IBM announced a new version of its database software, IBM DB2 V11.1, to help developers bridge on-premise applications to the cloud and enable a hybrid data architecture.
DB2 V11.1 is a multi-workload database software that powers applications including mobile and advanced analytics. IBM DB2 offers an environment required for the hybrid world, designed to protect data both in flight and at rest. It also enables its in-memory technology to be deployed across a parallel processing architecture and helping to improve response times.
IBM DB2 makes data simple so developers can focus on: building new apps that manage “born in the cloud” data; moving data workloads from data centers to the cloud; delivering short-term database projects; creating off-premises disaster recovery fail-safes; and pushing data to data centers across the globe to facilitate geographic reach and regulatory compliance.
Additionally, IBM DB2 is SQL-compatible with Oracle Database, ideal for moving of applications from Oracle to DB2, whether on premises or in the cloud, with minimal-to-no application changes.
“In today’s world, clients need to leverage a truly hybrid data infrastructure that reduces the boundaries of where they can build and deploy efficient, resilient and highly scalable applications,” said Rob Thomas, vice president of development, IBM Analytics. “DB2 is the best choice for mission critical, multi-workload applications, regardless of where you deploy them, on premise or in the cloud. This agility helps our clients accelerate innovation for competitive advantage.”
