Use IBM Db2? Share your opinion.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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 market
The 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.
Vertica's most outstanding features are the compression rates achieved and the speed of access of high volume data.
Allows us to take volumes and process them at a very high speed.
Eighty percent of the ETL operations have improved since implementing this solution.
It maximize cloud economics for mission-critical big data analytical initiatives.
It maximizes cloud economics with Eon Mode by scaling cluster size to meet variable workload demands.
Bulk loads, batch loads, and micro-batch loads have made it possible for our organization to process near real-time ingestions and faster analytics.
Any novice user can tune vertical queries with minimal training (or no training at all).
Vertica gives knowledgeable users and DBAs excellent tools for tuning.
The price should be lower.
The licensing fees can be reduced.
The ease of use, or ease of management, could be improved.
End-to-end encryption specifically is something the solution needs to have in the next release.
It would be helpful to have more querying tools and more development tools for us to work easily with Microsoft.
I would like to see better support for advanced analytics.
The initial set up was complex.
Support is an area where it could get better.
Promotion/marketing must be improved, even though it is a very useful product at very good price, it is not as "popular" as it should be.
Fact-to-fact joins on multi-billion record tables perform poorly.
It needs integration with multiple clouds.
It should provide a GUI interface for data management and tuning.
Monitoring tools need to be lightweight. They should not take up heavy resources of the main server.
If you do not utilize the tuning tools like projections, encoding, partitions, and statistics, then performance and scalability will suffer.
It would be great if this were a managed service in AWS.
Pricing and Cost Advice
I think that everyone knows that with IBM the standard price is higher than the others.
We don't see what the specific price of the DB2 license is because we pay for the backup license as a package.
Licensing fees are on a yearly basis.
It is fast to purchase through the AWS Marketplace.
The pricing and licensing depend on the size of your environment and the zone where you want to implement.
Read the fine print carefully.
