Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

IBM dashDB's ability to store and provide fast access to data both on-premise and in the cloud makes it best-of-breed when it comes to implementation flexibility. All the while you can have one data solution that pulls data together from Hyperion Planning (Oracle) and Microsoft Dynamics (MM) into the same system as part of an EDW project.

Db2 on Cloud

A great product - would not shy away at all. It has some great features that makes it easy to read and write. Their on-memory technology for on-prem is good and overall it's user friendly with its approach. I even like the IBM product support team on helping out on our issues. There is massive community support over online bugs and seems like one of my best go to tools for Data Science.

Cons

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

  • IBM dashDB could be clearer about the technology used to deliver the particular tier of the service you buy.
  • IBM dashDB can be cost prohibitive for folks needing to push a lot of data from on-premise into the cloud on a regular basis.
  • IBM dashDB is really like three data technologies in one and the sales teams at IBM sometimes can't explain why the MPP tier is better for certain uses over the db2 BLU based tier.

Db2 on Cloud

  • UI : the UI can be improved to a great extent. Ideally we would want to see the UI/UX to match with latest trends.
  • Limitation to a 15TB database size for any edition below than ES for on-prem. I am sure Cloud solves it, but falls in the same range as others (sometimes higher), making it maybe not the first one to go to.

Alternatives Considered

Db2 Warehouse on Cloud

IBM dashDB stacks up well against both on-premise (SQL Server and DB2), but it was a tough choice to go with over AzureDB. Ultimately, the deep discount by IBM led us to go with dashDB with the understanding that we could back out of the technology at a later date.

IBM Db2 is cheap, easy to use, and less human intervention is required.
