Does HADR feature need any add-on product / license or is it part
of the base version of DB2 EE software ?

Thanks

Depends upon which "base" version of DB2 you have. It is included with
DB2 ESE, but not with DB2 Workgroup ... for example.

It can be purchased as an add-on to Workgroup or Express versions. If you
license DB2 by processor, which is how ESE is licensed in version 8 (I am
not up to speed on all the V9 licensing options), then you only have to pay
one CPU license on your standby server, assuming that it ONLY contains one
or more HADR standby databases.

One interesting thing about the DB2 Express-C Supported version (about $3000
per year with fixpacks and support) is that it includes HADR in that price,
although you will need one licensed copy for each server.

Licensing details vary by both DB2 release (DB2 V.8.2, DB2 9, DB2 9.5,
etc.) and by DB2 edition (Enterprise, Express, Workgroup, etc.).
Regularly discussed in developerWorks articles by Paul Zikopoulos:

DB2 9.5:

DB2 9:

DB2 Version 8 releases:

and also available under product info on the IBM web site, e.g.:
