Big Blue Aiming 'Stinger' at Oracle, Microsoft

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From internetnews.com]

Following months of previews and testing, IBM (Quote, Chart) released in open beta the most complete version of its next-generation Stinger database software Monday.

Looking to slingshot past the competition with new features and better performance, Big Blue officials said the latest DB2 Universal Database goes beyond what rivals Microsoft and Oracle offer with their respective SQL Server and 10g products. The software is also the latest iteration of its kind for underscoring IBM's on-demand computing initiative to provide access to information anytime from anywhere.
