Moving data across different databases and even different platforms has been a common task in IT shops for quite some time. Applications may have been developed independently and over time, using packages and different technology; and data might reside on different platforms exploiting the specific platform strong points. However, there still is a growing need for applications that need to access all of this data for overall processing.
While new Web related technologies are emerging with the intent to provide functions to collect and integrate information across multiple databases and applications for access in real time, moving data to one location for overall processing is still a very common requirement.
This IBM Redbooks publication provides an overview of what is currently available within the DB2 Family of products (specifically DB2 for z/OS, and DB2 for UNIX and Windows) in terms of functions, tools, and utilities to satisfy the need for moving data. We focus on discussing High Performance Unload and Cross Loader; the first one is a tool, the second one is a new option of the Load utility, since they are the latest functions that IBM has released. We also introduce the concepts and some examples of using the Federated Database support.
