Have you ever worked with Backup and Recovery Tools for DB2 for z/OS and wondered what is the equivalent on DB2 for LUW?
With the announce of DB2 Recovery Expert V3.1 on June 7, we now have a complete set of backup and recovery tools for DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows. DB2 Advanced Recovery Solution is a term we use to talk about these 3 separate products: DB2 Merge Backup, DB2 Recovery Expert, High Performance Unload.
DB2 Recovery Expert helps customers with the more granular recovery needs in DB2 and also works as a log analysis tool to read active and archive db2 logs. Think about those times when you accidentally deleted a production table instead of a test table and you just wanted to get that back... Also think about a developer who ran his application last night and it deleted 1000 rows by accident... Use DB2 Recovery Expert to help you recover what you need and pinpoint mistakes to help generate UNDO SQL to put the database back the way it was before.
All this is pretty powerful stuff when you are a DBA and you need the 'advanced recovery' capability that is provided with these tools. If you want to find more about DB2 Recovery Expert refer to the main webpage:
