IBM has prepared a DB2 pureScale Trial and Demo Kit. With this kit, you can run a DB2 pureScale trial environment on 3 physical servers (any generic x86_64 hardware or even a set of VMware images). This kit is very easy to use. You simply download the kit, copy it onto a USB flash drive, and then insert that USB flash drive into a server (or mount it as a device in a Virtual Machine), and then boot from the USB drive in BIOS. It will then run the operating system, DB2 pureScale, demo, and the rest of the kit contents. Here is a screen capture of the kit welcome page.
To get the kit, please visit the DB2 pureScale Trial and Demo Kit page on IBM developerWorks. If you have any questions about the kit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with subject “IBM DB2 pureScale Acceleration Kit for Trial and Demonstration”.
