Overview
Bottom rule

IBM intends to make DB2 11 for z/OS ( DB2 11) available to a select group of clients in a closed Early Support Program (ESP) on March 8, 2013.

Shrinking budgets, exploding data growth, and dynamic business requirements continue to challenge companies everywhere. Add to that the need to deliver full availability with rock solid security and you understand why the demands on IT are greater than ever. Building on the formidable capabilities of DB2 10 for z/OS ( DB2 10) and the IBM System z® platform, DB2 11 helps you meet those challenges head on - efficiently and cost effectively.

DB2 11 for z/OS delivers innovations in these key areas:

Save money, save time, reduce cost

DB2 10 delivered strong CPU savings that drove great value for IBM clients. DB2 11 follows up with even more CPU savings and improved performance. Compared to DB2 10, DB2 11 clients may achieve up to 5% out-of-the-box CPU savings for various traditional online transaction processing (OLTP), heavy INSERT, and SAP workloads. Select query workloads may see even more benefits, with up to 20 to 30% CPU savings. Read intensive OLTP workloads may see up to 10% CPU savings with DB2 11. Decompressing data is much faster using DB2 11, with significant performance improvements, delivering up to 15% CPU savings when running the queries against compressed tables. Deep integration between DB2 and System z continues to bring value.

Additional RUNSTATS and LOAD workloads can now take advantage of zIIP engines1 , driving faster LOAD processing, improved performance, and CPU savings. With IBM zEnterprise® EC12 (zEC12) and DB2 11, you can achieve additional CPU reductions through the use of pageable large (1 MB) pages and Flash Express® , as well as the support of 2 GB pages.

1

IBM authorizes customers to use IBM specialty engines (for example, zIIPs, zAAPs, and IFLs) (SEs) only to execute the processing of Eligible Workloads of specific Programs expressly authorized by IBM as specified in the "Authorized Use Table for IBM Machines" (AUT) provided at

http://www.ibm.com/systems/support/machine_warranties/machine_code/aut.html

No other workload processing is authorized for execution on an SE. IBM offers SE at a lower price than General Processors/Central Processors because customers are authorized to use SEs only to process certain types and/or amounts of workloads as specified by IBM in the AUT.

Growing regulatory and business requirements to retain and manage archive data has brought many new challenges. Finding ways to cost effectively build and manage archive data while ensuring it remains operational can be daunting. DB2 temporal technology and integration with IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator for z/OS provides high speed access to historical data at a lower cost.

People continue to be your most valuable resources. Additional productivity enhancements delivered in DB2 11 can make DBAs and system programmers even more efficient, driving operational efficiencies and cost savings.

Unmatched resiliency, availability, scalability, and security for business-critical information

The real-world proven, system-wide resiliency, availability, scalability, and security capabilities of DB2 and System z continues to be the gold standard in the industry - keeping your business running when other solutions may not. DB2 11 continues to excel. It delivers even higher availability with improvements in online schema capabilities like DROP COLUMN support and by significantly reducing the need for planned outages with new online data repartitioning.

With new capabilities you can reduce the number of REORGs, automatically clean up after index pseudo deletes, and achieve even faster performance when a REORG is needed. You can avoid manual recovery actions with extended relative byte address (RBA) and log record sequence number (LRSN) addressing support. Resiliency is further enhanced with improved backup manageability for even faster recovery.

DB2 11 improves performance for BIND and DDL options on long-running persistent threads.

DB2 11 delivers improved cloning capabilities, requiring less manual effort to roll out the cloned environment.

DB2's data sharing capabilities continue to provide the highest standard in availability. DB2 11 adds to this capability with improvements for even more efficient data-sharing performance.

Enhanced analytics for business growth

As the amount and types of data grow, efficiently unlocking true business value through business analytics becomes more challenging. Providing effective ways to manage the amount of data and the speed of getting important data to all levels of an organization is a critical requirement for today's enterprises. To meet these growing demands:

Simpler, faster migration for faster ROI

The longer it takes to migrate to a new version, the longer it is before you can take advantage of all of the features. The new application compatibility feature helps streamline the migration process by allowing an application with incompatible SQL or XML that is no longer compatible with DB2 11 to continue to run with DB2 11 without requiring code changes. There is no longer a need to wait for application changes to be planned and delivered for your business to realize the benefits of DB2 11. Simpler catalog migration enables faster migration for a faster return on your investment to your business.

IBM Business Partners have been working with specifications for this release since November 2011 and with early code drivers since March 2012 to help validate product design and to support timely availability of ISV products that interoperate with the new capabilities offered by DB2 11.

Refer to the Description section of this announcement for further details on the exciting new capabilities DB2 11 delivers. A limited number of additional clients may be accepted for the DB2 11 for z/OS (5615-DB2) ESP.

