Description
Bottom rule

IBM DB2 Connect 9.7 provides fast and robust connectivity to IBM DB2 databases deployed on either System z and System i. DB2 Connect has a number of DB2 Connect server products to best meet your company's needs. A DB2 Connect server is a connectivity server that concentrates and manages connections from multiple desktop clients and Web applications to DB2 servers running on IBM System z or IBM System i servers. DB2 for System i, DB2 for System z, and DB2 for VSE and VM databases continue to be the systems of choice for managing the most critical data for the world's largest organizations. While System z and System i databases manage the data, there is a great demand to integrate this data with applications running on Linux, UNIX, and Windows workstations.

DB2 Connect servers enable local and remote client applications to create, update, control, and manage DB2 databases and host systems using:

  • Structured Query Language (SQL)
  • DB2 APIs
  • Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)
  • Java Database Connectivity (JDBC)
  • SQLJ (embedded SQL for Java)
  • DB2 call level interface (CLI)
  • Ruby on Rails
  • pureQuery
  • PHP
  • Perl

Application development enhancements

Significant application development enhancements are added to DB2 9.7. These enhancements will help both existing DB2 applications to be built and modified quicker, and also allow developers with multiple SQL language skills to work easily with DB2.

A key focus of DB2 9.7 has been to make it easier to support a robust stored procedure and trigger language in a shorter amount of time. The enhancements include expanded support for implicit casting, the creation of modules, new functions, and a range of new data types. Module and package creation allows developers to bundle and deploy groups of procedures, functions, and variables. DB2 9.7 introduces new data type support for NUMBER, VARCHAR2, and DATE with time component.

Alternative SQL language syntax is supported including alternative SQL language syntax for DELETE statements, the RID_BIT scalar function, and the FOR UPDATE clause for SELECT INTO statements. Alternative SQL syntax such as varying outer join methods is now supported. A new scripting and command line development tool, CLPPlus, provides support for dynamically creating, editing, and running SQL statements and scripts.

Accessing IBM database management systems (DB2 and Informix) is easier than ever. The common IBM data server clients and drivers are enhanced as are the IBM Database Add-Ins for Visual Studio 2008 and pureQuery support. In addition to federating data from DB2 and IDS databases, DB2 Connect 9.7 now supports Web services through federation.

Security enhancements

With the number of both internal and external security threats growing, it is important that data security can be separated from a DBA's management of critical systems. Advances in separation of duties lets DBAs maintain full control over database operation, without any access to the data. You can also easily isolate all security and auditing control into the hands of a separate security administrator. Security has further been simplified with new groups making application development privileges as well as workload management simpler. Additionally, security functionality has been extended with AES encryption, Transport Layer Security (TLS), and additional Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) client support.

Data Studio

DB2 Connect 9.7 works with the IBM Optim development and administration tools. IBM Optim solutions help organizations support business growth without growing costs by managing today's heterogeneous data environments from requirements to retirement.

Trends toward small team development, where each team member assumes multiple roles, call for more flexibility in development environments. Optim solutions are addressing those requirements providing more and more plug-in capabilities to our common Eclipse base. DB2 Connect 9.7 includes entitlement for Data Studio and also fully supports Optim Developer, a separately purchased product.

DB2 Connect Personal Edition

DB2 Connect Personal Edition provides the API drivers and connectivity infrastructure to enable direct connectivity from Windows and Linux desktop applications to System z and System i database servers. This product is specifically designed and licensed for enabling two-tier client/server applications running on individual workstations and, as such, is not appropriate for use on servers.

Unlike server-based products (DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition, Application Server Edition, and Unlimited Edition), DB2 Connect Personal Edition does not provide the advanced functions such as Mobility on Demand, federated database support, server-based monitoring or connection concentrator, and associated load-balancing and failover support.

DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition

DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition is a combination of DB2 Connect server and DB2 software designed to address the needs of organizations that require robust connectivity from a variety of desktop systems to System z and System i database servers. Data Server Client software is deployed on desktop systems and provides API drivers that connect client/server applications running on these desktop systems to a DB2 Connect server. Designed to provide connectivity for client/server applications in large-scale, demanding environments, DB2 Connect server provides connection pooling and connection concentrator functions to maximize application availability while minimizing System z and System i resources.

License charges for DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition are based on the number of users of the product. Two types of licensing users are provided, concurrent users and authorized users, and they are each sold in packs of 25 users. The concurrent user licensing model addresses the needs of two-tier client/server applications. The authorized user licensing model can be applied to any environment provided the identity of each user is well known. However, since charges for DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition are based on the number of users and because determining the number of actual users in mobile and Web-based applications is very difficult or even impossible, DB2 Connect Application Server Edition and DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition are preferred licensing options for such environments.

DB2 Connect Application Server Edition

DB2 Connect Application Server Edition is identical to the DB2 Connect Enterprise Server in its technology. Just like the DB2 Connect Enterprise Edition, it is designed for large-scale, demanding environments. However, its licensing terms and conditions are meant to address specific needs of multitier client/server applications as well as applications that utilize Web technologies. DB2 Connect Application Server Edition license charges are based on the size or the number of Processor Value Units available to the application servers where the application is running. License charges are not affected by the number of users of the application, the size of the DB2 Connect server itself, or the size of the System z or System i database server.

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System z

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition is ideal for organizations with extensive usage of DB2 Connect, especially where multiple applications are involved. This product provides program code of the DB2 Connect Personal Edition as well as program code identical to the DB2 Connect Application Server Edition for unlimited deployment throughout an organization.

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition license fees are based on the size of the DB2 System z server (measured in MSUs) and are not affected by either the number of processors available to the DB2 Connect servers or the number of processors available to application servers where the application is running. This makes DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition an ideal choice for organizations where multiple applications are utilizing DB2 Connect, or organizations with a mix of two-tier, multitier client/server, Web-based, and mobile applications.

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System i

DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition is ideal for organizations with extensive usage of DB2 Connect, especially where multiple applications are involved. This product provides program code of the DB2 Connect Personal Edition as well as program code identical to the DB2 Connect Application Server Edition for unlimited deployment throughout an organization. DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System i license fees are based on the number of processors allocated to the data source running on i5/OS® or OS/400® operating systems. Charges for the program are not based on the processors attached or available to the DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System i itself. Unlimited users are permitted. This makes DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System i an ideal choice for organizations where multiple applications are utilizing DB2 Connect or organizations with a mix of two-tier, multitier client/server, Web-based, and mobile applications.

  • 64-bit DB2 products and components running on x86-64 systems with 64-bit Windows or Linux: Systems with Intel EM64T or AMD64 processors.
  • DB2 products running on AIX® and Linux for System p® and System i: Systems with POWER4™ processors are required.
  • For DB2 products running on Solaris, UltraSPARC CPUs.
  • For DB2 products on all other systems, the CPU requirements are determined by the operating system being used.

The hardware requirements of DB2 products may be occasionally updated. To obtain the current information for supported hardware, refer to

http://www.ibm.com/software/data/db2/udb/sysreqs.html

Memory requirements

Data server clients: The amount of memory required for the Data Server Runtime Client depends on the operating system and the database applications that are running. In most cases, it should be sufficient to use the minimum memory requirements of the operating system as the minimum requirement for running the Data Server Runtime Client. Graphical tools, that are part of an Administration and Application Development client, will require an additional 192 MB. The following table shows applicable recommended minimum memory for installation prerequisites in MB. The actual requirement depends on the applications you intend to run. Additional memory may be required to handle heavy workloads and large numbers of users. The following numbers are for reference only.

