Migrating an On-Premises Db2 Database to the Cloud

THURSDAY, AUGUST 31 - 11am PT / 2pm ET
There is a bias among many database administrators (DBAs) that public clouds are neither capable of meeting the demands often placed on relational database management systems nor secure enough to house personally identifiable information (PII). Because of this, the use of a public cloud for database deployments is an option many DBAs are unwilling to explore. But, after a few years of using the cloud for other applications, companies are finding that the benefits of cloud computing – faster access to infrastructure, greater scalability, and higher availability top the list – are living up to expectations set by cloud providers. Consequently, cloud adoption is growing and the use of a public cloud for relational database deployments can no longer be avoided.

This presentation will explain why DBAs should be thinking about the cloud and provide an overview of IBM's Db2 cloud offerings: Db2 Hosted, Db2 on Cloud and Db2 Warehouse on Cloud. It will also address some things that must be taken into consideration when migrating a database to the cloud and describe how to keep confidential data secure during a ground-to-cloud migration.
