IBM® DB2® for Linux®, UNIX® and Windows® is a next generation data platform for the business that never stops. By combining always-on transactional processing with analytics at breakthrough speed, it simplifies the IT landscape to deliver better performance with fewer resources. Designed for extremely fast time-to-value and operational simplicity, it can be deployed on-premises or on the cloud for maximum flexibility.
This release of DB2 software includes many new and enhanced capabilities for both transactional and analytic workloads. Shadow tables maintain column-based versions of row-based operational data, which allows you to perform extremely fast operational reporting within the transaction processing environment. Other enhancements include greater support for high availability, optimizations for the IBM POWER8™ processor, easier migration of Oracle data marts to DB2 with BLU Acceleration, and greater support for SAP environments.
Download this trial, which has all features enabled, and evaluate DB2 for a period of 90 days.
Please note: The DB2 data server trial comes in two packages. One package contains the DB2 server trial, which is designed for transaction workloads. The second package contains the DB2 with BLU Acceleration (warehouse) trial, which is designed for data warehousing and analytic workloads. As you proceed through the process, you will have the option to download the package that is right for your needs.
