The DB2Night Show #22: Comparing Oracle and DB2 LUW, Burt Vialpando

Posted by scott in DB2 LUW
In our 22nd show, we were joined by special guest Burt Vialpando, IBM, from the Software Migration Project Office. You might think that a DB2 LUW and Oracle comparison by an IBM presenter would be a "hard sell" by IBM, but, to the contrary, Burt did an outstanding and "fair" job of looking at architecture and administration of these industry leading databases. True, Burt highlighted some "DB2 advantages", but 95% of his talk was a simple and straight forward side-by-side comparison. Studio Audience members rated this show very highly - watch the replay and find out why!

Also, today was a lucky day for EVERYONE in our Studio Audience. For participants that arrived on time, early in our show we provided special instructions to type "AMAZON.COM" in one of the survey response boxes. Everyone who followed the instructions correctly is winning a $10 Amazon.com gift certificate! DB2 LUW and The DB2Night Show are both rewarding! Punctuality is also a virtue!

Our Shameless Marketing Moment

During DBI's quick show sponsor commercial break, we introduced you to a $2.2 Million UPDATE statement. Even though this statement ran in under a second for each execution, its CPU cost was enormous and it put the mission critical OLTP application at risk for locking problems. DBI's Brother-Panther® for DB2 LUW makes it easy to analyze SQL workloads for any period of time and discover real root cause problematic SQL like no other tools can (thanks to Patented technology).

DBI's comprehensive performance and configuration repository with the industry's best trend graphs enable you to monitor and manage your databases with confidence, improve stability, and achieve scalability with existing hardware.
