As MySQL is free, is it an option to add that type of database, and
migrate the data from DB2?  I assume that since you are evaluating
Radiant, your current DB2 tables won't be used, unless you build custom
extensions.  You could probably run MySQL on the same server as DB2 is
running now (AIX?)

Johannes,

I have no experience with DB2, but Radiant is a Rails application and
Rails has DB2 support for ActiveRecord provided directly by IBM:
