Getting started with the Db2 pureScale Feature
- Db2 members
- The cluster caching facilities
- Db2 cluster services instance management software, which is based on IBM Tivoli® System Automation for Multiplatforms
- The cluster file system, which is based on Spectrum Scale
The installation process automatically creates the Db2 instance and configures all of the software components according to tested best practices. No additional user scripting or configuration is necessary. The first time that you start the instance, all benefits of the Db2 pureScale Feature are available.
The fix pack installation process for the Db2 pureScale Feature follows the same well-conceived paradigm of simplicity: Fix packs include all necessary updates for all of the components that are integrated into the feature, so multiple software installations and upgrades are not necessary. The upgrade process does not to affect database availability.
