Refer to the Description section for a complete list of these new and repositioned products, as well as a list of new terms and conditions for select products.
IBM's initial focus on database tools centers on four areas:
Data Base Administration Tools address the most common tasks required to service and support database operations. These include such tasks as unloading, reloading, reorganizing, copying, and catalog management. Many of these are operations where performance is critical in meeting your company's availability commitments. New and repositioned tools being announced today in this area include:
While Administration Tools cover most of your maintenance and service operations, performance management is equally important in keeping your database environment operating at peak performance. New and repositioned tools being announced today in this area include:
Recovery and Replication Management
Normal backup and recovery operations are handled by the image copy and recovery tools you choose. Many customers, however, have additional requirements or situations requiring special solutions. These might include: archiving data, point in time recovery, online recovery, and added image copy capabilities. In addition, asynchronous replication of data to where it is needed can enable your distributed applications. New and repositioned tools being announced today in this area include:
Lastly, tools helpful in the development, testing, operation, and connectivity of database applications are equally important. The ability to build simple reporting applications, provide e-business connections, examine and change data, and control checkpoint activities are useful to effectively create and operate your application subsystem. New and repositioned tools being announced today in this area include:
