Multiple data sources, deployments, and uses necessitate that databases be part of an integrated data platform that brings all data together, providing greater context upon which to base analytics and easing access to different roles within the enterprise require.
In addition, containerizing database functionalities allows them to be deployed as microservices wherever needed alongside machine learning and data science capabilities. Today, 57% of organizations use containers with 89% expected to by 2021.
IBM Db2 databases benefit from containerization through IBM Cloud Pak for Data—an integrated multicloud data platform built on Red Hat OpenShift.
This paper demonstrates how Cloud Pak for Data helps Db2 users:
- Enable hybrid cloud and multicloud on a single, unified platform
- Integrate and manage data sources
- Support queries across multiple data sources without moving data
