  • NGT Load for DB2®

    Load data faster than the native DB2 utility, while maintaining higher availability, with BMC Next Generation Technology Load for DB2. By analyzing the available CPU and memory, NGT Load uses massive parallelism to perform a truly high performance load of any size object. Additionally, with NGT Load's safe Load Resume architecture you can back out an unsuccessful Load instantly without recovery; or using parallel insert processing NGT Load can keep read/write access to your table space during load processing. NGT Load can also update catalog information as you go, so you can skip RUNSTATS.

  • NGT Unload

    BMC Next Generation Technology Unload for DB2 offers a high-speed, online alternative to the native DB2 unload utility. NGT Unload produces consistent point in time unloads without ever taking the objects out of RW. With its extensive native SQL support, NGT Unload performs high speed unloads directly from the VSAM datasets without the overhead of passing that SQL to DB2. Make multiple unloads, even with different formats, with one pass of a table space.

  • Recover Plus for DB2®

    Take advantage of three options for high-speed recovery with BMC Recover Plus for DB2. With advanced recovery features, Recover Plus for DB2 lets you choose the right approach for the job. With the backout recovery option, you can start from the current state of your database and back out erroneous updates until you reach your desired point. Alternatively, you can use the forward recovery function to restore an earlier point-in-time copy and apply updates from there. Finally, you have the option to use image copies and log records to recover over into a new table space and translate the object IDs. In addition, unlike traditional recovery methods, Recover Plus for DB2 allows you to recover dropped objects automatically.
