Next Generation DB tooling with IBM Data Server Manager


Data explosion with the increased use of cloud and mobile services has resulted in organizations looking for efficient ways to manage data.  In the past we had several disparate product used to manage in-depth specific attributes of data which resulted in too many tools, repositories, installs and management overhead.

In IBM Data Server Manager we have introduced a light weight, easy deployment, performance and scalable tool that provides performance monitoring, configuration management, database administration, SQL and workload tuning all in one and can be up and running in a few minutes. It all web/cloud driven and has no fat clients to be installed.

I recently had the opportunity of implementing Data Server Manager at a client location and the product has been received very well. I am not a sales guy and this is no small customer either. They have used other tools like Optim Performance Manager, Query tuner and Data Studio before but data server manager incorporates all of them into one and distinguishes itself from the others in its intuitiveness and ease of use.

That’s enough gloating, do check it out yourself. Here is the information to get you started.
