Hello there,

DB2 is a database software developed by IBM. It is one of the oldest relational database management system (RDMS). In fact, it is the first one to use SQL (Structured Query Language). It is best used on Data Warehousing. It both supports 32 bit and 64 bit architecture and is a cross platform.

Meaning, it can work in Linux, Mac, Windows, Solaris, etc. Well, when it comes to competition, nothing can beat oracle. But DB2 comes second place and Microsoft SQL Server as third. If you want to try DB2 there is a free version called DB2 Express-C. You can download DB2 Express-C here:
