DB2 database on the Cloud

Manage your data on the cloud with DB2

IBM Database Patterns are integrated and configured IBM software that minimizes the time, effort, cost and risk to deploy a fully functional database or data mart in a secure cloud environment. Each workload optimization provides best practices designed to greatly accelerate deployments that do not require significant customization.

Each Pattern is designed to help create a database environment in minutes, eliminating a sometimes lengthy delay in designing, configuring, testing, tuning and deploying each individual solution.

The IBM DB2 with BLU Acceleration Pattern includes IBM DB2 with BLU Acceleration at its core.

For data marts, IBM DB2 with BLU Acceleration Pattern provides the following workload optimizations:

For transactional databases, IBM DB2 with BLU Acceleration Pattern provides the following workload optimizations:


In a private cloud environment, IBM DB2 with BLU Acceleration Pattern is available with:



In addition, the following two patterns support DB2 applications based on previous database releases:


IBM Transactional Database Pattern

The IBM Transactional Database Pattern provides a transactional database framework for departmental OLTP (online transaction processing) applications that do not require very high levels of database customization. The built-in expertise of IBM Transactional Database Pattern makes it possible to create and deploy workload-optimized databases for both test as well as production environments in minutes, thus providing your business with greater agility, flexibility and simplicity while lowering costs and risks.

IBM Transactional Database Pattern is ideal for IT organizations trying to minimize:


IBM Data Mart Pattern

The IBM Data Mart Pattern provides a data mart infrastructure for data-centric applications. Tuned for the unique I/O throughput required of data mart workloads, the IBM Data Mart Pattern includes data compression capabilities and data movement tools--all designed to help move the business forward with the needed information without delay.

Rather than using unmanaged spreadsheet solutions without data backup and security plans, the IBM Data Mart Pattern enables IT to address operational demands stemming from ad-hoc business analysis by quickly provisioning a data mart environment geared for intensive query requirements with appropriate support.
