DB2 Enhanced for the Enterprise

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From eWeek]

IBM is looking to add to the high-availability, scalability and ease-of-management features of its DB2 Universal Database with an upgraded version of the software. IBM recently announced that DB2 Version 8.1 will be available Nov. 21 and will include such things as Self Managing And Resource Tuning, or SMART, capabilities, which simplify system management. New Web Health Monitoring tools will be added to alert database administrators to problems and enable them to fix some issues via a Web browser.

Also new with the upgrade will be expanded application integration capabilities, such as software "wrappers" that enhance performance when the database accesses non-IBM data sources. Key scalability enhancements in Version 8.1 include a multidimensional clustering tool and Connection Concentrator, which better manages memory for high-transaction applications.
