Even more reasons to choose IBM DB2 over Oracle® Database.
Are you struggling with high database maintenance costs, cluster performance and tuning challenges, and ever-increasing workloads for your staff? Consider IBM DB2®:
It is easy to move applications from Oracle Database to DB2; we have seen clients take an application based on Oracle 9i (and higher) and stand it up on DB2 in two weeks.
Breakthrough database compatibility makes the move easier than you may think.
DB2's cluster capability delivers database scalability and availability unmatched on UNIX or Linux systems, while maintaining application transparency.
Thanks to the deep partnership between IBM and SAP, DB2 is uniquely optimized for running SAP applications and uniquely integrated with SAP system management tools.
