Hi Padma,

An instance is DB2 code that manages data. It controls what can be done to the data, and manages system resources assigned to it. Each instance is a complete environment. ... An instance has its own databases (which other instances cannot access), and all its database partitions share the same system directories. It also has separate security from other instances on the same machine (system).
Each instance can contain one or more databases, each of which inherits settings from their instance.

Thanks,
Nikhil .S.
