Pros
When you submit a ticket the response time is quick.We had a crash of the backup system and the IBM DB2 was always up and consistent. It's robust, and for us, it was always up and running.The self-management and optimization features are probably the best on the marketThe solution is very stable, in both hardware and database.The most valuable features of this solution are security and stability.The scalability and availability of this solution are the most valuable features.The most valuable feature of this solution is the integration with other IBM products.Some of the most valuable features are the scaling from a small very cheap installation to a very large enterprise installation. In addition, the backups and assistance are good.
