InfoWorld: IBM hails automation in database upgrade

InfoWorld: IBM hails automation in database upgrade "IBM on September 17 will ship the first major upgrade to its DB2 Universal Database data management platform in nearly two years, focusing on functional automation, advanced clustering and Web services deployment.
Version 8.2 of the database, codenamed “Stinger,” features “autonomic” capabilities for self-managing and tuning, reducing the time required for administration by as much as much as 65 percent, according to IBM. Featured as part of IBM’s autonomic efforts is IBM Learning Optimizer, which allows the database to “learn” from past experiences and accelerates searches by uncovering the fastest route to information."

DB2 8.2 will also support .NET Framework-based triggers and stored procedures, and tightly integrate with Visual Studio.NET.
