IBM Db2 is the database that offers enterprise-wide solutions handling high-volume workloads. It is optimized to deliver industry-leading performance while lowering costs. DB2 maintains itself very well. The Task Scheduler component of DB2 allows for statistics gathering and reorganization of indexes and tables without user interaction or without specific knowledge of cron or Windows Task Scheduler / Scheduled jobs. Its use of ASYNC, NEARSYNC, and SYNC HADR (High Availability Disaster Recovery) models gives you a range of options for maintaining a very high uptime ratio. Failover from PRIMARY to SECONDARY becomes very easy with just a single command or windowed mouse click. Tablespace usage and automatic storage help keep data segmented while at rest, making partitioning easier. Ability to run commands via CLI (Command Line Interface) or via Control Center / Data Studio (DB2 10.x+) makes administration a breeze. The Db2 Advanced Recovery Feature helps users meet the increasing expectations of partners and customers. The IBM Db2 Advanced Recovery Feature combines three Db2 tools for advanced database backup, recovery and data extraction. These tools help improve data availability, accelerate crucial admin tasks and mitigate the risk of downtime. IBM's RDBMS, Db2, offers a configuration called pureScale, which can operate on both x86 and Power systems. pureScale enables Db2 to operate as a shared storage cluster, interacting with the application as a single database system. Because Db2 pureScale is simply a configuration of Db2, existing users can adopt it without converting data or reorganizing the database in any way. Existing Db2 applications will run without alteration and require no changes in order to take advantage of the scalability of pureScale.
