Download DB2 Express-C 9.7.5

Download DB2 Express-C 9.7.5IBM recently released a new edition of DB2 Express-C, the free edition of their powerful commercial database. You can grab DB2 Express-C 9.7.5 for Linux, Unix, and Windows here.

This new version includes support for Oracle compatibility (which was previously only available for commercial editions), and a few other features, including an enhanced db shell known as CLP+.

If you downloaded DB2 in the past, take this new edition for a spin and let us know what you think. If you haven’t, now would be a great time to try out DB2 Express-C in its enhanced incarnation.

It’s entirely free of charge and there are no limits on the amount of data you can store in development, testing, or production.

In a future post I will also explain why, contrary to what some may believe, it’s an excellent choice for startups that are looking for a solution that goes beyond the relational paradigm.
