IBM DB2 Express on the Way

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From ChannelWEB]

In the coming months, the IBM Software Group plans to offer versions of its DB2 database and WebSphere application and portal servers for midsize businesses under the Express banner, said sources close to the company. DB2 Express is slated to be released early next year, the sources said.

DB2 Express will incorporate technologies that IBM obtained via its acquisition of Informix, such as Remote DBA and Remote Installation, which partners can use to support customers, company insiders said. Partners also can opt to resell IBM's version of those services.

Packaging and pricing haven't been finalized, but IBM is considering a bare-bones version of DB2 for as little as $1,000 for midmarket customers, they said. IBM also is slated to incorporate more "autonomic", or self-tuning, self-configuring and self-maintaining, features from its new DB2 Release 8.1 into the Express lineup to offload work from the database administrator.
