IBM releases free DB2 Viper database

IBM, creator of the first popular commercial database (IMS), has followed in the foot-steps of Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server by releasing a free version of their popular DBA2 database.

http://news.com.com/IBM+sets+DB2+database+free/2100-1012_3-6032676.html?tag=html.alert

Like the free Oracle XE, IBM imposes limits on the hardware use by DB2 XC:

“DB2 Express-C is the same database as IBM's commercial offerings but the company places limits on what kind of hardware it can run on.

It can be deployed on systems with two processor cores or up to two dual-core chips on Advanced Micro Devices- or Intel-based servers. The memory limit is 4GB but there are no limits on the size of database or number of users.”

Code named “Viper”, DB2 XC is intended to complete against MySQL with the huge numbers of people choosing free database management:

“Developer research firm Evans Data found that more than 70 percent of developers had installed and used an open-source database last year. Of the open-source databases, MySQL was by far the most popular among respondents, according to Evans Data.

IBM said that a future version of DB2 Express-C, code-named Viper, will include hybrid relational and XML database features. Viper is due for release this year.”
