IBM Db2 was much cheaper as a package than using other products. This is because IBM supplied a package with its product. It's an application. So it was much more efficient and a stronger competitor in that regard.

I think that everyone knows that with IBM the standard price is higher than the others.

The cost is embedded in the price of the backup solution. We know that the backup solution is quite expensive and with each inside license, there is also a database license. We don't see what the specific price of the DB2 license is because we pay for the backup license as a package.

The solution is pretty expensive and IBM isn't very transparent in their pricing plans. You need to be aware of what your company specifically needs before purchasing anything.

Licensing fees are on a yearly basis.
