    Unanswered: DB2 BLU on Windows

    Hi,
    Does anyone know if DB2 BLU Acceleration is available for Windows? If not, do you have any "official" IBM link that says that?

    At this momment I'm running DB2 9.7 on Windows 2008, but my boss is intersted of 10.5 with BLU. I've found out some IDUG presentations that said that only AIX and Linux support is available, but nothing on IBM site.

    @lelle12: from that page I understand that DB2 10.5 is available on all those platforms.
    For BLU I've found out this article: DB2 with BLU Acceleration: A rapid adoption guide which has a system requirements section.

    Hmm, that's interesting since the title says "DB2 with BLU Acceleration for Linux, UNIX and Windows". I posted a question at comp.databases.ibm-db2

    Matthias Nicola (one of the authors of the article you refer to) sometimes participates there, so perhaps he or someone else can straighten this out.

    Meanwhile I've found this link:
    Software Product Compatibility Reports - Detailed System Requirements
    At this moment, BLU is only for AIX and Linux.

    Thank you for your help

    Yes confusing:
    if you want the latest version of db2 you install v10.5
    if you want to benefit from BLU technology and you are NOT on aix or linux... you're out of luck

    Same as PureScale I'm afraid
    Somewhere between " too small" and " too large" lies the size that is just right.

    Just a follow-up: starting with 10.5 FP5, BLU technology is available on Windows too.
