DB2 Express-C v9 for Power architecture

Since v8, the freely distributable version of IBMs database software, DB2 Express-C, is available for Windows and Linux, the latter supporting both intel and power architecture. Several days ago, I was looking for v9 to download, but couldn't find it. All the download list offered was v9 for Windows and Linux on x86 and ia64 systems.

After writing an email to db2x@ca.ibm.com, Ryan Chase and Ian Hakes of the db2 express-c community team reacted and added the v9 ppc64 (power) version to the list again. It's available in the Express-C download area. You 'll need to login before selecting the download.