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

Note that the information on hardware and software requirements in the following sections is preliminary and applies to the ESP version of DB2 11 for z/OS . Changes should be expected for the generally available product.

Processors

DB2 11 for z/OS operates on z10 or later processors running z/OS V1.13, or later. The processors must have enough real storage to satisfy the combined requirements of:

DB2 11 will probably require increased real storage as compared to DB2 10 for z/OS .

The configuration must include sufficient I/O devices to support the requirements for system output, system residence, and system data sets. Sufficient disk storage must be available to satisfy the user's information storage requirements and can consist of any direct-access facility supported by the system configuration and the programming system.

In addition to listing auxiliary storage and data communications devices, this section identifies function-dependent hardware requirements and virtual storage requirements.

Auxiliary storage

DB2 is independent of both disk and tape device type. You can use any magnetic, optical, or tape device that is supported by the data facilities component of DFSMS or the DB2 data sets. Tape products are not supported for databases but can be used for the DB2 archive log and utility functions.

The following DB2 data sets are supported by the following device types:

If these data sets are on a disk that is shared with other z/OS systems, you should use global resource serialization to prevent concurrent access by more than one z/OS system.

The minimum disk space requirement, based on installing DB2 using the panel default values, is approximately 1.3 GB. You need additional disk space for your data.

If you use dual logging and tape for the log archiving device, you need at least two tape drives.

Data communications devices

DB2 operations can be controlled from:

Function-dependent hardware requirements:

DRDA® data stream encryption

DRDA Data Stream Encryption uses the following ICSF APIs: CSNECKM, CSNERNG, CSNFPKB, CSNFPKE, CSNEENC, and CSNEDEC. Refer to z/OS ICSF Application Programmer's Guide for additional information on the usage of these APIs including hardware requirements.

DRDA AES user ID password encryption

DRDA AES user ID password encryption uses the following ICSF APIs: CSNEOWH, CSNERNG, CSNFPKB, CSNFPKE, CSNESYE, and CSNESYD. Refer to z/OS ICSF Application Programmer's Guide for additional information on the usage of these APIs including hardware requirements.

DSNLEUSR

DSNLEUSR uses the following ICSF APIs: CSNBCKM, CSNBENC, CSNEDEC. Refer to z/OS ICSF Application Programmer's Guide for additional information on the usage of these APIs including hardware requirements.

Encryption and decryption functions

Built-in functions for encryption and decryption require cryptographic hardware in a cryptographic coprocessor, cryptographic accelerator, or cryptographic instructions.

Coupling Facility levels

Refer to the latest Coupling Facility (CF) level recommended for your processor at:

http://www.ibm.com/systems/z/advantages/pso/cftable.html
Software requirements

This section lists licensed programs, or specific elements and features of licensed programs, that are required in the DB2 11 environment. You can use subsequent versions or releases of the programs, unless stated otherwise. This section also identifies requirements that are associated with specific DB2 capabilities, as well as optional programs that you can use with DB2 11. Refer to the following websites for the most current information

http://www.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/zos/support/zos_eos_dates.html
http://www.ibm.com/software/data/db2/zos/support.html

Operating system and support programs

DB2 11 requires the function that is provided by the following licensed programs or their equivalents. Subsequent versions or releases of these products are acceptable.

If DB2 11 is installed with IRLM V2R3 into the same SMP zone as any version of IMS with IRLM V2R2, IRLM V2R2 will be deleted during the SMP/E installation of IRLM V2R3.

Notes :

Virtual storage requirements

Most of DB2 data resides in shared memory of the DB2 address spaces, above the bar. DB2 11 for z/OS requires 1 TB contiguous of 64-bit shared private storage above the 2 GB bar for each DB2 subsystem. This storage is virtual, controlled by the z/OS HVSHARE parameter in IEASYSxx. This storage is not backed at allocation, only as it is used. Most control blocks and buffers reside in the extended private area above the 2 GB bar, while modules and some data resides above the 16 MB line, but below the 2 GB bar.

The amount of space needed for the common service area (CSA) below the 16 MB line is less than 40 KB for each DB2 for z/OS subsystem and 24 KB for each IRLM subsystem. High concurrent activity, parallelism, or high contention can require more E/CSA. The amount of 64-bit above the bar common storage needed for each DB2 subsystem is a minimum of 6G contiguous controlled by the z/OS HVCOMMON parameter in IEASYSxx.

Function-dependent program requirements

The following functions of DB2 require specific licensed programs, or features of licensed programs, before they can be used.

Application execution: Applications written in high-level programming languages, such as applications or stored procedures written in the C language and using the ODBC or CLI interfaces to DB2 , require Language Environment at run time. Applications or stored procedures written in Java , such as those using the JDBC or SQLJ interfaces to DB2 , require IBM SDK for z/OS , Java 2 Technology Edition V5 or later, at run time.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.

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.
