Fundamentals of IBM DB2 Federated Server and Relational Connect
With a federated database, you can access objects in other data stores as if those objects were local to the federated database. Federated databases also permit objects at multiple data stores to be accessed together in the same query. The DB2 federated server is the capability of DB2 Universal Database™ Version 7 for Linux, UNIX®and Windows® to allow objects such as tables and views in other data sources to be queried as if those objects were in an actual DB2 database.
Data federation is a key part of your ability to integrate information across different backend data stores. This 48-page guide provides valuable and detailed information about how the DB2 federated server works, how to configure it, and how to tune it.
