Your Guide to the Latest Windows Server Product Information
Pretty cool stuff!
From the IBM webpage:
DB2 UDB is the world's fastest database with the #1 TPC-C benchmark in the world that delivered performance over 2.7 times faster than the nearest competitor. Moreover, DB2 UDB V8.2 has just published the fastest TPC-C result on 8-way Intel® Itanium® 2 running 64-bit Window Server 2003. DB2's strong performance advantages are reflected across all platforms supported by DB2 UDB.

Of course there's an unwritten rule about database speed (and which is why I believe every company, including Microsoft, refuse to let people publish database benchmarks)...
Speed is inversely related to integrity & quality.
Although this isn't absoluetly true, improvements could always be made that do increase database performance without hurting integrity.
