Trends and Applications



Many database administrators now feel that the best way to preserve database reliability may be to take over the job of backing up their own databases. Just as end users are happier when they can do their own password resets or restore an accidentally deleted file, DBAs want greater control over their backups, restores and recoveries, and also the peace of mind of knowing that it is done to their standards. The key to making this work is integrating database applications with purpose built backup appliances (PBBAs).

IBM DB2 V10.1 introduced Row and Column Access Control (RCAC) as a new feature for securing data within a DB2 table. In Row and Column Access Control, permissions are defined on a table to restrict rows that are exposed. Rows being exposed means that they are available to be returned in the result set, or can be inserted, or can be updated or deleted, with the limitation of the authorities the user has on the table.