DB2 products and components       Memory
 
DB2 Connect Personal Edition      64 MB
DB2 Connect Server editions       256 MB

Disk space requirements: The following table shows applicable recommended minimum disk space for a typical install in MB. The actual space required may vary depending on your file system and the components installed. The numbers below are for reference only.

Charge metrics definitions

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

PVU is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor families (vendors and brands). A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on the level or tier of all processor cores activated and available for use by the Program on the server. Some programs allow licensing to less than the full capacity of the server's activated processor cores, sometimes referred to as sub-capacity licensing. For programs which offer sub-capacity licensing, if a server is partitioned utilizing eligible partitioning technologies, then a PoE must be obtained for the appropriate number of PVUs based on all activated processor cores available for use in each partition where the program runs or is managed by the program. Refer to the International Passport Advantage Agreement Attachment for Sub-Capacity Terms or the program's License Information to determine applicable sub-capacity terms. The PVU entitlements are specific to the program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another program.

For general overview of PVUs for processor families (vendors and brands), go to

http://www-306.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/ pvu_licensing_for_customers.html

To calculate the exact PVU entitlements required for the program, go to

https://www-112.ibm.com/software/howtobuy/passportadvantage/ valueunitcalculator/vucalc.wss

Concurrent User

Concurrent User is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A Concurrent User is a shared user access to the program within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed only on one computer or one server. The total number of Concurrent Users simultaneously accessing the program at any moment in time may not exceed the highest number of Concurrent Users authorized by the PoE. You must have an entitlement for each Concurrent User simultaneously accessing the program or any program component in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Authorized User

Authorized User is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. An Authorized User is an individual (named or unnamed) within or outside of your enterprise. The program may be installed on one or more computers or servers and accessed by the number of users authorized by the PoE. You must have an entitlement for each Authorized User accessing the program or any program component in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means.

Client device

Client device is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A client device is a computing device that requests the execution of a set of commands, procedures, or applications from another computer system that is typically referred to as a server. Multiple client devices may share access to a common server. A client device generally has some processing capability or is programmable to allow a user to do work. A PoE must be obtained for each client device accessing the program in any manner on each and every single computer or server where the program is installed.

Examples include, but are not limited to appliances, automated teller machines, cash registers, desktop computers, kiosks, notebook computers, personal digital assistant, point-of-sale terminals, and technical workstations.

Host server

A host server license must be obtained for each independent production DB2 for z/OS data server being accessed with DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System z. Each production DB2 for z/OS subsystem is considered to be a data server and as such, a host server license must be obtained for each production DB2 subsystem that will be accessed with DB2 Connect Unlimited Edition for System z. Where the production DB2 subsystem is part of a DB2 Data Sharing Group, only one host server entitlement is required for all DB2 subsystems that are a part of the DB2 Data Sharing Group. When multiple independent production DB2 subsystems or multiple production DB2 Data Sharing Groups are used, one host server license must be obtained for each independent production DB2 subsystem or DB2 Data Sharing Group. Non production DB2 subsystems or DB2 Data Sharing Groups are included in the associated production DB2 subsystems or DB2 Data Sharing Groups host server license.

Million Service Units (MSU)

In addition to the host server license, usage charges are based on the MSUs per hour entitlements of the DB2 for z/OS or DB2 Server for VSE and VM. DB2 Connect usage-based charges for MSUs apply to any single DB2 for z/OS subsystem or DB2 Server for VSE and VM database server that users will be connecting to. Charges for this program are based on the total MSU capacity of the attached DB2 for z/OS, or DB2 Server for VSE and VM host system, and is not limited to the number of MSUs that are actually used by the DB2 for z/OS, or DB2 Server for VSE and VM products on that host. Where the DB2 subsystem is part of a DB2 Data Sharing Group, MSUs are based on the MSU entitlements of the entire DB2 Data Sharing Group.

DB2 Connect MSUs are based on capacity of sum of all licensed sub-systems or data sharing groups.

Warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known Program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Handbook for further information at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer

The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
