The popularity of DB2 running on Linux, Unix, and Windows (LUW) continues to grow. The rapid growth and popularity of DB2 running on Linux, Unix, and Windows has resulted in a shortage of experienced non-mainframe DB2 DBAs. IT departments today have to deal with tightening budgets and shrinking staffs. The luxury of being a single platform DBA is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Many DB2 mainframe DBAs find themselves supporting DB2 on these distributed platforms, resulting in a huge learning curve. It is essential for the DB2 DBA of the new millennium to be well versed on running DB2 on multiple platforms. This presentation focuses in on comparing the key architectural and administrative differences that a DBA will find essential in order to effectively manage these platforms.
