What do you like most about IBM Db2 Database?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
I like that its true active-active. For example, if there are two instances within a cluster, we can take one of them down and there's no failover or switch over. There's no primary and secondary, it's true active-active. We can take one side down and we can upgrade that with new maintenance or a new version, obviously testing coexistence beforehand, without impacting the business.
IBM Db2 Database has good performance.
Your iOS, your throughputs, your performance cycles, you cannot touch it with Microsoft or with Oracle scalability-wise. That is far and away the most scalable systems and the highest performing systems of the set of them.
Reliable, robust with great features.
The solution has very good data compression of up to 50%. For example, if you have 50 terabytes of data, it can be reduced to 25 terabytes.
The solution is a very stable relational database and has integration with legacy systems. It is a great product.
Db2 Database has given us good results since we have started to use it. We predominantly use IBM hardware, and this is one of the reasons why we started to use Db2 Database.
Db2 Database has a very good HADR capability. High availability resilience is also good in this solution. It also has pureScale, which allows you to upgrade one node to get very good and high-level resilience. If you are using a database on five nodes, you can take one node down, upgrade that, and let that node up. You can then bring the second node down, upgrade that, and so on.
it is very stable and runs smoothly once it is deployed and it is almost maintenance-free.
The most valuable feature is PowerPC support.
We are dealing with millions of transactions a month and the performance is very good.
The solution is easy to install and simple to maintain. The most valuable aspect of the solution is its general user-friendliness for users of all kinds.
Very good for performance and scalability.
IBM Db2 was much cheaper as a package than using other products. This is because IBM supplied a package with its product. It's an application. So it was much more efficient and a stronger competitor in that regard.
When you submit a ticket the response time is quick.
We had a crash of the backup system and the IBM DB2 was always up and consistent. It's robust, and for us, it was always up and running.
The self-management and optimization features are probably the best on the market
The solution is very stable, in both hardware and database.
The most valuable features of this solution are security and stability.
The scalability and availability of this solution are the most valuable features.
The most valuable feature of this solution is the integration with other IBM products.
Some of the most valuable features are the scaling from a small very cheap installation to a very large enterprise installation. In addition, the backups and assistance are good.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
