DB2 Express-C is the FREE edition of the enterprise-class IBM DB2 database server. It has a powerful database engine that supports advanced relational and NoSQL capabilities. DB2 is easy-to-use, includes self-managing capabilities, and offers enterprise-proven performance and scalability.

DB2 supports key development platforms including Ruby on Rails, PHP, Python, C/C++, Java, .Net, JSON, etc., and is well suited for a variety of Web, NoSQL, transactional, analytical, ERP, and other business applications.

There is no-charge for the use of DB2 Express-C software in this server template. If you require support or additional features you can easily upgrade to other editions of DB2.
