    Ember, did you ever find a way to improve the execution time of your encrypted backup? I am dealing with the same issue.

      No, I haven’t. The main client I’m working with this on doesn’t seem to care much about duration, and they have HADR for fast recovery. The first thing I would be trying is to more evenly distribute tables across multiple tablespaces to allow more parallelism, but I haven’t tried it yet. Also, keeping up to date with fixpacks and versions may help, as IBM is working actively on improving Native Encryption. With DB2 11.1, they’re including Native encryption with all editions, so I suspect it will get wider use.
