Pros

IBM

  • DB2 maintains itself very well. The Task Scheduler component of DB2 allows for statistics gathering and reorganization of indexes and tables without user interaction or without specific knowledge of cron or Windows Task Scheduler / Scheduled jobs.
  • Its use of ASYNC, NEARSYNC, and SYNC HADR (High Availability Disaster Recovery ) models gives you a range of options for maintaining a very high uptime ratio. Failover from PRIMARY to SECONDARY becomes very easy with just a single command or windowed mouse click.
  • Task Scheduler ( DB2 9.7 and earlier ) allows for jobs to be run within other jobs, and exit and error codes can define what other jobs are run. This allows for ease of maintenance without third party softwares.
  • Tablespace usage and automatic storage help keep your data segmented while at rest, making partitioning easier.
  • Ability to run commands via CLI (Command Line Interface) or via Control Center / Data Studio ( DB2 10.x+) makes administration a breeze.

Teradata

  • Teradata database is based on Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) architecture. Because of this architecture, Teradata is able to share the workload evenly across all the system. It splits the work equally to its processes and each process runs in parallel to achieve the result in quickest possible time.
  • The underlying work is done by Teradata nodes, Access Module Processors (AMPs) and the disks associated with AMPs. The beauty is that none of them share any resources which means they all work independently and achieve actual parallel processing with the fastest results. The each AMP shares the same amount of work so that no resource stays idle and the output can be quicker.
  • Another excellent feature of Teradata is the Connectivity portion. It can so easily connect to almost all the major systems like Mainframes, Oracle DB or IBM DB2. The import of loads is super fast and efficient.
  • It is also really helpful when you have to troubleshoot an error because it provides great diagnostic information and therefore saves you a lot of time and effort by not having to go through all the logs manually and find the error and cause for it.

Cons

IBM

  • everything about Db2 is 'heavy', even the Community edition and some of the clients
  • difficult to configure for beginners /option overload
  • LUW and z platforms have minor inconsistencies that really should be a non-issue
  • support seems to be declining in terms of quality/quickness of responses

Teradata

  • Interface is outdated
  • Some syntax slightly different to standard SQL
  • Needs expertise to best create tables so as to not 'skew' database

    Since our services are running in IBM Kubernetes, using IBM Cloud Databases seem to be the best option. It may provide better performance than other vendors as everything is running in the same cloud. The overall experience so far is good as well.

    Usability

    IBM

    You have to be well versed in using the technology, not only from a GUI interface but from a command line interface to successfully use this software to its fullest.

    It has helped our project to save time, effort and give accurate results in the quickest possible time. The diagnostics feature is also outstanding giving us a detailed report of the error which occurred, when it occurred and the likely cause and resolution of the same as well. The support of SQL is inherited which makes it easy to work on it because you don't need to learn any new language for this.

    Reliability and Availability

    IBM

    To maximize availability, just provide backup data sharing files with each other. The DB2 self-protects itself from interruptions and there are many error messages to intercept to avoid the crash. OOTB, the guarantee of reliability is very high. Undoubtedly, the true enterprise solution that guarantees the business. No doubt at all.

    Performance

    IBM

    DB2 for i has very good performance and great tools to monitor and tune that performance as well. IBM Navigator for i, an integrated management interface, allows for real-time monitoring of user-defined parameters. Index Advisor, SQL Plan Cache and other ACS tools allow the DBE to further tune the performance and even change those settings depending on the time of day or workload running.

    Easily the best product support team. :) Whenever we have questions, they have answered those in a timely manner and we like how they go above and beyond to help.

    We have meetings at the beginning with the technical team to explain our requirements to them and they were really putting in a lot of effort to come up with a solution which will address all our needs. They implemented the software and also trained a few of our resources on the same too. We can get in touch with them now as well whenever we run into a roadblock but it's very less now.

    Alternatives Considered

    IBM

    Microsoft SQL Server and IBM Db2 both [have] their own advantages and performance optimization mechanism, but IDM Db2 is ahead on the race when we want better security and [easy] database management on the cloud. We [do not need to install Microsoft SQL Server in our remote server, we can directly use DB2 on Cloud and connect within [a] few minutes. It provides Auto-scaling without [downtime], [in] which users don't get any glitches or errors.

    Microsoft is definitely the easiest solution for beginners. We can start our journey as fast as with MS Windows. We should only take care with the installation process to avoid mistakes, that will be hard to correct later. Oracle is a huge solution with many additional tools and middle-ware platform. Both MS and Oracle have much bigger internet support resources and communities; that is a huge advantage.

    Scalability

    IBM

    This IBM service is perfect for companies that have other services that can be integrated as in other IBM software; in relation to its scalability, I cannot give a precise opinion; based on the fact that it is an IBM database service, I consider that its The level of scalability is acceptable, but I don't think it will have an amazing level of enhanced growth, the company took advantage of this service to store important data, and it is used as an integrated module of another IBM product.

    Return on Investment

    IBM

    • We have dealt with technical support on several occasions. Whenever we run into issues, the specialist team is involved and the resolution cycle is stretched. We have to rely on makeshift solutions and the issues keep recurring. Ultimately, the product itself has challenges and we are not currently satisfied with the support, either.
    • Scalability has been a problem area. We have traffic on the order of gigabytes and it impacts our queries and responses a lot. Considering the volume that we have, it manifests itself into a multitude of issues.

    • Negative impact is again the slowness that would be felt by developers and users.
    • Negative impact is that there is a learning curve if they have been using any other type of SQL.
    • Positive impact is that you can collaborate with other developers by using projects.
