IBM's definitive guide to DB2 high availability

High availability is now crucial to virtually every enterprise and e-business application. Now, there's a start-to-finish guide to delivering high availability with DB2 Universal Database for Linux, UNIX and Windows. Two of IBM's leading DB2 high availability experts thoroughly review options related to both the database engine and the underlying platform. Along the way, they address the entire lifecycle, from planning and architecture through day-to-day administration. Coverage includes:

  • Fundamental concepts, real-world challenges, and tradeoffs
  • Choosing among today's diverse high availability alternatives
  • Configuring highly available databases
  • Disk-based availability, including split mirror copies and disk-based remote mirroring
  • Multi-partition issues, including instance takeover and tuning parameters
  • Clustering and failover: HACMP, Sun Cluster, HP Service Guard, MSCS, and Linux Steeleye
  • Monitoring and tuning databases to maximize availability
  • Backup and recovery in highly available environments
  • DB2's advanced availability features: standby servers, shared disk configurations, and no-data-loss recovery

If you're a DBA, your #1 priority is to keep your database running. If you're an architect, your #1 priority is building databases that can keep running. This book solves both problems.
