We had a guy in here recently who worked extensively with both DB2 and Oracle. 
He insisted that the co-location features of DB2 are far better than the those 
in oracle(all oracle has is the clustering factor). 

DB2 provices features to order data on insert and its measure of co-location is 
supposedly far more sophisticated than Oracle's. He insisted that this gave DB2 
an edge.

Co-location just means ordering data to get a good clustering factor. Anyone 
familiar with DB2's co-location tools?
