We elucidate the nonperturbative aspects of non-conformal 2+1D
Yang-Mills-like worldvolume theories on both isotropic and anisotropic
non-supersymmetric D2 brane solutions of type II supergravity. Because
of broken conformality, these theories possess running coupling similar
to the real-world QCD. We implement the holographic notion to study some
salient QCD-like confining properties, e.g., flux-tube tension and
glueball masses in the low-energy nonperturbative sector of these
non-SUSY theories. In the case of anisotropic D2 brane, variation of the
anisotropy parameter in the low-energy scale manifests a dual picture of
HP transition and QCD confinement-deconfinement phase transition from
the behaviours of the above QCD features in the chosen pure YM theory.
We contemplate the same from an empirical finite temperature scenario.
The transition point exhibits a smooth crossover. We argue this issue by
speculating the presence of "partially deconfined" mixed QCD phases
where glueballs and quark-gluon plasma coexist. Holographically, one may
comprehend these phases as the dual of small evaporating black holes.
