IBM DB2 Recovery Expert is a backup and recovery solution that protects mission-critical data.
DB2 Recovery Expert helps you to avoid accidental data loss or corruption by providing the fastest, inexpensive method of recovery. A self-managing tool that comes to your rescue quickly and easily, with minimal disruption to your system — allowing you to maintain high availability.
- DB2 Recovery Expert contains an Intelligent Recovery Manager. This feature helps users select the best method to recover DB2 objects. Users are provided with options to select a recovery plan based on a list of the available recovery points to best achieve your objectives.
- You can perform application versioning and recovery by tracking object versions and data dependencies. This is useful for customers who have a complex DB2 for z/OS environment with multiple production and non-production environments such as testing, unit testing, development, quality assurance (QA), pre-production staging and others. This allows you to "back out" or restore DB2 schema changes to a previous version before implementing in production. This versioning feature lets users maintain multiple versions of DB2 objects. Users can go back to a previous version as well as the ability to automatically restore authorization on dropped objects.
- DB2 Recovery Expert is an example of a storage-aware database tool, The use of storage-based fast replication to perform traditional data management copy functions can help implement backup and recovery methods with significant reductions in CPU usage and elapsed time. You can simplify business continuity and transform tedious disaster recovery processes into more efficient procedures.
