IBM DB2 - Using the most flexible enterprise-class database on Amazon EC2
Time: 12:00 EDT, 17:00 London
Length: 1 hour
Speakers: Mark Wilding, Leon Katsnelson
IBM DB2 database software running on Amazon EC2 lets you get the most out of today's tough economic climate that is charaterized by reduced budgets and freezes on capital expenditure. IBM and AWS provide a lot of flexibility for cloud computing, including free DB2 AMIs, low cost by-the-hour production-ready DB2 AMIs, and the ability to bring your existing DB2 licenses to the cloud. With robust capabilities for the most demanding workloads, and tons of autonomic features, DB2 is ideally suited for cloud environments.
Join us to learn how to quickly develop and deploy new and existing applications using DB2 and Amazon EC2. This session will walk you through the DB2 AMIs and highlight some of the unique capabilities in DB2, including the new features in DB2 9.7 that make it much easier to move applications from Oracle to DB2.
