See What’s New:​



Elastic scaling of compute and storage

Quickly burst on compute during peak demand on your warehouse. Scale compute back down when demand falls, so you only pay for what you use. All managed through an intuitive UI or REST API.

Expertly managed and highly secure

Your cloud data warehouse instance is managed, monitored, encrypted and backed up by IBM, so you can focus on data analysis instead of administration.

Self-service backup and restore

Schedule backups timed around and based on your business requirements, and retain up to seven backups that can be used to quickly restore your cloud data warehouse, if the need arises.

Built on the Db2 Common SQL Engine

Write SQL for your application or dashboard, and deploy to any form factor, like the IBM Integrated Analytics System.

Best of Db2 and Netezza® in a single warehouse engine

Nearly 100 percent compatible with Netezza® and Oracle workloads, making a seamless move to cloud. For a select few cases, IBM offers migration services and free tooling.

In-database machine learning​

Train and run ML models directly in the Db2 Warehouse engine using SQL, Python or R. No data movement, no new skills required.
