IBM Db2 Warehouse on Cloud features

Elastic scaling of storage and compute

Meet the challenges of your ever-changing resource requirements with independent scaling of storage & compute resources. With the easy-to-use interface and REST API, you can easily scale up the compute nodes on your data warehouse during peak demand, then scale back down again to optimize costs when demand falls. In addition, storage can be scaled up to meet your needs as data grows.

Self-service backup and restore

Schedule backups based on your business requirements, and retain up to 7 backups that can be used to quickly restore your cluster if the need arises.

Built on the Db2 Common SQL Engine

Write SQL for your application, or dashboard, and easily deploy to any form factor. For example, reports written to work with the IBM Integrated Analytics System can seamlessly work against data stored in Db2 Warehouse on Cloud or Db2 Warehouse.

Blazing fast analytics with IBM BLU Acceleration

With IBM BLU Acceleration, you will be able to take advantage of a collection of key technologies developed by IBM Research. These include in-memory processing for faster access to data, actionable compression which allows querying of data without decompression, and data skipping that only pulls from disk the data required to satisfy the query. All of this is to say - faster access to insights from even your largest data sets.

Fully managed, safe, and secure

Focus on your customers and leave administrative tasks, such as monitoring, encryption, backups, and system patches, to the IBM team of Db2 and DevOps experts. In addition, Db2 Warehouse on Cloud clients automatically receive new features & capabilities when they are made available.

Embedded IBM Netezza-like in-database analytics

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud comes packed with a suite of Netezza-like in-database analytics tools so you can run your analytics jobs wherever your data resides. Algorithms include linear regression, decision tree clustering, k-means clustering, and ESRI-compatible geospatial extensions.

Private networking option

For clients who would like to restrict access to their data, Db2 Warehouse on Cloud can be deployed on an isolated network that is accessible through a secure Virtual Private Network (VPN).
