The database built to run the world’s mission-critical workloads is on AWS.

In May 2022, IBM officially announced its strategic partnership with Amazon Web Services to deliver IBM SaaS products in the AWS marketplace. IBM's SaaS products on AWS are designed to provide customers with the availability, elastic scaling, governance and security required for their mission-critical workloads, fully managed in the cloud. The IBM and AWS partnership gives customers the opportunity to quickly get started with IBM SaaS products, integrated into the AWS services and experience.  

“The IBM and AWS partnership allows our joint customers to accelerate their data modernization strategy in the cloud by combining the mission-critical reliability and performance of our databases and AWS' cloud infrastructure,” said Edward Calvesbert, Executive Director - Product Management, IBM Data Management. “Through our multi-year agreement, IBM’s entire databases portfolio will be available to run as software or SaaS on AWS. For existing IBM Db2 and Netezza data warehouse customers, migrating to a fully managed SaaS deployment on AWS has never been easier, with risk-free, frictionless upgrades.”

Why Db2 on AWS?
