If you are a developer or DBA and are interested in DB2, take this opportunity to preview emerging technologies that are still in the lab.
IBM wants to collaborate with you early in technology conception, prototyping, and iterative development cycles. These technologies may or may not be aligned with announced products. The features or technologies in the download do not represent a commitment or obligation on the part of IBM.

How it works:
Find more details and the download on developerWorks DB2 Technology Preview.
Review the installation guide before proceeding to install the DB2 Technology Preview. You can find it in the download file.
NOTE: The recommendation for using the preview technology is with an 8 core, 64 GB machine, which necessitates the use of a VMware workstation.
Once you've tried the technology, go to the DB2 Technology Preview forum and let everyone know what you think.
I hope you enjoy being the first to try this new technology! We’re looking forward to seeing your feedback!
