A customer came to me recently looking for Db2 Express-C which he had previously used to distribute to developers in his organization.  I couldn’t find Db2 Express-C v11.  Was there no longer a current free version of Db2 for developers and academics?!?!?

Seems it has just been rebranded and expanded.  Now there’s the Db2 Developer Edition available for free that’s even better.

  1. There are three form factors:
    1. Code that you can install yourself on bare metal or in a virtualized environment.
    2. A Docker container.
    3. A fully-managed DBaaS cloud implementation.

These are fully-featured editions of Db2 for a proof-of-concept or even a small production implementation.

Caveats:

  • Free means support comes from your peers, not IBM.
  • You are limited in terms of data stored and memory exploited.

You can acquire support and eliminate the limits for a Db2 Developer Edition by purchasing and applying a license key.  No re-installation or data migration will be necessary.

Get started with Db2 today.
