This is the first of a series of articles focused on setting up an Apple computer as a development environment for Db2 databases. The plan is to get the environment set up first, then some tools, and finally programming. The first step is installing Db2 using Docker.
Recently a customer asked us what steps were required to download and install/configure/setup Advanced Copy Services (ACS) so snapshot backups can be performed.So I thought I would share these links that hopeful can help.
Automated application testing for web services with a Db2 repository is not an easy task, and it invites for creative solution. On this post, David Morris shows how this can be accomplished with the aid of tools like Jenkins and H2 as a means of providing a test scenario that mirrors a Db2 database.
Thinking about your availability and recovery strategy shouldn't give you sleepless nights. Db2 understands the importance of keeping your database online 24x7 and with Db2 11.1 / 11.5 and its continuous delivery of new features and enhancements, you are on the right path of achieving such goals.
Moving to a new version or fix pack of DB2 should not be a scary event for databases using the high availability disaster recovery (HADR) feature. Fear of an outage or re initialization of your standby is no longer a concern.
