to help improve operational efficiency and competitiveness, IT administrators adopt virtualization
technologies to optimize their IT infrastructure. IBM DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows database
software (“DB2 database software”) together with VMware virtualization technologies may help companies
reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase business responsiveness through server consolidation
and software licensing options that allow customers to pay for only what they use.
Learn more by reading this paper that details the potential cost-saving advantages of running DB2 software
on a VMware virtualized environment on x86 platforms.
