IBM is a pretty reliable technology company, contantly releasing new versions of its core software like DB2. In the new section, Obtaining DB2: A World of Choice, I walk you through all the supported ways to obtain your desired edition of DB2.
This resource also helps you keep up with IBM’s regular website changes – they move DB2 links more often than you’d like!
As the move from the old site continues, the list of current DB2 versions and editions has now arrived! This should help you decipher whether you want Express-C, Enterprise, or something else. Check out the details in Choosing the Right DB2 for your guide to choosing the right version for your needs.
The site move from the old Amazon-hosted location is underway. Over the coming weeks, I’ll migrate each Beginning DB2 topic and update it to reflect the latest and greatest DB2 v11 and v12 approaches.
For now, the eBook and print version of Beginning DB2 will be based on the existing pre-move content until all the updates are complete.
