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.
A few months ago, we reimagined data warehousing in the IBM Cloud with Flex Performance, the flagship tier of our new Flex line of offerings. Flex brings new levels of elasticity, speed, and resiliency to data warehousing on the IBM Cloud, and forms the foundation for our strategy moving forward. We're working continuously to not only strengthen and enhance its capabilities, but to also make them more accessible to you so you can better leverage them and get the most out of your data warehouse. Today, we're proud to announce a significant update to our Flex family.
We've decided to deprecate built-in support of RStudio in all existing and future Db2 Warehouse on Cloud deployments starting April 24th, 2018, in favor of having Watson Studio as a single, collaborative hub for your data science workflow.
Today, we're proud to announce the launch and immediate availability of the brand new Db2 Warehouse on Cloud Web console and REST APIs! We want to make your interaction with our world-class cloud data warehouse offering as seamless as possible, so we set out to completely redesign these two integral parts of our user experience.
We're rebranding dashDB for Analytics to Db2 Warehouse on Cloud.
