Platform Hosting - Database - DB2 (LUW)


IBM DB2 is supported across the Linux, Unix, and Windows (LUW) operating systems, fluidly adapting to changing needs while integrating with multiple platforms, languages, and workloads. DB2 is able to adapt and grow without constant reinvestment.

Adaptive Compression

Savings in storage, no more reorgs to compress tables, improve buffer pool usage, reduce I/O request to read the same amount of data and deliver better performance

Continuous Data Ingest

Load large data sets using CDI without sacrificing performance, concurrency and/or recoverability

Multi-temperature storage

Lower storage cost, efficient storage manage and consistent database performance

The following are included in the DB2 LUW service:

  • Installation, upgrades, patches, fixes, and standard configuration of the database software
  • Incident resolution associated with application configuration changes
  • Contract management and licensing for DB2 software
  • Assistance with requests for database restores
  • Monitoring of free disk space
  • Alert when disk space is below threshold levels determined by the customer
  • Maintenance of the database and log backups
  • Monitoring and modifications of the DB2 software
  • Review and recommendations of optional configurations that may enhance capacity and performance requirements
  • Maintenance software/configurations
  • Resolution of database system problems or facilitation of vendor support for issues through authorized escalation processes
