There are many types of database software. One of these is the IBM DB2. This software was built to use relational database structures. Due to recent developments, it has been adapted to work with object-relational, JSON and XML structures.
The DB2 database software was developed to be relevant even with next generation data demands. As such, it is capable of providing database administrators with the following features;
- Automatic execution
- Accelerated processing
- Application in data warehouses
- Guaranteed uptime
- Is compatible with SQL applications
- Optimization of processor performance
- Assures security of your data
- Optimization of computer storage
- Allows for data projection
Autonomic execution of tasks by Remote DBA Experts
For remote database administrators, there are so many activities to perform while maintaining a database. Examples of these tasks include allocating memory for the data, managing the storage facilities as well as maintaining business policies throughout the database.
By using IBM DB2, a DBA can program all these tasks to run automatically. This promotes the efficiency and productivity of the IT department.
Accelerate processing tasks
The IBM DB2 makes use of the ‘load and go’ mechanism. This method of working allows for high performance of the database. The DBA can easily conduct thought analytics in the database when using the DB2 software.
Application for analytics in data warehouses
A DBA has the resources necessary to perform pattern analysis and predictive processing when they use the IBM DB2. This database software allows the DBA to conduct these processes without having to move the data into a platform for data mining.
Database availability all day and night
Sometimes there are power blackouts of other complications with the computer system. As a result, your database becomes unavailable to users. The IBM DB2 database software provides mitigation for such situations by ensuring that the data is available to the users as soon as possible.
This database software allows a DBA to observe the Service Level Agreements (SLA). As such, the organization remains professional when relating with database stakeholders. The IBM DB2 keeps downtime to a minimum.
Can be used with SQL applications
There are many legacy database software that were built to work exclusively with SQL-based applications. These were constructed to work with the Oracle Database software.
Today, there are modern database technologies that are more advanced than these SQL-based ones. A good example is IBM DB2. This database software is backward compatible with the legacy software. The process of moving them is fast and has very low risk of data loss.
Optimization of processor performance
The IBM DB2 database software makes it possible for a DBA to receive data from the database faster. This is because the software is designed such that it works to save power consumption in the computer system. By running on efficient power levels, there are lower risks of data loss. Overall, the DBA is able to work faster to manage the database.
Get a view of how data looks at different time periods
In the IBM DB2 database software, a DBA can easily query the database such that they are able to see its state at a specific date in the past. Using the same feature, the DBA can also query the database such that they are able to see its state at a certain point in the future. All this is possible without necessarily constructing, maintaining and updating a temporal data infrastructure.
