    (1) Unlimited. There is no limit on the amount of data that can be stored in DB2. There are restrictions on the amount of memory and CPU cores.

    (2) Yes. See no problem there. But, it may not be as easy as using vb.net with sql server
    Disclaimer: This is based on my personal experience only.

    (3) The perf lag is common irrespective of whether it is db2, sql server etc etc . Depending on that, you design your apps in such a way that comm over the network is minimal. As said in (2), I see no reason not to use vb.net with db2.
