A majority of applications running on the web require data and databases. In fact, I’d say 99% of websites are controlled by data-driven applications. And new types of data are being created each and every second from social interaction, transaction, and geolocation data, for example.
With a variety of data management, warehousing, and analysis options available, how do you know which one to choose? Are you working mainly with unstructured data? If so, then a Big Data solution might be what you need. Big Data is relatively new, however, and might not be the best fit for your company. There are plenty of other options, one of these being IBM DB2.
GoGrid and IBM have teamed up to offer a quick and easy way to deploy an IBM DB2 database solution in the cloud. If you’re an IBM Independent Software Vendor (ISV), you can deploy a pre-configured DB2 server and have it up and running on the GoGrid cloud in literally minutes.
So, why would you and other ISVs want to go this route? For starters, you’d get:
- Faster time-to-market with your DB2 offering
- Easy and quick proof-of-concepts (POCs) or demoing of your DB2 solution
- Consolidated cloud infrastructure and DB2 licensing invoices
To help you get started, IBM and GoGrid recently recorded a webinar that explains the benefits of using DB2 as your database solution. If your customers are application developers needing databases to power their application or you, as an ISV, want to provide a solution for your clients to demo—and potentially convert this demo or POC into a full-fledged offering—this webinar is for you.
