DB2 9 and End Of Service For DB2 Version 7

(Originally posted 2007-02-08.)

Willie Favero is also blogging about this – and I stole the link from him…

Here’s the End of Service announcement for DB2 Version 7. It goes out of service on June 30, 2008.

I’ve just sat through four days of the T3 class for DB2 9 for z/OS – in Silicon Valley Lab. My “take home” message is that there’s lots of stuff in all the usual areas. It’s a truly exciting release.

Note: It’s “DB2 9” and not “DB2 Version 9” at this point.

So, with the End of Service announcement for Version 7, coupled with what I know of 9, Version 8 is a great place to be right now – in my opinion.

More on DB2 9 later.
