IBM’s newest elastic data warehouse
We’ve had a couple of big announcements in the past year for Db2 Warehouse on Cloud. We launched Db2 Warehouse Flex, IBM’s first elastic cloud data warehouse. Then, we brought it to Amazon Web Services (AWS). In that time, we’ve seen immense interest and growth in our business—but this is just the beginning.
Most cloud data warehouse architectures today separate storage and compute layers, allowing customers to scale their data warehouse resources on-demand to accommodate varying workloads (and, ultimately, pay for each component separately). However, storage capacity is often charged by the terabyte. While growing businesses will need to analyze data volumes of this scale in the future, any project starting with just tens or hundreds of gigabytes of data is overpaying for their data warehouse storage. Why pay for a whole terabyte of data when you only store a fraction of that in your current state?
Today, I’m excited to announce the availability of Db2 Warehouse Flex One, our newest (and smallest) elastic data warehouse. Flex One delivers independent scaling of storage and compute and self-service backup and restore in a precise configuration designed to scale with the growing enterprise.
