"Database on the cloud"

What do you like best?

The IBM DB2 database is of the cool new technologies through which one can easily create a database on the cloud without having to worry about any operating system and does not have any limitation. It is easily scalable and also does not require any major set up.

What do you dislike?

Well I have used both the Amazon RedShift and the IBM DB2 instance and just feel that implementation wise it is a little tougher to implement when compared to AWS. However it also is a robust platform supporting major day to day operations.

The fact that IBM does not push the benefits of Db2 vs. Oracle and HANA, as the database of choice for SAP. Needs to be adopt and adapt modern interfaces in a agile manner. Integration with IDAA needs to be made more transparent.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Better publicize the benefits of running SAP on Db2. Push IBM for more modern interfaces. Technlogy is very solid and reliable

"Db2 Warehouse on Cloud Review"

What do you like best?

You can size dashDB to your current needs and expand its capability later on as the needed. I like the way dashDB allow for connecting to the cloud that my network engineer to set things up quickly. IBM dashDB's ability to store and provide fast access to data both on-premise and in the cloud makes it a real winner for me.

What do you dislike?

IBM dashDB could be clearer about the technology used to deliver the particular tier of the service you buy. IBM dashDB can be cost prohibitive for folks needing to push a lot of data from on-premise into the cloud on a regular basis.IBM dashDB is really like three data technologies in one and the sales teams at IBM sometimes can't explain why the MPP tier is better for certain uses over the db2 BLU based tier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The IBM DB2 database is of the cool new technologies through which one can easily create a database on the cloud without having to worry about any operating system and does not have any limitation. It is easily scalable and also does not require any major set up.
