Minimum version of DB2? - IBM DB2

Hello All, What is the minimum version of DB2 that I would need to have a hot spare? I am concerned with ANY down time for the DB and need a way to have a second Server take over, immediately, if the first one fails. Needless to say I would like to ovoid the $32,500 per CPU of the ESE version with DPF, for just a hot spare. Thank you for your info, Brad...

    Default Minimum version of DB2?

    Hello All,

    What is the minimum version of DB2 that I would need to have a hot
    spare? I am concerned with ANY down time for the DB and need a way to
    have a second Server take over, immediately, if the first one fails.
    Needless to say I would like to ovoid the $32,500 per CPU of the ESE
    version with DPF, for just a hot spare.

    Thank you for your info,
    Brad

    Brad,

    The DPF is not designed to provide HA ... it is designed to provide
    scalability. There are many factors that would go into a determination as
    to whether or not DPF is necessary ... examples are total raw data
    volumes, SQL complexity, table sizes, etc.

    In terms of HA, DB2 UDB has supported HACMP and like products for as long
    as I can remember ... possibly back to V5. Log shipping is another option
    .... it was added in V7.2.

    With V8, my understanding is that you are only required to license 1 CPU
    on a hot standby server, not all of the CPUs.

    I believe Ian is write, if you read the announcement letter:
    [url]http://www.ibmlink.ibm.com/usalets&parms=H_202-214:[/url]

    "Licensing of Standby Servers

    In idle standby or active standby, you must acquire correct number of
    server installs and the correct number of users. "
