IBM DB2 Development and Test Environments

Create space-efficient virtual copies of your DB2 production data in minutes for nondisruptive dev/test.

NetApp FlexClone®, a key technology in Data ONTAP®, allows you to instantly create and replicate DB2 databases in minutes using less storage space than other vendors. 

These virtual copies of your production data allow your developers to work on essential business operations such as patching, development, testing, reporting, training, and quality assurance without disrupting business continuity. Leveraged with virtualization software, FlexClone enables DBAs to spin up customized isolated environments including OS platforms and databases for each development project, eliminating sharing of databases. And, when time is critical, you can leverage NetApp FlexVol® to provision storage resources for additional application development projects or urgent testing of emergency patches.
