Backup and recovery of systems is extremely important! From an IT perspective, manual backup and recovery processes are tedious, error prone, and time consuming, therefore, they are not frequently implemented. As the volume of data increases, though, it becomes more difficult to back up and recover without longer downtime that impacts production applications. To help resolve these challenges in database backup, recovery, and data unload, IBM DB2 Advanced Recovery Solution for DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows provides three distinct products: IBM DB2 Merge Backup, IBM DB2 Recovery Expert, and IBM InfoSphere Optim High Performance Unload.
Watch how database administrators at a fictitious company improves their backup and recovery strategies with an IBM DB2 advanced recovery solution. See how the team uses various Optim and DB2 tools to make their backup and recovery process faster, simpler, and more efficient. This recovery solution includes three distinct products: DB2 Merge Backup, DB2 Recovery Expert, and Optim High Performance Unload.
IBM® Optim™ Performance Manager is a performance analysis and tuning tool for managing DB2 systems using a web interface. It can be deployed in two configuration options: Standalone and Extended Insight. Part 1 of this demo series shows the standalone configuration option.
