DB2 can be administered from either the command-line or a GUI. The command-line interface requires more knowledge of the product but can be more easily scripted and automated. The GUI is a multi-platform Java client that contains a variety of wizards suitable for novice users. DB2 supports both SQL and XQuery. DB2 has native implementation of XML data storage, where XML data is stored as XML (not as relational data or CLOB data) for faster access using XQuery.

DB2 LUW is a solid product that scales and performs with higher value to performance ratio than Oracle.

Issue resolution was organized and quick. This was a new version release (11.1) and IBM provided quick fixes and response. Feature rich and extreemly fast DBMS. Not as pricing as Oracle Enterprise but with same or more capabilities. Not as popular as Oracle so harder to find DBAs. Also, because not as popular, thrid party tools (performance measurement tools / ect) are harder to find. We are running a three not 36 core purescale cluster. This will replace our IBMi. We have Oracle RAC in-house also. Oracle consums more DBA time than does LUW.
