Db2 on cloud

Overall Satisfaction with DB2

We used IBM Db2 on Cloud in one of our projects based on dynamic requirements. Early we were using Microsoft SQL Server for database management and [maintaining] transaction history. We needed one solution that helps us to resolve manual management of storage size and server configuration. We came to a solution and we have integrated IBM Db2 on Cloud to fulfill our requirements.
  • Auto Scaling
  • Optimized performance
  • Import excel or csv file format
  • Availability
  • Price difference in different regions[.]
  • Could provide better Documentation[.]
  • Can optimize performance matrix reports.[.]
  • Performance optimized[.]
  • High Availability, no need to go and check uptime.
  • Cost effective, now no need to purchase high configuration server all time.
  • No need to manage external server.
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.

IBM Db2 provides [the best] solutions for cloud database management with zero [downtime]. It provides auto-scaling based on requirements, for example for [a] specific period of time, [the] number of users could increase, and decrease, [At] that time we can set auto-scaling without affecting database availability. IBM Db2 on Cloud provides [a] console, where we can execute queries on the go. Though it is secure, still It is not suited for those who [have] security reasons like if they don't want to transfer data outside their organization, because your data will be in cloud.
