IBM's DB2 8.1 Raises Bar for Manageability

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From eWeek]

The latest release of DB2, IBM's flagship database, strengthens its ability to stay able-bodied and available under demanding workloads and through administrative changes that previously disrupted service.

DB2 8.1 -- there is no version 8.0 -- started shipping late last month and provides a number of fit-and-finish and performance updates to the product's core engine, as well as new management and development tools.

Although there aren't any changes in this version that could shake up the database market, DB2 continues to offer a healthy combination of great cross-platform support, a midrange price and an excellent feature set that only Oracle Corp.'s Oracle9i can match. (We give Oracle the edge right now, but the two trade places regularly.)
