IBM Announcement ENUSZP19-0081IBM Db2 V11.5 delivers enhancements to help automate data management, eliminate ETL, and support artificial intelligence data workloads
(IBM Europe Software Announcement ZP19-0261, dated June 4, 2019)

The IBM Db2 family of hybrid data management solutions is built on an intelligent common SQL engine that is designed for scalability and flexibility and to run on premises, in private, and on any public cloud. Db2 uses open source technology and provides a singular view of data, enabling businesses to automate data management, eliminate ETL, and support artificial intelligence (AI) data workloads.

IBM Db2 V11.5 offers database efficiency, simplicity, and reliability in the form of new features and enhancements that address a wide variety of business requirements. Robust enterprise security, simplified installation and deployment, improved usability and adoption, a streamlined upgrade process, enhancements to large databases, and improvements to BLU Acceleration are the key benefits of this technology:

  • 4K sector support
  • Improved CF recovery time
  • New monitoring metrics
  • Automatic Recompress feature for tables
  • Call level interface (CLI) driver enhancements

Other enhancements to the IBM Hybrid Data Management Platform include:

  • New version of IBM Db2 Event Store 2.0.
  • Application compatibility, standardized API, flexible licensing, and operational compatibility with the Db2 family (now part of the same Common SQL Engine capabilities).

One of the most significant impacts for Db2 customers is the introduction of three new editions that will gradually replace the existing editions from summer 2019. The Db2 portfolio will be based on the Db2 Lite Edition, Db2 Standard Edition and Db2 Advanced Edition. Besides Authorized User Licensing for non-production environments, Virtual Processor Client Licensing will be an unified licensing metric.

IBM Db2 Warehouse on Cloud new Flex Plan - IBM Announcement 18-0072 (2018-01)

ENUSZP18-0072IBM Db2 Warehouse on Cloud adds a new plan offering
independent, on-demand scaling of storage and compute,
enhanced backup and restore, and significant improvements in high availability
(IBM Europe Announcement ZP18-0072, dated January 30, 2018)

Overview:

IBM Db2 Warehouse on Cloud is a fully managed, enterprise-grade cloud data warehouse service that enables true hybrid data warehousing. To complement the existing SMP and MPP plans, a Flex plan is available that offers the performance of MPP with greater flexibility for consumption and deployment of storage and compute resources. The Flex plan packages three key capabilities: independent scaling of storage and compute, self-service backup and restore, and significant improvements in high availability.

With the Flex plan, clients can fully customize their data warehouse, with the option to increase compute cores during heavy database use. Once the extra demand on the warehouse has subsided, clients can scale back down to reduce their costs. In addition, the Flex plan offers immediate storage expansion, so clients can start with the initial storage they need and increase capacity with a few clicks at a later date to accommodate data growth.

The new Flex plan also gives clients more control over their database backups. With self-service backups, clients can keep up to seven backups of their database. They can choose the time of day their backups are taken, and restore from one of these backups whenever they choose. Significant improvements in service availability have also been made through the IBM Cloud Container Service.

The enterprise plan provides robust performance on bare metal nodes for more demanding application workloads. Both plans offer differentiated capabilities when compared with competitive offerings.

IBM DB2 on Cloud provides the following OLTP capabilities:

  • Accelerated and simplified deployment. Takes advantage of IBM DB2 without the need for an on-premises infrastructure.
  • Native encryption to ensure control of data. Leverage the benefits of infrastructure as a service with the confidence of knowing your data is encrypted in flight, while in use, and at rest.
  • Optimized performance and enhanced security. Experience speed and reliability with a private virtual machine or dedicated bare-metal.
  • A solution sized to meet your business demands. Keep infrastructure costs in line with the changing needs of the business with four preconfigured sizes.
  • Ability to migrate on-premises Oracle databases to DB2 in the cloud, providing SQL compatibility support for Oracle Database applications.

IBM-DB2-10.5-BLU-Acceleration-(ENUSZP13-0262-23.04.2013)

IBM DB2 10.5 with BLU Acceleration
the multi-workload database software for the era of big data, improves performance while helping to reduce storage costs
(IBM Announcement ENUSZP13-0262 - 23.04.2013)

IBM DB2 10.5 for Linux , UNIX , and Windows delivers powerful new capabilities and streamlined packaging that can help reduce database costs while improving performance, reliability, and flexibility. DB2 10.5 for Linux , UNIX , and Windows offers:

  • Analytics at the speed of thought - New in-memory hybrid technology yields faster analytics without the costs or limits of in-memory only systems.
  • Always available transactions - Boost operations and decrease costly downtime with improved availability and enhanced disaster recovery up to thousands of kilometers.
  • Future-proof versatility - Expand and modernize applications and infrastructure with new mobile capabilities; work even more seamlessly with applications originally written for Oracle Database.
  • Unprecedented affordability - Take advantage of analytics at the speed of thought, always available transactions, and future-proof versatility - all in one product! No extras are needed.
  • Easy choices - Fast, reliable, affordable, future-proof capabilities in six easy packages are tailored for your business needs by features and capacity.

Business strategies are driving applications that are more diverse than ever. Growth and innovation strategies push the need to explore big data, analytics, mobile, cloud, and social. At the same time, funds are not limitless and data management investments must be fast, reliable, affordable, future-proof, and versatile - even multi-purpose. That is why DB2 10.5 with new BLU Acceleration is a game changer for clients looking to accomplish more with less.

Analytics at the speed of thought. DB2's new BLU Acceleration feature is in-memory hybrid column-organized table technology designed to yield faster analytics from data warehousing without the costs or limits of in-memory only systems. It speeds analytics and reporting with a combination of in-memory and column store data retrieval, maximized CPU processing, and data skipping that allows for faster input/output.

Always available transactions. Stuff happens. Keep your business up and running with DB2's pureScale clustering technology. It helps to ensure your transaction processing is highly available and extremely scalable no matter what life brings. It is designed to avoid both planned and unplanned outages and provide disaster recovery up to thousands of kilometers, which means virtually no costly downtime even with maintenance. Perform maintenance during the week, or add a node during application testing, and users will never know the difference. With high availability disaster recovery, and online fix pack updates as well as application transparency, managing your data just got a whole lot easier.

Future-proof versatility. The addition of mobile and enhancements to NoSQL capabilities allow clients to expand and modernize applications now and ensure IT infrastructure is ready for the future. Expanded Oracle database compatibility continues DB2's legacy of infrastructure flexibility and differentiates DB2 from stack-only vendors' products.

Unprecedented affordability. Unlike in-memory alternatives, DB2 10.5 with new BLU Acceleration uses an in-memory hybrid column-organized table approach. Placing only the most-used data in memory means money is not wasted on RAM for data rarely accessed. Many in-memory analytics accelerators come only as an appliance, forcing you to buy costly hardware you may not need. DB2 with BLU Acceleration offers flexibility to deploy in-memory speed on infrastructure you already have.

Easy choices. Take advantage of fast, reliable, affordable, future-proof capabilities in six easy packages. Access the functionality you need, with no "cherry picking" required. DB2 10.5 editions are tailored for your business needs by features and capacity.  (...)
