DB2 pureScale enablement

Workload balancing, automatic client reroute, and client affinities

The DB2 pureScale Feature for Enterprise Server Edition provides a database solution that meets the needs of the most demanding customers. It is designed to scale effectively to meet the growing and dynamic needs of different organizations. You can start additional members in the DB2 pureScale environment without any impact to existing applications to meet the demands of peak processing times. The DB2 pureScale Feature automatically balances the workload across all DB2 members in the cluster without any changes at the application side, taking full advantage of the additional processing capacity.
