Abstract:  Most clients are on a journey to cloud. But cloud isn’t a place…it’s a way of delivering agility, scalability, speed and simplicity; regardless of the location (public, private or hybrid). In this session Chris will discuss how to create your own Private cloud by combining Db2 and IBM’s Hyperconverged Systems. The simplicity and performance of Hyperconverged Systems combined with the analytic and transactional power of DB2 is second to none. See how to build and deploy unlimited number of VMs running Db2 to satisfy your dev, test, QA and production needs by deploying some really simple infrastructure (including one click upgrades). Chris will take you under the hood of running DB2 in your own private cloud.
