What is IBM Db2 Warehouse on Cloud?

IBM Db2® Warehouse on Cloud is an elastic, fully managed cloud data warehouse service that's powered by IBM BLU Acceleration® technology for increased performance and optimization of analytics at a massive scale.




Elastic scaling of compute and storage

Use the console or REST API to meet the needs of your business while adjusting compute and storage resources to meet performance requirements and optimize costs.

Expertly managed and highly secure

Your cloud data warehouse instance is managed, monitored, encrypted and backed up by IBM, so you can focus on data analysis instead of administration.

Self-service backup and restore

Schedule backups timed around and based on your business requirements, and retain up to seven backups that can be used to quickly restore your cloud data warehouse, if the need arises.

Built on the Db2 Common SQL Engine

Write SQL for your application,dr dashboard, and easily deploy to any form factor (example: IBM Integrated Analytics System).

Compatible with Netezza and Oracle

Nearly all of your Netezza® and Oracle workloads will move seamlessly to the cloud and, for select few cases, IBM offers migration services and free tooling.

Blazing-fast analytics with IBM BLU Acceleration
