A Window into Db2 on Cloud

DB2 has multiple SaaS offerings that run on IBM Cloud and other Cloud Platforms. This session will primarily focus on Db2 on Cloud and will introduce product features and information about the infrastructure used to build this service covering things like HA, network, storage, and Kubernetes usage. This will be interesting to people who want to learn about Db2 on Cloud, how it is built, and how it leverages Db2 Capabilities to provide a Highly Available, Elastic environment which customers can use without having to worry about many management or administrative headaches.

Speaker Bio: Andrew Hilden – IBM

Chief Architect of Db2 on Cloud and the Cloud Services Architect for Watson Query. He is involved extensively in the development and architecture of several data-oriented cloud services at IBM.

Outside of the office he enjoys spending time with his wife and kids and enjoys trying to fix and build things.

Extending Db2’s Reach to Other Data and Data Formats

Data of interest no longer resides only in the data warehouse. Often access to data is desired from other databases, filesystems, and now commonly object storage as the basis for the emerging lake house architecture. This presentation will look at the various technologies available in Db2 to access data residing outside the database including how Db2 can integrate with the Data Lake House.

Speaker Bio: Mike Springgay - IBM

Db2 Warehouse Architect focused on the common engine components. Prior to that he was responsible for extending Db2's SQL compatibility features, routine infrastructure, and client server connectivity.
