IBM Announce DB2 10 for z/OS
October 21st, 2010

IBM have this week introduced DB2 10 for z/OS to the market.  This latest iteration of DB2 for mainframe systems builds on the considerable capabilities of DB2 9 and delivers:

  • Improved operational efficiency for "out of the box" DB2 CPU savings
  • Unsurpassed resiliency for business-critical information
  • Rapid application and data warehouse deployment for business growth

 

Julian Stuhler who heads up the Solutions Delivery team at Triton Consulting was involved in early beta testing of DB2 10 and comments: "With DB2 10 for z/OS, IBM has once again redefined the benchmark for large-scale database systems. I'm particularly impressed by the potential for significant productivity improvements through the new temporal data support, enhanced autonomic functions and SQL and XML extensions. These enhancements will help my customers to directly drive competitive advantage through more rapid deployment of application and warehousing workloads"

It is also important to note that there is a skip migration feature for those looking to move up from DB2 8 straight to DB2 10

Julian has written a white paper on the business benefits of DB2 10 for z/OS
