Objective 4: Cloud storage integration in DB2 11.1
Objective 5: Areas still to be covered (suggestions to IBM, and how to pursue them)

Abstract:  Cloud providers offer a range of storage solutions, at different price points and with different capabilities. Starting in DB2 10.5 Fixpack 5, and much more in DB2 11.1, DB2 supported exploiting these storage mechanisms directly. This presentation covers experiences using cloud storage with DB2, both before the direct exploitation and afterwards
