Robust database engine, but takes quite a bit of getting use to.

Pros: It is very easy to install, use, it can be used for small and large projects, there is a lot of documentation about DB2, and the support they offer is very good, as long as you have a good license.
I use it mainly for the execution of databases distributed in a banking project, its performance is very good

Cons: the bad thing that I see, is that you have to acquire a business license to use your maximum potential, apart from that there is also use IBM hardware, otherwise many conflicts are created

Overall: I learned how to cluster distributed databases, the use of IBM products, they are very powerful

Pros: What I like most about IBM DB2 is it can be managed from any job. Likewise, it saves data against loss, unauthorized access, or invalid entries.

Cons: What I like least about IBM DB2 is that it requires other applications that have been developed and those that are going to be implemented.
