More ways to scale with Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

Data warehouses form the centerpiece of many complex data architectures, and they need to support analytic workloads of varying degrees. These workloads often differ in use case, intensity, and requirements for query responsiveness. Today, we’re proud to announce a new addition to the Db2 Warehouse on Cloud family. It’ll help you further optimize performance, resource consumption, and operational costs across your data architecture.

Elasticity where you need it

Meet Flex, the newest member of our elastic data warehouse family. It delivers independent scaling of storage and compute, self-service backup and restore, and fast-recovery HA in a configuration optimized for storage-dense workloads. Flex is designed to complement the compute-heavy Flex Performance plan announced earlier this year and provide additional flexibility to your data architecture.

Mix and match compute-dense warehouses with storage-dense warehouses to achieve elasticity and maximize resource optimization across your data warehousing layer. For example:

  • In a public cloud architecture, use Flex Performance to tackle production workloads and offload development/test workloads to Flex. Alternatively, deploy Flex standalone to handle less performance-sensitive jobs, such as less frequently accessed dashboards.
  • In a hybrid cloud architecture, use IBM Integrated Analytics System’s new Lift to Cloud feature to easily move a subset of your on-premises data to a Flex instance with a few clicks. Test your applications in a cloud environment with dedicated resources before deploying to production.

We hope this new addition to our family will help you better optimize resources across a larger portion of your data architecture. Get up and running here!

OM, Db2 Warehouse on Cloud
