IBM Db2 Hosted is a cloud service that provides on-demand access to a Db2-based multi-workload database. It is a high-capacity and high-performance solution.

Key Features of IBM Db2 Hosted

Security-rich and high-performance IBM Cloud

IBM Db2 offers all of Db2’s security features, including data encryption. Additionally, your DBAs are fully responsible for database access and operation. With IBM Db2 Hosted, you get dedicated IBM Cloud servers for a single tenant. This feature ensures that performance will be better isolated and that noise from neighbours will be less of an issue.

Smooth integration

You can access IBM Db2 Hosted just as you would on-premises versions of the software. The database interacts with the same applications; security; extract, transform, load (ETL); messaging; and monitoring and systems management tools that you use today.

Flexible scaling

Besides the standard configurations, clients can scale compute resources (Virtual Processor Cores and Memory) up and down as needed, and storage resources can be scaled independently so the customer only pays for the resources they consume.

Easier migration

With IBM Db2 Hosted SQL, you can access the Oracle Database as well as Db2 software running on-premises. It makes it easier to migrate application code to and from IBM Db2 Hosted.

High availability

However, IBM Db2 Hosted gives you full DBA control over the system, even though it is a hosted service. IBM experts can help you by:

  • Installing IBM Db2 Hosted on your server so that it is configured and ready to use.
  • Maintaining up-to-date hardware and operating systems.
  • Setting up high availability and performing database backups.

Modernized data platform

Take advantage of the flexibility and economy of cloud infrastructure without sacrificing administrative control.

High-performance features

Delivers advanced in-memory performance, columnar architecture, query optimization, high availability, data compression, and other innovations designed to address any cloud workload.

Hosted cloud database

Suitable for organizations looking for a cloud database that offers full administrative control and Db2 expertise.
