In recent years, IBM DB2 has been under considerable pressure from its competitors, most notably Oracle RAC. These competitors claim to provide the same functionality and quality of service characteristics as DB2. DB2 specialists are often asked by the business decision makers to articulate the technical advantages of DB2 and justify the choice of DB2 as the database server:
Why is DB2 for z/OS considered the ultimate database server?

What are the technical differentiators by which it stands out, particularly against Oracle RAC?

How does Oracle RAC process concurrent transactions as opposed to DB2?

In this webcast, we will offer answers to these questions. In addition, a complimentary whitepaper will be available for download. In the whitepaper IBM will size up the database clustering architecture provided by DB2 for z/OS with the Oracle RAC product. When all is said and done, compared and contrasted, DB2 for z/OS differentiates itself with superior characteristics.
