Jump Start Services for DB2 LUW
Objective: Quickly implement DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows.
The DB2 for Linux, Unix, and Windows Jump Start Services engagement is designed to jump start your
organization into the brave new world of DB2. This service provides customized assistance and skill transfer
with planning, installation, configuration, and implementation of DB2 for Linux, Unix, and Windows in your organization.
This service engagement involves a phased approach to planning, installing, implementing, and
administration of DB2. The Planning phase of this engagement involves customized assistance with planning
for the installation, configuration, and implementation phases of DB2. This phase consists of planning for hardware, software, communications, and database requirements.
The Installation phase of this engagement involves customized assistance with the deployment and base
configuration of the DB2 environment. This phase consist of properly installing and configuring the software
components, identified during the planning phase, to support the DB2 environment in your organization.
The Implementation phase of this engagement involves customized assistance with the implementation of
the DB2 database and database objects such as table spaces, containers, and buffer pools identified during the planning phase.
The Administration phase of this engagement involves customized assistance with the administration of the
DB2 environment. This phase consists of using the administration tools packaged with DB2 products to manage the DB2 systems in your organization.
Hardware requirement planning involves properly sizing and configuring the underlying hardware components
(cpu, memory, disk, network) to support your DB2 environment, including optimizing RAID disk subsystems.
Software requirement planning involves identifying required software components at the operating system
level such as communication protocols and other software packages required to support the DB2
environment. It also include identifying the individual components of DB2 which will be installed on the
database servers, runtime clients and administration clients. Database requirement planning involves
identifying and mapping your organizations standards and procedures for the DB2 environment.
Installation involves loading DB2 software and fix packs on both the database servers and client workstations
. The installation procedure should be standardized for database servers, runtime clients and administration
clients. Configuration involves setting up the server and client workstations. The database server workstation
configuration includes creating and configuring administration instances, as well as development, test, user
acceptance testing, and production instances. This involves properly configuring environment variables,
registry variables, instance configuration parameters, communication protocols, authentication, and administration authorities for your DB2 systems.
Implementing databases in the DB2 environment involves creating databases and database objects such as
table spaces, containers, buffer pools, tables, and indexes, as required, in addition to properly configuring database specific parameters for your DB2 databases.
Administration involves identifying routine database administration tasks that should be performed on a
regular basis. These tasks involve using the DB2 tools to routinely perform database reorganization, collect statistics, and perform database backups.
