapt to the technology.

Implementing 'Dirty Reads'

I was recently asked about "dirty reads." This term refers to setting an application's SELECT statement to avoid taking locks while reading and processing uncommitted data.

Of course, the benefit of doing this is to reduce CPU costs and reap potentially significant savings. As the name implies, however, dirty reads comes with a risk. It can lead to failed transactions due to discrepancies in the data. So before implementing dirty reads, you must understand how your data is being used and if discrepancies can be tolerated.
